Paul Maholm News Archive
Maholm was exceptional Saturday night hurling six-plus innings of scoreless baseball against the Padres. He allowed just two hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out four, but came away with a no-decision.
Maholm, who has been confirmed as Saturday's starter in place of Josh Beckett, hasn't piched more than 2.1 innings in an appearance since May 14, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Maholm will likely start in place of Josh Beckett (hip) on Saturday against the Padres, unless the lefty is needed as a relief pitcher either Thursday or Friday, in which case Red Patterson would likely get the nod, SB Nation reports.
