Padres OF Maybin has no structural damage in knee

Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin underwent an MRI exam
Tuesday that showed no structural damage in his right knee.

San Diego manager Bud Black said the team doesn’t have complete
results of the examination, but he added Maybin was available as a
pinch-hitter against the Atlanta Braves.

Maybin, who was acquired in a November trade with the Florida
Marlins, did not play in the Padres’ previous three games. He was
diagnosed with patellar tendinitis after an early departure May 16
in a win at Arizona.

Blake Tekotte started his fourth straight game in Maybin’s spot
Tuesday night.

In his last 15 games, Maybin hit .308 to raise his batting
average to .254. He has five homers, 15 RBIs and seven stolen bases
this season.
