Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reported yesterday that the Dodgers “have been very aggressive in their pursuit of pitching” and today Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette quotes “an industry source” who says they’re interested in Pirates left-hander Paul Maholm.
General manager Neal Huntington indicated previously that the Pirates don’t plan to be very active at the trading deadline and Maholm is under contract for $5.75 million next season with a $9.75 million option or $750,000 buyout for 2012.
His win totals are underwhelming in large part because his teammates are always so horrible, but Maholm has a 4.05 ERA in 515 inning during the past three seasons and is still just 28 years old.
