Maybin returned to Detroit in a trade and played for the Tigers in 2016. He spent last season with the New York Yankees, hitting .285 with 11 home runs and 32 RBIs in 82 games. His deal with the Tigers includes performance bonuses. To make room on the 40-man roster, Detroit put right-hander Michael Fulmer on the 60-day injured list.

UNDATED (AP) — News outlets in New Orleans are set to argue that they should have access to a hearing on the confidentiality of emails between Catholic officials and an NFL franchise. The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate and three TV stations will ask a judge today to let them cover a hearing on whether emails between the Archdiocese of New Orleans and New Orleans Saints executives should be released. Lawyers for victims of clergy sex abuse have told The Associated Press that the emails show how Saints executives helped the archdiocese with public relations damage control arising from the clergy abuse scandal.
