Since the All-Star break, Maldonado is hitting just .154/.195/.179 over 14 games.
Maldonado has seen his playing diminish in the second half in part due to his own struggles, and starter Jonathan Lucroy's hot-hitting. The Brewers are only carrying two catchers in September, but Maldonado is mainly reserved as the catcher for starter Wily Peralta. His struggles with the bat though make that about his only playing time opportunities other than occasionally as a defensive replacement for Lucroy at the end of a game.
