Padres reinstate Cameron Maybin from the restricted list, option Jace Peterson to El Paso, DFA Bobby LaFromboise.

— Dennis Lin (@dennistlin) August 20, 2014

Maybin was suspended for 25 games without pay on July 23 after failing a test for amphetamines.

He was batting just .247/.286/.368 in 185 plate appearances before the punishment came down and owns a disappointing .248/.307/.365 overall slash line in 1,371 plate appearances since joining San Diego in 2011.

The 27-year-old center fielder is owed a $7 million salary next season and an $8 million salary in 2016.
