Identifying Cameron Maybin’s role with the Yankees going forward

The trade deadline may have come and gone, but when a Yankee goes deep, Cameron Maybin is on #HugWatch. Even DJ LeMahieu, who may be considered “old school” or reserved, loves a good hug from Cam. Maybin has become such a fun character in the clubhouse and with fans on social media. He’s a player whom everyone loves, and he’s been more than what the Yankees needed from them on the field.

When the veteran outfielder was acquired in late April, no one thought much of it. However, with injury after injury striking the Yankees’ outfield, Maybin was given his opportunity and he took advantage.
