When Padres general manager Josh Byrnes discovered earlier this week that outfielder Cameron Maybin had a ruptured left biceps tendon, he had but one thought. San Diego Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin met with doctors Thursday and opted against surgery for his ruptured left biceps tendon, GM Kevin Towers told multiple media outlets. Maybin suffered the injury making a diving catch Sunday in a game against the Dodgers. The original timeline, after an MRI on Monday, was two to three months and possibly longer if Maybin opted for surgery. Maybin, who missed all but 14 games in 2013 due to injuries, robbed the Dodgers' Juan Uribe of extra bases in the fourth inning of a game in Glendale, racing from center to right for a catch. "But the strong consensus was no surgery." His spot in the lineup likely will be taken by Will Venable, who is playing center field and batting leadoff against the San Francisco Giants on Monday.
