According to multiple reports, the Dodgers appear to have a deal in place with left-hander Paul Maholm. He already has a locker set up in the clubhouse at the team's spring training complex.
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.
