Martin Maldonado not on a set rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014)  Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado caught Wily Peralta in his season debut Saturday, continuing the pairing that the team rode throughout the second half of last season. Still, manager Ron Roenicke made a point of telling MLB.com he does not expect to stick with a strict battery featuring those two, preferring to rest Jonathan Lucroy without being concerned about the starting pitcher for that game.

Maldonado was hitless through his first five at-bats Saturday, as the game went into extra innings. He hit just .169/236/.284 in 67 games a year ago. 


Martin Maldonado comes to camp slimmer


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado has reported to camp 26 pounds lighter, according to MLB.com. 

Maldonado said he focused on eating right during the offseason, which led to the weight loss. He added that he's in the best shape of his life. Maldonado hit .169/.236/.284 in 183 at-bats last season. Maldonado will compete to backup Jonathan Lucroy.


Martin Maldonado pops one out Friday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2013) Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado went deep Friday during a 4-3 loss at Cincinnati. Maldonado hit his third HR of the season in the eighth inning off starter Bronson Arroyo. 

The backstop finished 1 for 4 with two RBI. He added his second RBI of the game in the sixth inning when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Maldonado is batting .172 for the season. 

Maldonado, not an everyday player, has hits in his last two games. That said, he's still just 2 for 12 (.167) in June over six games and three starts. He does have two homers and three RBI for the month to this point. 


Brewers getting comfortable with Martin Maldonado at first?


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2013) The Brewers will start Martin Maldonado at first base for the third straight game Tuesday against Pittsburgh, the club announced.

Maldonado has now started at first in four of the past six games. Tuesday marks his seventh start at the position in 2013. Maldonado has been iffy defensively, but Alex Gonzalez's struggles at the plate (.459 OPS) have made the move a necessity for Milwaukee. Maldonado is hitting .214/.267/.405 and a robust .250/.318/.550 in his last six games.


Brewers backup catcher connects for HR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2013) Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado connected for his first home run of the season Saturday against the Dodgers. Maldonado had a two-run homer off Matt Guerrier.

Maldonado, who has made five starts in 22 games, is batting .200 (7 for 35) with three doubles and six RBI in 11 games.


Martin Maldonado drives in three vs. Cubs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2013) Brewers utility man Martin Maldonado earned the start at first base and enjoyed a big day at the plate during Monday's series opener against the Cubs.

Maldonado launched a bases-clearing double in the first inning and singled in the fifth and seventh. He finished 3 for 5 with three RBI in a 7-4 victory. The 25-year-old is hitting .286/.333/.429 with a home run and four RBI though his first 14 at-bats.

Martin Maldonado looking good at first base


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/8/2013) With the Brewers being decimated by injuries, the latest player taking a stab at first base is backup catcher Martin Maldonado, who played four games at the position last year. Maldonado made a nice scoop on a groundout throw late in Monday's game before a ninth-inning error, and may have bought himself a little more playing time with an overall solid defensive effort. 

It doesn't hurt that Maldonado also hit a serviceable .266 with eight home runs in 233 at-bats last year, pressed into service when Jonathan Lucroy went down with a broken hand. With Jean Segura out indefinitely, the Brewers have to use Alex Gonzalez and Yuniesky Betancourt at short and third, leaving first base open for the taking. 

Maldonado is a catcher who could be getting regular at-bats at first base, at least for as long as Segura is out. And if he continues to hit, he may work his way into at-bats even after Segura comes back. This is deep NL-only territory, but Maldonado represents one of those catcher-as-a-first-baseman moves that could pay off in daily leagues and the short-term. 


Martin Maldonado can earn more playing time


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2013) Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado made his first start of the season Wednesday night against the Rockies with Wily Peralta on the mound.

Manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com that he does not know how much he will play the 26-year-old going forward behind starter Jonathan Lucroy.

"I do [have a ratio] in mind, but it changes all the time, and their production helps that decision," manager Ron Roenicke said. "If Maldy is swinging the bat like he was last year, he's going to play more than once every week or once every five days. He does such a good job, defensively, that if he's swinging the bat, he's going to be in there more."

Maldonado, who hit eight homers with 30 RBI in 233 at-bats last season, has been made no promises about playing time.

"That's fine with me," he said. "Like I always say, I come here every day expecting to play, and when it doesn't happen, you change."

Maldonado homers in Colorado


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2012) Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado went deep for the seventh time this season on Tuesday during a loss at Colorado. Maldonado mashed a solo shot in the fifth inning off starter Tyler Chatwood. He finished the game 2 for 4 and added an RBI double and two runs scored. He is now batting .283 on the season.
