Dillon Sean Maples (born May 9, 1992) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career[edit]

Maples attended Pinecrest High School in Southern Pines, California. He was also on the USA Baseball Under 18 team in 2010. The Chicago Cubs selected Maples in the 14th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft.[1] He made his professional debut in 2012 with the Arizona League Cubs.[2] From 2013 to 2016 he pitched for the Boise Hawks, Kane County Cougars, Arizona League Cubs, Eugene Emeralds, South Bend Cubs and Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

Maples started 2017 with Myrtle Beach and was promoted to the Tennessee Smokies and Iowa Cubs during the season.[3][4] He has spent most of 2017-19 bouncing between Wrigley Field and Des Moines.

On September 14, 2019, Maples was ejected from the game in the ninth inning of a 14-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates for hitting two batters with pitches after warnings had been issued earlier in the game.
