Maholm was excellent for the Braves in the second half last season after coming over in a trade from the Cubs and as of June 1 he had a very similar 3.69 ERA this season, but he coughed up 16 runs in his last three starts as his ERA ballooned to 4.41.
Alex Wood will start in Maholm’s place Thursday and the Braves are also expected to get Brandon Beachy back from Tommy John elbow surgery soon.
