PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — As the disappointment has diminished, Cameron Maybin can now marvel at his seemingly never-ending bad luck.
A year ago, the San Diego Padres center fielder tore the left posterior cruciate ligament, a rare knee injury. When he returned, he hurt his wrist and needed surgery again, ending his season after 13 games.
Maybin stood in front of his locker Monday and said doctors told him they knew of only one other professional baseball player, a minor-leaguer, to tear a biceps. While it was determined he wouldn't need surgery, he's still expected to miss four to six weeks.
When asked if he feels snakebit, Maybin said, "A little bit, man."
