Financial terms were not announced but San Diego media reported the deal was worth $25 million for five years with a $7 million option year.

Maybin, 24, hit .264 with 40 runs batted in and stole a career-high 40 bases last season.

He led the Padres in steals, runs scored (82) and triples (eight) with his stolen base total equalling the fourth best in the majors.
