Royals reportedly sign Martin Maldonado to one-year deal

Martin Maldonado

The Kansas City Royals have their catcher for the 2019 season.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Royals have agreed to terms with catcher Martin Maldonado on a one-year, $2.5 million deal, where he will serve as the starting catcher as Salvador Perez recovers from Tommy John surgery.

Maldonado only hit .225 last season, but is regarded as a quality defensive catcher who can handle a pitching staff. He will almost certainly be disappointed with how his offseason has gone in light of what he reportedly turned down at the start of it.
