Analysis: Maldonado returns to the organization that drafted him in the 27th round in 2004. He hit .202 last season with eight homers and 21 RBIs. In 69 games behind the plate, Maldonado threw out about 35 percent of base-stealers, which was sixth in the majors. The 30-year-old Maldonado made his debut with the Brewers in 2011, serving most of that time as the backup to Jonathan Lucroy until Lucroy was dealt by the rebuilding Brewers last summer to Texas.
