Paul Maholm

  1. The Rangers have checked in with free agent Paul Maholm

    Jan 15, 2014, 10:55 PM EDT

    Free agent lefty Paul Maholm has drawn a lot less interest than expected, perhaps due to a rough second half of the 2013 season. Maholm, now 31 years old, finished with a 4.41 ERA after back-to-back sub-3.70 ERA seasons with the Pirates in 2011 and the Cubs and Braves in 2012. One would think it…

  2. Orioles’ top priority is adding another starting pitcher

    The Orioles are still unsettled at closer and could use another bat for the designated hitter spot, but Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports hears that adding another starting pitcher is the club’s “primary focus” at this time. As we have heard throughout the winter, veteran right-hander A.J. Burnett is at the top of their list.…

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

    Robinson Cano

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  5. Braves leave Dan Uggla, Paul Maholm, and Scott Downs off playoff roster

    Oct 2, 2013, 2:16 PM EDT

    dan uggla getty

    As expected the Braves have left second baseman Dan Uggla off their NLDS roster, meaning they’d rather face the Dodgers without their highest-paid player. Uggla hit .179 this season and was completely helpless since returning from eye surgery, going 8-for-60 (.133) with 25 strikeouts. Along with Uggla the Braves also left off Paul Maholm, who…

  6. Carlos Gomez suspended, Brian McCann goes unpunished

    Sep 26, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Crols Gomez Brian McCann

    MLB apparently felt that Carlos Gomez‘s postgame Twitter apology wasn’t enough following his incident with the Braves last night, so they’ve suspended the Brewers center fielder for tonight’s game against the Mets. Gomez homered off Paul Maholm–continuing what has been a longtime quasi-feud–and took his sweet time going around the bases. He then started yelling…

  7. Carlos Gomez homers, gets ejected, never touches home plate

    Sep 25, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    The fireworks started early at the Brewers-Braves game in Atlanta on Wednesday, with a Carlos Gomez homer off Paul Maholm in the top of the first leading to a benches-clearing incident. Gomez and Maholm had a history, with Gomez batting .424 with two HBPs in 21 career plate appearances against the lefty. After his long…

  8. Brandon Beachy’s season is over

    Sep 12, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Brandon Beachy

    All of us who are convinced that Matt Harvey should go get Tommy John surgery yesterday should probably remind ourselves that it’s not ALWAYS a routine thing. Take Brandon Beachy who hasn’t been able to get right this year: Beachy said today he’s not where he wants to be. Had played some catch earlier this…

  9. Paul Maholm scratched from next start with elbow injury

    Braves left-hander Paul Maholm has been scratched from his scheduled weekend start and will instead fly back to Atlanta to undergo an MRI exam on his elbow, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com. David Hale will start in place of Maholm, who spent a month on the disabled list with a wrist injury and has…

    Evan Gattis was the Braves’ only source of offense this afternoon against Cole Hamels in the series finale in Philadelphia. The Braves scored two runs on two hits, both Gattis solo home runs — one in the second inning, and one in the seventh, giving him 18 on the season. The Phillies scored twice in…

  11. No structural damage found in Brandon Beachy’s elbow

    Aug 27, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Brandon Beachy

    Some good news for the Braves: no structural damage was found in Brandon Beachy‘s elbow when he went to visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday. “He confirmed what I’ve been hoping,” Beachy told Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He just thought it was inflamed, a lot of fluid in there. The ligament is intact…

  12. Report: Braves claimed Kyle Lohse earlier this month

    Aug 24, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse

    It’s old news that right-hander Kyle Lohse was claimed on waivers and then pulled back without a trade, but it wasn’t known who tried to pluck him away from the Brewers. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal revealed today that it was the Braves who made the claim. Lohse would have been pretty much the perfect replacement for…

  13. Brandon Beachy to see Dr. James Andrews

    Aug 22, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Brandon Beachy

    As if the Braves hadn’t gotten enough bad news in the last day, Brandon Beachy, who returned from Tommy John surgery last month, will see Dr. James Andrews next week after experiencing a setback. According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Beachy underwent an MRI on Wednesday, the results of which the Braves…

