PEORIA, Ariz. -- Manager Bud Black said outfielder Cameron Maybin, who will miss two to three months after rupturing his left biceps tendon, will meet with the Padres' doctors later this week in San Diego to determine if surgery is needed.

"It's still way too early to come up with anything definitive in terms of a course of action," Black said of Maybin. "We'll know more in a week to 10 days."

Maybin injured himself making a diving catch Sunday against the Dodgers and left the game with what the team originally feared was a shoulder injury. However, an MRI on Monday revealed that he did not suffer any damage to the shoulder capsule or rotator cuff.

Black said it will ultimately be Maybin's call if he wants to have surgery or not. The surgery, of course, could alter the timeline as to when Maybin will play. But the Padres are fairly certain that he will play sometime during the regular season.

In 2013, Maybin was limited to 14 games after spending time on the disabled list with an impingement to his right wrist, which later required season-ending surgery. He also missed time after he tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
