Tigers sign Cameron Maybin to a one-year deal

The Detroit Tigers have signed their old friend Cameron Maybin to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million.

This will be Maybin’s third stint in Detroit. He was drafted by the Tigers in 2005, made his big league debut there in 2007 and was traded to the Marlins in the trade which brought Miguel Cabrera to Motown. He was traded to the Tigers before the 2016 season, played that year there and then was sent off by Detroit again the following November.

In all, Maybin is a 13-year veteran who has played for the Marlins, Padres, Braves, Angels, Mariners, Yankees, and Astros, in addition to Detroit.
