Cameron Maybin, who announced his retirement in January 2022 after a 15-year major league career, joined the YES Network a month later as a New York Yankees analyst.
The YES Network, the most-watched regional sports network in the country 17 of the last 19 years, is the exclusive regional television home of the 27-time World Champion New York Yankees, the Brooklyn Nets, 2021 MLS Cup Champions New York City FC and WNBA's New York Liberty. The network has won 134 New York Emmy Awards since its 2002 launch.
A native of Asheville, N.C., Maybin was selected out of high school by the Detroit Tigers with the 10th overall pick in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft. Heading into that draft, he was named most promising outfielder and the third-best hitting prospect overall by Baseball America. He made his debut for the Tigers on Aug. 17, 2007, at the age of 20.
Maybin played for 10 teams throughout his MLB career - the Tigers (three times), Marlins (twice), Padres, Braves, Angels, Astros, Mariners, Yankees, Cubs and Mets. He was a member of the 2017 World Series champion Houston Astros.
Maybin batted .254 with 72 homers and 354 RBI in his major league career. The speedy outfielder was also adept on the basepaths, racking up 187 career stolen bases. He had a productive stint with the Yankees in 2019, batting .285 with 11 home runs and an .858 OPS in 82 games with the team. He most notably enjoyed a red-hot stretch during June of that season in which he homered in four straight games.
