Martin Maldonado Targeting Friday For Return

Houston Astros catcher Martin Maldonado (thumb) hopes to return to the diamond by Friday. The veteran catcher took a foul tip off his thumb and is dealing with some swelling after aggravating it later in the game. If this was the regular season, Maldonado certainly could play through the injury. But the team is taking the cautious approach with Opening Day still weeks away. Maldonado carries plenty of on-field leadership and is strong when it comes to handling a pitching staff. But, at this time, has very little value offensively heading into fantasy drafts.

Martin Maldonado Has Sore Thumb

Houston Astros catcher Martin Maldonado (thumb) took a foul tip off his thumb in the last few days and was scratched from the Grapefruit League game on Tuesday as a precaution. Maldonado should be just fine for Opening Day. The 33-year-old from Puerto Rico will be Houston's primary catcher with Robinson Chirinos out of the picture. He's more of a defense-first backstop, though, making him only attractive in deep two-catcher leagues or AL-only formats. Maldonado hit just .213/.293/.378 with 12 home runs and 27 RBI in 333 at-bats in 2019.

Martin Maldonado Returns To Astros

The Houston Astros re-signed catcher Martin Maldonado to a two-year, $7 million deal on Friday, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deal. The defensive whiz played in just 27 games for the Astros last year after being acquired from the Cubs. He's certainly a better real-life player than a fantasy one, as he hit just .213/.293/.378 with 12 home runs, 46 runs and 27 RBI in 101 games with the Royals, Cubs and Astros. Maldonado should be the primary catcher in Houston next season, and he will share time with Garrett Stubbs. Maldonado is more of a low-end backstop in two-catcher leagues because of his defense-first profile.
