RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Maldonado saw extended playing time this season due to some injury woes for regular starter Jonathan Lucroy, but Maldonado was largely unremarkable. In 79 games, the backstop slashed .210/.282/.293 with four homers and 22 RBI. His strong suits are his glove and game-calling ability, which bodes well for his chances to stay on the 25-man roster despite his hitting woes. However, as long as Lucroy stays healthy, Maldonado will probably remain a backup in 2016.

2015

Maldonado worked as the backup behind starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy last season. Lucroy did not sit much, and Maldonado was limited to just 111 at-bats as a result, but he did post a respectable .707 OPS thanks to 11 walks and nine extra-base hits. Maldonado is a quality defensive catcher and under team control for several more years, so it would likely take an injury for him not to open next season as the Brewers’ backup catcher once again.

2014

Maldonado is a valuable backup catcher thanks to his defense and game-calling abilities, but he struggled with the bat in 2013 while primarily seeing spot action with regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy healthy all season. Despite the struggles, Maldonado is young and cheap, so expect him to serve as the Brewers’ backup catcher again in 2014.

2013

Known primarily as a defensive catcher and average prospect while in the minors, Maldonado rounded out his game last season in the most unlikely of places - Milwaukee. Maldonado filled in admirably in Jonathan Lucroy's absence and proved to be a more-than-capable backup catcher when Lucroy returned, finishing the season with a .266 batting average and eight home runs over 78 games. Maldonado will enter 2013 with the same backup job, but he will play more than your regular reserve catcher.

2012

Maldonado is essentially the Brewers' third or fourth catcher, and will likely serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Nashville in 2012 with Jonathan Lucroy and George Kottaras in position to handle the big league staff.
