In his illustrious thirteen-12 months MLB tenure, Martin Maldonado has donned the jerseys of numerous teams,
but considering affiliating with the Houston Astros in 2019, the 37-12 months-antique Puerto Rican player has showcased a number of his height offensive figures.
notwithstanding his surprising profession, Maldonado's batting average stays at .207. The 2023 season noticed him accomplishing a slashline of .191/.258/.348 across 116 games with the Astros
despite the fact that, the veteran made a mark via hitting 15 home runs and tallying 36 RBIs, mirroring his past pinnacle performances.
The waters have been stirred while Jon Heyman, a outstanding MLB analyst, crafted an fascinating post highlighting the elite catchers from the top 8 postseason teams.
He hinted at the underlying method, suggesting teams to "get a stud catcher." He noted Maldonado, along side Yainer Diaz, as contributing to the Astros' triumphs.
As Jon Heyman opined, "Postseason catchers left: Dodgers - Smith, Arizona - Moreno, Atlanta - Murphy/d’Arnaud, Philly - Realmuto, Texas - Heim, Baltimore - Rutschman, Houston - Maldonado/Diaz,
Minnesota - Jeffers. All 8 teams have above common catching conditions." however, the MLB community did now not share Heyman's enthusiasm regarding Maldonado's contribution.
