Maholm originally sprained the wrist while batting, but it started acting up on him again in the fourth inning of the loss. He gave up seven runs in three-plus innings, but Gonzalez iterated that Maholm should be fine.
"I know they X-rayed him and [found] nothing," Gonzalez said. "Everything came back negative. So, I think he's waiting to see the White Sox doctor [Saturday night] and see what they say. If we feel it's something more than that, we'll send him to our guys at home… but right now, we're just waiting."
