Reds signed LHP Paul Maholm to a minor league contract.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training where Maholm will compete for a spot in the Reds starting rotation. He had his 2014 season cut short after just 70 2/3 innings due to a torn ACL that required surgery in August. He's had a normal offseason and is expected to be ready for spring training.

Paul Maholm (knee) says he's feeling "great" after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee in August.

Maholm has had a usual offseason since December 1 with workouts and throwing, so he hasn't experienced any setbacks. However, it's unclear whether he'll be ready for the start of spring training. The veteran southpaw might have to settle for an incentive-laden deal.

Dodgers activated LHP Paul Maholm from the 60-day disabled list.

Maholm's season ended in early August due to a torn ACL. It's not clear whether the rehab will affect his availability for spring training. Maholm is a free agent this winter.

Dodgers transferred LHP Paul Maholm from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Carlos Frias. Maholm is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Dodgers placed LHP Paul Maholm on the 15-day disabled list with a torn ACL.

Maholm will miss the remainder of the 2014 season after being diagnosed with a torn ACL, an injury he sustained while awkwardly covering first base during a play on Friday. Los Angeles will transfer him to the 60-day disabled list whenever it needs an additional spot on the 40-man roster.

Paul Maholm will miss the remainder of the 2014 season after being diagnosed with a torn ACL.

Maholm sustained the injury while awkwardly stepping on first base as he was covering the bag during Friday's game. It's a tough break for the veteran southpaw and for the Dodgers, who may now be in the market for additional bullpen and rotation depth.

Paul Maholm was scheduled for an MRI after injuring his right knee Friday against the Cubs.

Maholm was injured awkwardly stepping on the bag as he went to cover first base. It sounds as though he's almost surely DL bound.

Filling in for Josh Beckett, Paul Maholm held the Padres scoreless for six innings on Saturday.

Maholm entered with a 5.18 ERA and he hadn't pitched more than 2 1/3 innings in an outing in two months, so of course he combined on a shutout of the Padres. He allowed just two hits, walked none and struck out four while throwing 65 pitches in his six innings. It's the first time since April 14, 2013 that he's escaped a start without allowing a run.

Paul Maholm is likely to start on Saturday against the Padres in place of the injured Josh Beckett (hip).

He's expected to take the ball unless he's needed relief on Thursday or Friday. Red Patterson will be on standby at Triple-A Albuquerque in case Maholm does have to pitch in relief over the next couple days. He can be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Paul Maholm was pummeled for 10 runs -- five earned -- on 11 hits over 3 2/3 innings Wednesday in a blowout loss to the Marlins.

It wasn't pretty. Maholm failed to strike out a batter, he walked three, and he was kicked all around the park for 11 hits. Two of those hits were home runs off the bats of Ed Lucas and Reed Johnson. Indeed, this was a Miami lineup batting Jeff Baker cleanup, Johnson No. 5, and started Jeff Mathis so Jarrod Saltalamacchia could have a day off. It's no certainty that the Dodgers will keep Maholm's 5.40 ERA and 1.73 ERA in the rotation, but if they do, he'll square off against the Mets in New York next week.

Paul Maholm gave up three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Giants on Friday.

Maholm helped the Dodgers' cause by breaking Brandon Belt's thumb, though we hope he wouldn't chalk that up as a positive. He's 1-3 with a 4.71 ERA, and the Dodgers would happily bounce him from the rotation if they could get healthy.

Paul Maholm put himself into the win column with seven innings of two-run ball Saturday against the Rockies.

The only extra-base hit against Maholm tonight was a routine fly that Matt Kemp lost in the twilight, giving Wilin Rosario a double. Maholm is likely looking at getting one more start before Clayton Kershaw rejoins the Dodgers rotation. That will probably result in Maholm getting demoted to the pen.

Paul Maholm was chased for five runs -- four earned -- over five innings Monday in a 7-0 loss to the Phillies.

The veteran southpaw surrendered eight hits and three walks while striking out only two. He also gave up a two-run homer to Ryan Howard, who, well, doesn't generally pound lefties. He'll make an exception for Mr. Maholm, who the Dodgers must tolerate in the rotation until Clayton Kershaw returns. Maholm (0-2, 5.60 ERA) welcomes the Rockies to Hollywood on Saturday.

Paul Maholm surrendered only one run on five hits over six innings of a no-decision against the Giants on Wednesday.

He whiffed two and walked three in his best start since August 28. The left-hander entered this game with an 8.10 ERA, but that was mostly because he got bombed by the Giants in his only other start of the year back on April 5. His rotation spot is safe until Clayton Kershaw comes back. Maholm will toe the Chavez Ravine rubber with his shiny new 4.97 ERA against Philadelphia next week.
Thu, Apr 17, 2014 01:28:00 AM

Paul Maholm was shelled for five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Giants.

Maholm yielded seven hits and issued two walks, throwing just 47 of his 80 pitches for strikes. The left-hander dealt with elbow soreness for much of spring and he was not sharp on Saturday at Dodger Stadium. Maholm probably won't be in the rotation for much longer.
