The San Francisco Giants released veteran outfielder Cameron Maybin on Friday. He is released less than one week before the MLB season starts.

It is not clear at this time if he was released outright by the Giants, or he asked the team for his release. With about one week left before the start of the season, it is going to be tough for him to find another job quickly.

He was arrested for DUI during the middle of spring training. That didn’t help his cause.

Maybin will attempt to sign on with his eighth MLB team. He spent four seasons each with the San Diego Padres and the Florida/Miami Marlins franchise.

He also spent two seasons with the Detroit Tigers. He also played one-year each with the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Angels, Seattle Mariners, and the Houston Astros.

The 31-year-old Asheville, North Carolina native was part of the Astros 2017 World Series Championship.

Last season, he spent between the Marlins and the Mariners. He was traded by the Marlins to the Mariners for prospect Bryson Brigman and International bonus slot money on July 31st, 2018.

With the Marlins, he had a .251 batting average with three home runs and 20 RBIs in 99 games. He also had 12 doubles and one triple on 63 hits, while scoring 20 runs.

Following the trade to the Mariners, he had a .242 batting average with one home run and eight RBIs in 30 games. He also had two doubles and one triple on 22 hits, while scoring 12 runs.
