    Maybin is at: 63 GB, 12 line drives, 29 fly balls, 4 pop ups, 1 bunt, and 1 unknown this year. That’s 57.7% of his balls put in play on the ground. This is starting to become Luis Castillo slap hitter esque. I could handle low HR totals if he’s finding gaps but he’s not. He’s sliding down mine and a lot of people’s prospects lists.
