Maxwell entered Saturday's game after Nori Aoki left with a leg injury. He went 1-for-4 with a two-run shot in the win over the Dodgers.

The long ball was Maxwell's sixth of the season. He could see a few extra starts if Aoki is forced to miss any action, making him an intriguing option in daily fantasy leagues, but probably best left on waivers in standard leagues.

Maxwell is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Jarrett Parker will take over in right field as Maxwell sits after starting four straight games in place of Hunter Pence (wrist). With Pence landing on the DL on Friday and Gregor Blanco out with a concussion, the door is open for Maxwell to continue seeing regular starts. He's just 4-for-23 so far this month but two of those hits have left the yard.

Maxwell is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds, according to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News.

Maxwell has started every game but one in right field since Apr. 21, but his days of regular playing time have come to a close with Hunter Pence back on the major league roster. Maxwell, who has three home runs and 16 RBI in 33 games this season, figures to start primarily against left-handed pitchers moving forward.

Maxwell is off to a good start in this series going 4-for-10 with two runs scored and three RBI. Maxwell has broken out for the Giants, but it's just a matter of time before Hunter Pence joins the team from his rehab assignment and steals playing time away from Maxwell, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Maxwell went 2-for-3 and snatched two RBI in the 6-0 win over Miami Friday.

Maxwell is having a breakout season with the Giants and he's a sneaky option if he can continue to get playing time. It remains to be seen what Bochy will do when Hunter Pence returns from injury, but it'll be tough for him to pull Maxwell out of his lineup.

Maxwell is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

Maxwell has assumed the lion's share of the duties in right field for the Giants with Hunter Pence (forearm) unavailable, but he's begun to fizzle out from a promising start. He's recorded one hit over his last 15 at-bats, prompting manager Bruce Bochy to press the reset button. Maxwell will sit out Sunday in favor of Gregor Blanco.
