Braves seeking big return for Cameron Maybin

Teams are reportedly interested in outfielder Cameron Maybin, but the Atlanta Braves are looking for a big return.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves are listening to offers for outfielder Cameron Maybin, but are letting teams know that they will need to be "blown away" by the offer to pull the trigger on a deal according to's Mark Bowman.

Maybin's been one of Atlanta's most consistent offensive threats this season. He has exceeded all expectations since being acquired from the San Diego Padres as part of the Craig Kimbrel trade. He has hit .282 with eight home runs and currently leads the team with 47 RBIs.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Atlanta offered Maybin around earlier this season. One such offer was to the San Francisco Giants that would have potentially netted Atlanta Angel Pagan and a prospect.

Maybin's performance could have him in the Braves plans for the near future. He is owed just $8 million next season and has a club option of $9 million for 2017. Atlanta has Mallex Smith currently at Triple-A Gwinnett and Maybin could continue to bridge the gap until he is ready. The Braves could elect to hold onto Maybin at the deadline, but make him available this winter.
