As Cameron Maybin steps closer to a Yankees' return, the outfielder has also reportedly reached a conclusion on a legal matter that dates back to Spring Training.
According to a report from TMZ Sports, Maybin was arrested in March on counts of DUI and other related charges. While the veteran was with the Giants in Spring Training, he was reportedly pulled over around 2:30 in the morning and subsequently failed sobriety tests issued by officers.
TMZ reports that Maybin pleaded guilty to his DUI charge earlier this month, in exchange for his other charges being dropped.
Maybin was placed on the injured list on June 23 after suffering a left calf strain while running the bases.
According to Aaron Boone, he will begin his minor-league rehab assignment on Tuesday night. He is scheduled to serve as the designated hitter and bat leadoff on Tuesday for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at Columbus.
The 32-year-old had been a very pleasant surprise in the Yankees outfield before landing on the IL. In 42 games, Maybin hit .314 with five home runs and 14 RBIs. He provided the Yankees with some much needed help in the outfield while Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton were both missing time with injuries.
