Maybin went 4-for-6 with a triple and scored four runs in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Maybin has been white-hot in the last week, going 14-for-27 (.519) with one double, two triples, one home run, four walks and five RBI. His slash line now sits at .327/.393/.434. Maybin has made modest, but perhaps not statistically significant improvement in his K rate, which sits at 16.9 per cent (down from 18.4 per cent in 2015). However, his 2016 numbers are fueled by an unsustainable .395 BABIP. Use Maybin's success well, but don't get fooled into thinking this 29-year-old's value will continue to arc up in following years.

Maybin went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles and two runs in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The outfielder's line is up to .321/.388/.424 following Saturday's production, which also marked the fifth consecutive game in which he's hit safely. Maybin has multi-hit efforts in four of those contests, and has driven in two runs apiece over the first pair of games against the Royals. Despite appearing in only 86 games to date this season, Maybin is now just two RBI from equaling the second-best total of his career in that category, which he established over 147 contests with the Padres in 2012.

Maybin is not in the lineup for Game 2 of the Tigers' doubleheader Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Just a breather, though he probably wishes he was active. After his 2-for-4 Game 1 line, he's 6-for-11 with five runs scored and one driven in over his last three contests. Despite missing time and showing a power decrease, Maybin has hit well with a .316/.385/.410 line on the year. Tyler Collins will start in his place Thursday night.

Maybin (thumb) is back in the lineup Friday against the Indians, batting second and playing center field.

EDGE Analysis

Maybin sat out of Thursday's contest to rest his ailing thumb, but it seems that it's back to full strength and game-ready. The outfielder will slot back into the top third of Detroit's order, and should continue to do so as long as his thumb doesn't act up again.

Maybin is getting a day off Thursday to rest his thumb, Tony Paul of the Detroit News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The thumb, which sidelined him earlier this month, started acting up in Wednesday's game, so Maybin will get a day to get right Thursday. It's apparently not a big concern. JaCoby Jones will start in center field and bat eighth Thursday.

Maybin (thumb) is back in the lineup Monday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Maybin will return to his regular role in center field following a five-game absence, and will bat atop the order as well. The Tigers had delayed disclosing a lineup in order to buy more time to assess Maybin's availability, and it appears his pregame workouts went well enough to earn the starting nod. That being said, his plate appearances will likely be monitored closely by manager Brad Ausmus.

Maybin (thumb) a href="https://twitter.com/DetroitTigersPR/status/772443984375517184">remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Maybin's thumb injury has cost him five straight games, paving the way for Tyler Collins and JaCoby Jones to see more time in center field. Though Maybin's return date is uncertain, he's been cleared of any ligament damage to his thumb, so a long-term absence would seem to be off the table.

Maybin (thumb) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Maybin's fourth straight absence as a result of the thumb injury. The Tigers sent him for an MRI earlier in the week to get a better read on the issue, and fortunately, no new ligament damage was found. He should be safe from the DL with active rosters now at 40 players but a possible return date remains uncertain.

Maybin (thumb) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

An MRI taken on Maybin's thumb earlier this week proved to be negative, but he is still not 100 percent, and will sit out for the third straight game despite a team off day Thursday. JaCoby Jones will man center field for the Tigers in Maybin's place.
