Maybin not worried after exiting with wrist sprain

NEW YORK -- Center fielder Cameron Maybin left Saturday's 9-0 loss to the Mets with a sprained right wrist, though he's not expected to miss much time because of it.

"It's been kind of bothering me for a week, and [today] it got a little worse," Maybin said. "It was affecting the way I was swinging the bat. I hope it's a day-or-two thing."

Maybin was hitless in his first two at-bats before being replaced by Blake Tekotte to start the sixth inning. He had caught a fly ball from David Wright at the warning track to end the fifth before he departed.

"Cam is fine. He's got a little bit of a wrist situation, but we think it will calm down," Padres manager Bud Black said. "It's nothing significant."

Black said that Maybin has been taking extra batting practice, in some cases after games, to try and find his way out of a funk at the plate. After Saturday, Maybin is hitting .216.

After the game, Maybin didn't sound like he was too interested in missing much time, if any at all.

"I don't like coming out of games or missing any games," Maybin said. "But I want to get it [wrist] right as quick as I can."
