If the days of Cameron Maybin's Yankees are counted, he will come out like crazy.
The off-field companion, who could be sidelined when Aaron Judge returns from the injury list, scored for the third straight game, a personal best, in the Yankees' 3-0 shutout against the Rays at the stadium.
Maybin scored 3 goals against 3, scored two goals and now has several hits in five of his last eight games, bringing his batting average to.
"He's a very good player and another player who came here and who adapted, slapped, had an impact on the hall, then his performance speaks for himself between the lines, which he brought, "said manager Aaron Boone.

Nevertheless, it may not be enough for him to maintain a place in the lineup.

Whatever the case may be, it has been a precious piece, helping the Yankees to defeat the wounds of Judge and Stanton. He was acquired from the Indians on April 25 for financial reasons and reduced .299 / .375 / .467 with a .842 OPS in 38 games.
"One of the coolest and most positive teammates I've ever had," said Luke Voit. "He knows the situation and you do not know it. He raked recently. He is a great player. You can say that he has played in the big leagues for a long time. "
