Paul Maholm tore his ACL Friday night

Dodgers swingman (22 relief appearances, eight starts) Paul Maholm injured himself Friday night against the Cubs on the following play:

The news got worse Saturday for Maholm:

So, while it hasn't been officially said to be the case, we can assume Maholm's 2014 season is over.

The 32-year-old left-hander is 1-5 with a 4.84 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 34 strikeouts against 28 walks in 70 2/3 innings. So he's not having a good season at all, but there is at least moderate value in a guy who can make spot starts, serve as a long reliever or simply eat innings in trash time, as was the case Friday. With that in mind, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Dodgers swing a trade (Carlos Villanueva?) for someone who can fill that role.
