Outfielder Cameron Maybin, in camp with the Giants as a non-roster invitee, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol last Friday, according to ABC 15 News, citing a Scottsdale police report. Per the report, Maybin was arrested at 2:43am with a .127 blood-alcohol content, which is north of the legal limit of .08. Maybin was cooperative when arrested, officers noted within their report. Maybin has since appeared in multiple games for the Giants. The team issued a statement today indicating that it is “aware and monitoring the situation.”
The 31-year-old Maybin, signed to a minor league deal with an invitation to Major League Spring Training back in February, had hoped to secure a spot in a thin Giants outfield mix. Currently, San Francisco has Steven Duggar, Mac Williamson, Austin Slater, Chris Shaw and Rule 5 pick Drew Ferguson as options on the 40-man roster. Gerardo Parra, Craig Gentry, John Andreoli and Mike Gerber are among the Giants’ non-roster options, in addition to Maybin.
