UPDATE: The Dodgers have indeed agreed to a one-year contract with Maholm, the team announced. He will earn $1.5 million with significant incentives.

Maholm, 31, went 10-11 with a 4.41 ERA (88 ERA+) in 153 innings and 26 starts with the Braves last season. He also missed time with wrist and elbow problems. Maholm has been the quintessential league average workhorse in recent years.
The Dodgers were looking to add a veteran fifth starter behind Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dan Haren. They had interest in Bronson Arroyo before he signed with the Diamondbacks.
