Ramblings: Maybin, Kawakami, Uggla

  • The San Diego Padres have approached the Florida Marlins about a possible deal for centerfielder Cameron Maybin.  Maybin is a terrific defensive center-fielder (+5.1 UZR in his career) and still is young with tremendous upside.  Florida received Maybin and Andrew Miller (who was traded yesterday) in the blockbuster trade for Miguel Cabrera a couple years ago.
  • The Atlanta Braves have sent right-hander Kenshin Kawakami down to Double-A.  Kawakami put up a 5.15 ERA last year, and has now been demoted and removed from the 40-man roster.  Atlanta still owes him over $6.5M for next year.
  • The Florida Marlins have broken off talks with second-baseman Dan Uggla, and a trade might be imminent.  Uggla would be a premiere bat on the market, and teams such as the Tigers have already said that they are interested in the powerful player.
