Astros' Martin Maldonado placed on injured list on Wednesday

Houston Astros catcher Martin Maldonado has been placed on the injured list Wednesday afternoon.

What It Means:

According to general manager James Click, Maldonado and four of his teammates - Yordan Alvarez, Alex Bregman, Jose Altuve and Robel Garcia - were all placed on the injured list due to the league's health and safety protocols surrounding COVID-19. Jason Castro figures to see more reps as the starting catcher, and Garrett Stubbs has been recalled from the alternate site.

In 34 plate appearances this season, Maldonado has a .091 batting average with a .209 OPS and 2 runs.
