Maybin, 28, hit .267, slugged 10 home runs and stole 23 bases for the Braves in 2015. He was drafted by the Tigers in 2005 and made his major league debut for the team in 2007. He was traded from Detroit to the Florida Marlins, who eventually dealt him to the San Diego Padres. The Padres sent Maybin to the Braves at the start of the 2015 season.
The Tigers will send back minor league pitchers Ian Krol and Gabe Speier.
Already this offseason, the Braves have shipped out shortstop Andrelton Simmons, re-signed catcher A.J. Pierzynski, and entertained trade possibilities for pitcher Shelby Miller and first baseman Freddie Freeman.
