Paul Maholm threw a bullpen session Sunday for the first time since going on the disabled list with a bruised left wrist. The Atlanta Braves' lefty was actually eligible to come off the DL Monday, but the club still projects him to need another week to 10 days, ajc.com reports.
Maholm threw about 30 pitches on Sunday and is scheduled for another 15-20 Tuesday to see how everything responds.
“Not being on the mound in two weeks, it’s more of the hand felt good and everything else was a little rough (command-wise),” Maholm said. “That’s something that throwing every other day is going to take care of. Everything else feels good. I’m taking it as a positive, be healthy and finish up the season – hopefully pitch well enough to be a part of something at the end.”
If there are no hang ups, Maholm would move on to live batting practice and then make at least one minor league rehab start.
