•  Outfielder Cameron Maybin, on the disabled list since June 12 with a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, could head from San Diego to the team's temporary Spring Training facility in Arizona this weekend to increase his baseball activities as he works toward getting in games. His work in Arizona will likely center on batting practice and outfield drills. He hasn't played in a game since June 9.
