Maine's college career has definitely not lacked interest, and Maine is fortunate to still be around to talk about it. He missed his freshman year in 2004 after he tore a ligament in his elbow that required TommyJohn surgery. On the long rehad road to recovery, Maine was in a car accident and suffered life-threatening injuries to his head that required him to wear a protective face plate while pitching a year ago. He was a promising pitcher coming out of high school, showing very good velocity on his fastball, of which is starting to regain its previous 89-93 form. He also can throw both a good curveball and a good changeup, and is expected to help carry the Miami Hurricanes this spring as their Friday ace. He is the younger brother of John Maine, a pitcher for the New York Mets.
