MLB notebook: Dodgers' Maholm out for season with torn ACL

| 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.
