Maldonado is not in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup against the A's, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Maldonado went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Monday's win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop has put together a solid week -- by his standards -- with a .259 batting average and three homers over his last seven contests. His overall numbers leave much to be desired (.227/.288/.385), but Maldonado's career-high 14 homers puts him on the map in two-catcher leagues.

Maldonado went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in Monday's 3-1 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to the strong offensive showing, Maldonado called a great game behind the plate, aiding Angels starter Andrew Heaney to a career-high 10 strikeouts on the night. The three base knocks were the greater takeaway from a fantasy perspective, however, as Maldonado was able to end a four-game slide where he had gone 0-for-11. The backstop is still slashing an unremarkable .188/.258/.286, but his standing as the Angels' top catching option seems to be secure.
