Maybin out with concussion symptoms

MESA, Ariz. -- New Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin is out with concussion symptoms, manager Bud Black disclosed Saturday morning. Maybin hit his head on a post fielding a fly ball during practice before the game on Wednesday and hasn't played since.

Black said Maybin is day-to-day and has been held out of game action the last few days because of precautionary reasons. He was hitting in the batting cage on Saturday, though, taking soft toss.

"You guys may have noticed that Maybin hasn't been in the lineup the last couple of days," Black said. "He has a little bit of concussion symptoms. He was doing an outfield drill a couple of days ago and hit his head on the top of the wall. We've kept him out for precautionary reasons, but our medical people think he's going to be fine. He should be back in a couple of days."

The Padres obtained Maybin from the Marlins this past Nov. 13 in exchange for two right-handed relievers: Edward Mujica and Ryan Webb. Maybin is expected to patrol the outfield with Ryan Ludwick in left and Will Venable in right.

Maybin is 2-for-6 this spring with two doubles and two runs scored. He batted .232 in 82 games last year for Florida.
