Maybin (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin suffered a hairline fracture in his left wrist at the beginning of spring training and has yet to play in a game this season. The 29-year-old appears to be close to fully healthy and will likely step into the starting center field role upon his return to the big leagues. Maybin hit .267/.327/.370 with 10 home runs, 59 RBI, and 23 stolen bases in 2015.

Maybin's MRI on his shoulder revealed no structural damage and he's expected to restart his rehab in five days, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin's rehab was put on halt after the shoulder injury, but it appears he's avoided a major setback. While it will likely result in his timetable being pushed back slightly. Expect further updates on the speedster as he makes more progress but Maybin should take on the primary role in center field when he returns to the Tigers.

Maybin aggravating his shoulder injury while making a diving catch during a rehab game Saturday at Triple-A Toledo and will undergo an MRI in Detroit on Sunday, Matthew Mowery of The Oakland Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Manager Brad Ausmus said the team wouldn't comment on the severity of Maybin's setback until the results of the MRI are read, but it's a discouraging development for the outfielder, who first suffered the shoulder injury in the offseason when he slipped on an icy porch. Maybin was expected to contend for starting center field duties upon returning from the DL, but any unfortunate MRI results would solidify Anthony Gose's hold on the regular gig at that position.

Maybin (wrist) will begin another rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, reports MLive.com.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin was recalled Wednesday, but had remained on the disabled list. The healing process for his wrist had been slow and he suffered a setback in his progress when he was hit by a pitch near the original injury during his last rehab stint earlier in April. Fingers crossed Maybin's return is not interrupted again.

Maybin (wrist) was recalled from his rehab assignment Wednesday but he will remain on the disabled list.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin had a bit of a setback over the weekend when he was hit in the same wrist he fractured early on in spring training. According to ESPN's Katie Strang, Maybin will be given a few days off to rest his wrist before getting back into the lineup down at Triple-A Toledo. In all likelihood, Maybin will need a few more outings during his rehab assignment to show that his wrist is ready for game action before the Tigers activate him from the DL.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin was reaching the final stages of his recovery from a non-displaced hairline fracture in his left wrist, but Sunday's development throws a wrench into those plans. After a battery of tests is undertaken, the Tigers' organization will likely deduce whether this is in fact a setback.

Manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that the Tigers are still targeting a mid-April return to the big league club for Maybin (wrist), Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin began a rehab assignment last week and has not suffered any setback of sort, so the Tigers are still hoping to get him back at some point around the middle of this month. After playing four games with High-A Lake Elsinore, Maybin will move his rehab work to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, and he could need just a few more games before he is ready to go.

Maybin (wrist) began a rehab assignment with High-A Lakeland on Thursday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin went 0-for-2 with a walk in Thursday's game with Lakeland. It's not clear how long he will remain in the minors, but he missed nearly all of spring training with a broken bone in his wrist, so the Tigers may let him use most of the maximum 15 days allowed per his rehab assignment.

Maybin (wrist) was placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday, MLive.com's Chris Iott reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Maybin has resumed hitting after fracturing his wrist early in spring training, but because he missed nearly all of camp, he'll need to get several games under his belt as part of a rehab assignment before he's activated. In the meantime, the Tigers figure to go with Anthony Gose as their primary center fielder.
