Should the Angels Make a Play for Derek Norris?

After the Washington Nationals signed Matt Wieters earlier this week, the rumblings began about the Nats shopping Derek Norris, who they had acquired earlier this offseason to replace Wilson Ramos as their starting catcher. So that begs the question: Should the Angels make a play for Norris? There’s no question that Norris would be an upgrade over both Carlos Perez and Martin...

MLB spring training 2017: Carlos Perez & Martin Maldonado are the Angels’ defense-first backstop duo

Pitchers and catchers report to Tempe, Arizona tomorrow, and while we’ve discussed the former quite a bit, we’ve been way more quiet on the latter. Catchers are important, too, right? Right. So let’s take a quick look at what we’re working with here. One of the bigger threads that fans followed throughout the offseason was “Where will free agent catcher Matt Wieters end...

Maldonado vs Perez

The Angels were able to make a switch behind the plate early in the offseason, Jett Bandy left Anaheim and Martin Maldonado came to the Big A, now battling for the starting spot against Carlos Perez. The Angels have been widely know as the team to seek offense over defense. True defense wins games, but teams need to score in order to win. Perez has not played in over 100 games in...

Carter, Maldonado lead the way as Brewers rout Kansas City

Maldonado’s Future with the Brewers

Martin Maldonado made his debut in Milwaukee in 2011 and has been the Brewers’ backup catcher since broke into the big leagues. He hasn’t started more than 66 games in a season; however, since Jonathan Lucroy blossomed into one of the game’s best catchers during his tenure, it’s understandable that Maldonado has had a difficult time earning playing time. To be fair, though...

Brewers catcher Maldonado pitches in during loss to Cardinals

Putting a position player in to pitch is usually a last resort move for a manager, but desperate times call for desperate managers. The Milwaukee Brewers got what they couldn't afford Wednesday afternoon -- a short outing from starting pitcher Matt Garza. Two straight extra-inning games left an already taxed bullpen out of options. Down 9-3 in the eighth inning, Brewers manager Ron...

Brewers Backup Catcher Martin Maldonado Hits Cover Off Of Baseball (GIF)

It’d be easy to assume that if a baseball was hit so hard its cover tore off, it was probably headed for home run territory. In Friday night’s game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Pittsburgh Pirates, however, Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado tore the cover off a baseball with what appeared to be a pretty routine swing that resulted in a ground ball toward third base...

Brewers' Maldonado literally knocks cover off baseball

The expression "hitting the cover off the baseball" is often tossed around, but Milwaukee Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado actually did just that Friday night, on a weak grounder to third base nonetheless. With one out in the sixth inning and Mark Reynolds on second base, Charlie Morton got Maldonado to hit one on the ground to third baseman Pedro Alvarez. It was clear something...

WATCH: Brewers C literally hits cover off the ball

Announcers like to say that guys “hit the cover off the ball” all the time, but how often is that literally what happened? Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado did just that against Charlie Morton and the Pirates. While he didn’t exactly hit it hard — he pounded it into the ground — the ball fell apart as it reached poor Pedro Alvarez, who had to try to throw a ball...
