2008 Ranking | 4

Cameron Maybin was drafted 10th overall by the Detroit Tigers in the 2005 draft. After spending two years in the system, including a stint in the Major Leagues, Maybin was traded with a slew of prospects in exchange for young slugger Miguel Cabrera and southpaw Dontrelle Willis. Maybin spent all but eight games of the 2008 season in Double-A where he should have been in his development. He had an impressive eight-game showing with the Marlins and was slatted to start the 2009 season in the Major Leagues, having never taken an at-bat in Triple-A. Maybin has great 5-tool potential and will only get better with experience. He has outstanding speed and should be able to steal plenty of bases while hitting for reasonably good power. To me, a good comparison would be Carlos Beltran for his potential.

2009 Outlook

Maybin began the 2009 season with the Florida Marlins and unless he really plays poorly, he should be there from here on out.
