Description: Royals outfielder Justin Maxwell has been recalled to take the place of injured Norichika Aoki and will jump right into the starting lineup batting sixth and playing right field.

Description: Royals newly acquired outfielder Justin Maxwell smacked a pinch-hit home run to put Kansas City ahead in the 12th inning.
Insight: Maxwell missed nearly two months this year with a broken hand and time with a concussion. He'll probably be in a platoon situation for the remainder of the season which will limit any fantasy value, but he does own a career .827 OPS versus left-handers.

Description: Astros center fielder Justin Maxwell has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion.

Description: Houston center fielder Justin Maxwell (hand) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday, according to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.
Insight: Maxwell suffered a broken left hand in the last week of April. He took 20 swings in the cage Thursday and should be back in early June. He'll return to a .234 average, one homer and 22 strikeouts in 77 at-bats.
 
5/7/2013 5:54:00 PM
Description: Houston center fielder Justin Maxwell (hand) could begin light work with a bat in 7-10 days, according to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle.

Description: Houston center fielder Justin Maxwell will need 4-to-6 weeks to recover from his broken hand. SOURCE: Brian McTaggart, MLB.com
Insight: That's about the usual recovery period for an injury like this. The Astros will turn to Triple-A callup Robbie Grossman in center field until Maxwell is ready to return.
 
4/24/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Astros center fielder Justin Maxwell has been placed on the disabled list with a broken left hand.
Insight: Maxwell was struggling with the strikeout - 22 in 77 at-bats. Houston will bring up Robbie Grossman, but likely will use Rick Ankiel in center.
 
3/31/2013 11:09:00 PM
Description: Astros center fielder Justin Maxwell had a pair of triples, a walk and two RBIs Sunday in the season opener against the Rangers.
Insight: Maxwell has some pop (18 HRs in 2012) and speed (nine steals), but he struck out 114 times and hit .229 last season. Still, if anyone on this team has job security, it's him.
 
9/25/2012 10:41:00 AM
Description: Houston outfielder Justin Maxwell is 5-for-8 (.625) against Cardinals lefty Jaime Garcia with four extra base hits and a 2.102 OPS.
Insight: It's a small sample size, but the numbers are too good to pass up. Maxwell has shown plenty of power with 17 homers in just 291 at-bats, but needs to work on his low batting average (.230).
