MARTIN MALDONADO RUMORS

Maldonado provides offense with jolt against Rays ace Price

Baseball can be quite the puzzling game, rarely following any kind of patter that makes sense. If it did, the Milwaukee Brewers and their struggling offense would have been shut down by Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price. Instead, the Brewers used a four-RBI day from backup catcher Martin Maldonado to come away with a 5-0 victory over one of the best pitchers in baseball and temporarily...

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...

WATCH: Brewers Martin Maldonado tears the cover off the ball, literally

One of the oldest expressions in baseball is “TEAR THE COVER OFF THE BALL!”  The purist might think it originated in the 19th century when baseballs were literally sewn together to play.  More recently, you might invoke memories of The Natural, and Roy Hobbs doing as much in his debut at bat for the New York Knights.  Now, add Milwaukee Brewers Martin Maldonado to the lore...

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...
