Pirates/MLB Videos

Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014, 7:48 p.m.

Former Pirates left-hander Paul Maholm was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Dodgers because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament 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 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.

Mariners' Hart on DL

The Mariners placed designated hitter Corey Hart on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised right knee. He's batting .203 with five homers in 58 games this year.

Foot injury sidelines Ross

The Red Sox put catcher David Ross on the 15-day disabled list because of a right foot injury. Boston also activated newly acquired right-hander Joe Kelly before Saturday's game against the Yankees.

Van Wieren dies at 69

Pete Van Wieren, the bespectacled broadcaster who was part of the landmark team that carried Braves games throughout the nation on Ted Turner's “SuperStation,” died Saturday after a battle with cancer, the team said. He was 69.
