Bruce Maxwell: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

A's GM David Forst said earlier in the week that Maxwell remains the team's primary catcher despite his legal issues, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "We're expecting Bruce to ready to go the first day of spring training and to be with us," Forst said. "I'm not getting involved in the legal side of this, but no one has said anything to me that makes me believe he won't be ready to go."

2017

Maxwell never overwhelmed scouts with his performance at the plate during his time in the minor leagues, but the German-born catcher broke out at the plate in his first taste of the Triple-A level. During his time in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, the 25-year-old slashed .321/.393/.539 to go with 10 home runs and 41 runs batted in. Thanks to this strong showing, Maxwell ended up being the player called up when the Athletics were short on catchers at the major league level, and he certainly made the most of his opportunity. In 92 at-bats, he batted .283 with six doubles, a home run and 14 RBI. He doesn't have much prospect shine, but results carry a lot of weight, which should allow the backstop to compete for a roster spot in spring training. That being said, looking at his historical numbers at the plate and his ridiculously high .373 BABIP, it's hard to believe that his 2016 campaign was anything more than an incredibly well-timed outlier.
