Dodgers pitcher Paul Maholm injured his right knee covering first base in the seventh inning of Friday night’s game against the Cubs. An MRI has revealed that the lefty has a torn ACL, the Dodgers reported via Twitter. Maholm will visit Dr. Neal ElAttrache to decide how to proceed. Surgery is, obviously, an option. Regardless of what he chooses, however, his season has ended.
Maholm, 32, has made eight starts and 22 relief appearances for the Dodgers this season, posting a 4.84 ERA with a 34/28 K/BB ratio in 70 2/3 innings. The Dodgers signed him to a one-year, $1.5 million contract back in February.
Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times suggests that the Dodgers will be on the lookout for starting and relief pitching via waivers throughout the month of August.
