JUPITER, Fla. -- While Don Mattingly's Marlins will enter the season with a mostly new-look outfield, one of the team's old faces is back.
Cameron Maybin, who spent the 2008-10 seasons with the Marlins after being acquired in the Miguel Cabrera trade with the Tigers, signed a one-year deal with the club and was in camp on Wednesday. Terms of Maybin's contract are not known at this time.
Marlins sign outfielder Cameron Maybin to a one-year deal
Maybin, who turns 31 in April, split last year between the Angels and Astros and stole 33 bases. He won a World Series title with Houston, hitting .286 across six postseason games. 
Miami enters the 2018 season with questions in the outfield following offseason trades of Giancarlo StantonChristian Yelich, and Marcell Ozuna. Utility player Derek Dietrich is the only outfielder who has been assured a starting job by Mattingly. With Dietrich in left, prospects Lewis BrinsonBraxton Lee and Magneuris Sierra will battle for spots in center and right. If they are not ready for big league action, Maybin provides insurance at all three outfield positions.
Maybin, a former first-round Draft pick of Detroit, compiled a slash line of .257/.323/.391 with 12 home runs over those three seasons in South Florida.
