LOS ANGELES (AP) — Left-hander Paul Maholm has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament[ACL] in his right knee, which will sideline him for the rest of the season.
Maholm, 32, was injured during the seventh inning of Friday night’s 8-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs. He ran to cover first base after Scott Van Slyke made a diving stop on Arismendy Alcantata’s grounder behind the bag, then took the throw and hit the front of the bag with his right foot before tumbling over.
The 10-year veteran, who signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Dodgers in February, is 1-5 with a 4.84 ERA in 30 appearances — including eight starts.
