Nationals Designate Carlos Maldonado

The Nationals designated catcher Carlos Maldonado for assignment today, according to the team. Yunesky Maya, Joe Bisenius, and Ross Detwiler join the Nationals in related moves. 

Catchers Ivan Rodriguez, Wilson Ramos and Wil Nieves are all on the Nationals roster, so Maldonado batted just 12 times in the majors. In 228 minor league plate appearances this year, the 31-year-old hit .223/.293/.310, so he adds little to no offensive value. However, Maldonado has thrown out 30% of potential base stealers in his 15-year minor league career.
