Maholm to miss final start
Paul Maholm will miss his final start this season on Friday due to left knee irritation. The club announced Daniel McCutchen will face the Marlins in his place.
Maholm was not available for comment after the decision was announced. Paul had surgery on his knee years ago and had problems with soreness during the ’09 season.
Maholm finishes the year 9-15 with a 5.10 ERA.
McCutchen will be making his ninth start this season and his first since August 25th. In his nine relief appearances since then he has thrown no more than 32 pitches so McCutchen will be limited on how deep he will be able to go.
