Tigers trade Cameron Maybin to Angels for minor league pitcher

For their first move today, they traded centerfielder Cameron Maybin to the Los Angeles Angels for minor-league right-handed pitcher Victor Alcantara.

The Angels will exercise Maybin’s $9 million option for 2017.

Alcantara, 23, posted a 4.30 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 29 games – 20 starts – for Double-A Arkansas this season. He is not considered a top prospect.

In essence, the Tigers simply decided not to pick up Maybin’s option. This was not an unsurprising move, given the team’s plan to trim payroll this off-season in an attempt to become more flexible on and off the field.

In 2016, Maybin posted a career-best offensive season, hitting .315 with an on-base percentage of .383. He hit four home runs and drove in 43 runs. After returning from a broken wrist and bum shoulder in mid-May, Maybin sparked the team at the top of the batting order with an energizing brand of play mixed with clubhouse leadership.
