Paul Maholm, When In Rome

Paul Maholm made his first rehab start in the Rome Braves organization which is the single A Braves team.  Much has been said about his return to the rotation and what could happen.  Some believe the Braves will go to a 6 man rotation, others feel Brandon Beachy or Kris Medlen will go into the bullpen and another scenario would be Maholm going into the pen.

In his first rehab start Maholm exited to a huge round of applause from the Rome Braves fans.  His line for the evening was 5.2IP, 1R, 4H, 0BB, 6K (83 Pitches).

Though he pitched well, I believe they give him another rehab start either in Rome again or Gwinnett.  He will probably be ready to return to Atlanta by next weekend.

With injuries coming and going, this is a positive for Braves fans.
