Drafted in the 21st round (642nd overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2019 (signed for $5,000)
Maldonado has been a reliable bat in Florida’s lineup for four years, and after going undrafted as a junior in 2018, the 5-foot-10, 195-pound outfielder had a career-best season this spring. With a great understanding of the strike zone and an aggressive approach, Maldonado sacrificed a few walks for more power this season, with a career-low 8.4 percent walk rate through 52 games, but a career-best 10 home runs and a .335/.397/.581 slash line. Maldonado doesn’t have any standout tools, and after being used as a designated hitter with Florida will be limited to left field in pro ball, but his performance this spring could make him a money-saving senior sign who can handle himself with the bat.
