Maybin (thumb) was activated from the disabled list Sunday, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck.

EDGE Analysis

Maybin is listed as the Tigers' starting center fielder in their lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, signaling that he is ready to return to action and will do so Sunday. Maybin is hitting .325 with a .394 OBP on the season, and manager Brad Ausmus is hoping he can pick up where he left off prior to his disabled-list stint, as Maybin will hit second in Sunday's batting order.

Maybin (thumb) will take batting practice Saturday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After hitting off of a tee earlier in the week, Maybin will progress to live pitching as he continues to work back from a thumb injury. While the Tigers are yet to confirm, Maybin will likely require a rehab assignment before returning to the big league club.

Maybin (thumb) took 30 swings off a tee Thursday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday's activity was a test for Maybin's injured thumb and it sounds like he passed with flying colors, as the outfielder is expected to hit some more Friday. Maybin still has several hurdles to clear -- he will ultimately need to progress to batting practice, then live BP, then presumably a rehab assignment -- so a return before roster expansion seems like a stretch.

Maybin (thumb) is expected to begin taking swings within the next few days, Katie Strang of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maybin's recovery from a thumb injury continues to progress at a solid clip and he's almost reached the final hurdle. He's already begun taking part in some fielding activity and it appears that a batting program could be in the works later this week. He'll likely begin by taking dry swings before moving on to taking live batting practice.

Maybin (thumb) shagged fly balls in the outfield over the weekend and hopes to participate in batting activities this week, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Brad Ausmus added that it hasn't bothered Maybin to close his glove, yet there is no urgency to get him back on the field. Evidently, the veteran outfielder is making strides towards recovery, but Tyler Collins will continue to receive opportunities in his absence.

Maybin (thumb) was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Maybin has officially been placed on the DL. The Tigers have made the assignment retroactive to August 4, so Maybin can return to action on Aug. 19. In the meantime, Tyler Collins will continue to get the bulk of the starts in center field.

Maybin (thumb) will be placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maybin attempted to gain clearance for a return Monday but still felt pain in his thumb, and upon further evaluation, he was found to have a Grade 2 thumb sprain. The DL stint can be made retroactive to Aug. 4, meaning Maybin will be eligible to return as soon as Aug. 19, but it's uncertain if he'll be ready by then. A corresponding roster move was not immediately announced but look for Tyler Collins to continue on as the primary option in center field.

Maybin (thumb) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Make it six straight absences for Maybin, who will be replaced in center field by Andrew Romine on Tuesday. He has avoided the DL to this point, but as of Monday, Maybin was still experiencing pain when hitting -- so while he was able to take batting practice prior to the series opener in Seattle, his status remains in limbo ahead of Wednesday's game.

Maybin (thumb) took batting practice but is out of the lineup Monday against the Mariners, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was expected to be back in action Monday, Maybin's return will have to wait at least one more day. Because he still feels pain when hitting, the team plans to have Maybin get a CT scan on Tuesday. Until the results of his examination are known, Maybin should still be considered day-to-day.