  14. Paul Maholm cleared for rehab assignment

    paul maholm getty

    David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Braves left-hander Paul Maholm has been cleared to make his first minor league rehab start on Saturday with Low-A Rome. He’s expected to throw about 90 pitches over six innings and may be allowed to rejoin the Atlanta starting rotation immediately after if the outing goes smoothly.…

  15. Paul Maholm throws simulated game, nearing rehab assignment

    Paul Maholm Getty

    The first-place Braves haven’t missed Paul Maholm much since he landed on the disabled list last month with a bruised left wrist, but he’s on track to rejoin the starting rotation soon. Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that Maholm made it through a simulated game this afternoon with no issues. The next step will be…

  16. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  17. Are the Braves OK without Tim Hudson?

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    Braves logo-thumb-113x101-1733

    Tim Hudson was, quite obviously, placed on the disabled list this morning. Paul Maholm is getting DL’d too. With their two eldest starting pitchers going down, do the Braves need some rotation help? Not necessarily. Brandon Beachy is done with his rehab assignment and is coming back, so he’ll fill a slot. Alex Wood, who…

  18. Paul Maholm goes on disabled list with wrist injury

    Jul 22, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Paul Maholm exited Sunday’s start in the fourth inning with a left wrist injury and the Braves have placed him on the disabled list with what they’re calling a contusion. 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…

  19. Paul Maholm exits start with sprained left wrist

    Jul 20, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Paul Maholm had an ugly afternoon against the White Sox, surrendering a first-pitch grand slam to Alex Rios in the third inning, then exiting with an arm injury in the fourth inning after putting the first two batters he faced on base. David O’Brien points out that Maholm pointed to his lower left arm before…

  20. Brandon Beachy will not start on Tuesday, after all

    Jun 14, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Brandon Beachy Getty

    The Braves had been internally debating for a while what to do when Brandon Beachy is activated from the disabled list. Would they use the 26-man rule to use him for Tuesday’s double-header against the Mets, and then figure it out in a week? Would they move Kris Medlen to the bullpen? Or attempt to…

  21. Braves face tough decision when Brandon Beachy returns

    Jun 9, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    brandon beachy ap

    Brandon Beachy hasn’t pitched since June 16 last season. He felt soreness in his right elbow and subsequently underwent Tommy John surgery, ending his season and significantly cutting into his 2013 hopes. Nearly a full year later, though, Beachy is nearing a return. He has made two rehab starts with Triple-A Gwinnett spanning nine innings,…

  22. Arodys Vizcaino gets more surgery, done for season

    May 28, 2013, 10:49 PM EDT

    vizcaino getty

    Cubs prospect Arodys Vizcaino won’t pitch in 2013. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports that the 22-year-old underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow this week to clear out a calcium buildup and has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2013 campaign. Vizcaino had Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last March and…

  23. Danny Espinosa has been playing with a broken wrist since April

    May 24, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Danny Espinosa, Allen Craig

    Since that series against the Braves, specifically. The one in which he said he wasn’t impressed by them. Guess he meant it, because one of the Braves pitchers broke his friggin’ wrist and he apparently didn’t take notice of it: Source: #Nats 2b Danny Espinosa‘s right wrist was broken when Paul Maholm hit him with…

  24. The Braves are regressing badly

    May 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    The Braves were 12-1 after their victory over the Royals on April 16. They had just rattled off ten consecutive wins, due to an incredibly potent offense and unhittable pitching. The Braves hit three or more home runs in three of their first five games with Justin Upton hitting one just about every night. In…

  25. Pirates end Paul Maholm’s scoreless inning streak

    Apr 20, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Paul Maholm entered tonight’s start against the Pirates with a 0.00 ERA and 20.1 consecutive scoreless innings over three starts. The lefty took his streak into the sixth inning until it was finally snapped on an Andrew McCutchen RBI double. Gaby Sanchez followed it up with a two-run home run to give the Pirates a…
