BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Any team with an injured catcher will have the Nats on speed dial, as Carlos Maldonado is yet another viable veteran backstop knocking around in the organization.
2011 Not that that depth doesn't make journeymen like Carlos Maldonado an unavoidable evil in any organization.
2007 With Chris Coste having made it to the major leagues and found a certain amount of success, players such as Carlos Maldonado have renewed hope. Like Coste, Maldonado didn`t start playing professionally until he was 23. While he hasn`t raked in the minors the way Coste did, he had a pretty decent year at Indianapolis in 2006. In the midst of his prime years now, he`d be as good a backup catcher as any for about half the teams in the majors.
