“We’ll see how he throws this weekend on the side and see what he needs after that,” Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “My thinking is he may need (to throw) some BP or a sim(ulated) game, or maybe even a couple of innings in a rehab start before we run him back out there to face live major league hitters.”
“I’m not a very good DL patient so I’m going to push it,” Maholm said. “But I also understand the team is playing well and I don’t want to go out there and not be 100 percent and have a setback. So my goal is going to be to get that rotation spot the next time around, but we’ll just have to see how it goes.”
Threw a bullpen today and look forward to being part of the fun again.
Had a great bullpen today and it was awesome to see Huddy back in the clubhouse. Lets keep
….And Mike Minor having some fun with Paul…
#Braves Maholm pitched 6 simulated innings. #Braves Fredi G said hasn’t decided how to work Maholm back in, still about 9-10 days before he’d pitch in real game. #Braves Fredi G said they could start Maholm and skip a starter for rest. Or possible 6-man rotation, though seems reluctant to do that @Rohlcopy Maholm faced Janish and Terdoslavich in six simulated innings on the field.
