Padres, Maybin agree to a five-year extension

Per Dan Hayes of the North County Times, the Padres and Cameron Maybin have agreed to a deal that will keep the center fielder in San Diego through the 2016 season.

The five-year deal is worth $25 million and the club has an option for 2017 as well.

Cameron has certainly emerged as a core player,” [GM Josh] Byrnes said in a team press release. “During his time with the Padres, he has impressed us with his player and with his character. He has shown us that he is committed to the Padres, and we are happy to secure his rights through 2017.”

Last year, Maybin hit .264 with nine homers and 40 RBIs and stole 40 bases

In our fantasy baseball rankings, Maybin is our No. 43 outfielder.
