Maxwell mostly struggled at the plate in 2017 and he was arrested on an assault charge in the offseason, but his standing on the team seems largely unaffected. He appears in line to open the season on the strong side of a catching platoon barring any discipline from the league or further off-the-field issues, starting against nearly all opposing right-handed pitchers while Josh Phegley or Dustin Garneau handle the lefties. The catcher position is so poor that even a platoon bat in an extreme pitcher's park is highly relevant. Maxwell walked at a great 12.3 percent clip last season, but even so, managed just a .296 wOBA and 84 wRC+. He struck out in one quarter of his plate appearances and the splash of home-run power that he showed at Triple-A in 2016 was completely absent although Maxwell did have a respectable 35.2 percent hard-hit rate.

  2. Bruce Maxwell 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Maxwell never overwhelmed scouts with his performance at the plate during his time in the minor leagues, but the German-born catcher broke out at the plate in his first taste of the Triple-A level. During his time in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, the 25-year-old slashed .321/.393/.539 to go with 10 home runs and 41 runs batted in. Thanks to this strong showing, Maxwell ended up being the player called up when the Athletics were short on catchers at the major league level, and he certainly made the most of his opportunity. In 92 at-bats, he batted .283 with six doubles, a home run and 14 RBI. He doesn't have much prospect shine, but results carry a lot of weight, which should allow the backstop to compete for a roster spot in spring training. That being said, looking at his historical numbers at the plate and his ridiculously high .373 BABIP, it's hard to believe that his 2016 campaign was anything more than an incredibly well-timed outlier.
