Already deep in starting rotation depth that contains several high-profile names, the Dodgers continue to stockpile pitching.
31-year old Paul Maholm will join the ranks of Los Angeles to the tune of a one-year, $1.5 million contract. The contract is a Major League deal and also includes a number of incentive bonuses.
Maholm will be entering his tenth season in Major League Baseball and spent the last season and a half with the Atlanta Braves. In 2013, a year in which he earned $6.5 million, Maholm pitched to a 10-11 record with a 4.41 ERA. He represents a low-cost addition to a rotation that already features Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, and Dan Haren. Ken Gurnick of MLB.com hearkens back to last year when the Dodgers had a huge surplus of starters, only to end up trading or releasing several of them shortly after the season began.
