According to a report from the Associated Press, catcher Bruce Maxwell, who was with the Oakland Athletics earlier this season before being sent down to Triple-A Nashville on June 7, has been sentenced in an Arizona court to two-years’ probation.
Maxwell’s sentencing on Monday came nearly three months after he pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge in a gun-related incident. Police say Maxwell pointed a handgun at a woman who had delivered food to his Scottsdale, Ariz., home in October.
According to court documents, police said that Maxwell lowered the gun once the woman explained why she was there. She then gave him the food and left.
Maxwell missed a four-game series in Toronto in May because he could not cross the border while awaiting sentencing in Arizona. While he was with the A’s, Maxwell hit .182 with one home run and six RBIs in 18 games of action as the backup to offseason acquisition Jonathan Lucroy.
With Nashville, Maxwell has hit .184 in 15 games, with four RBIs and six walks to 19 strikeouts.
