Despite the Atlanta Braves shuffling their starting rotation due to their 15-inning marathon with the Washington Nationals on Thursday, Paul Maholm will not make his comeback from disabled list on their six-game road trip.
Kris Medlen threw three innings on three days rest in Saturday's 15-inning loss, forcing the Braves to move him back in the rotation, but the Braves still feel like Maholm isn't ready to come back from the wrist contusion that's had him out since July 20.
"Like I said before, I'm not trying to build up to throw 95 [mph] or anything," Maholm said on braves.com. "I was just kind of getting back into game action, and obviously, I'm going to talk to them and see what they want me to do and what role they want me to come back in."
Maholm threw 5 2/3 innings for Single-A Rome on Saturday. He gave up one run on four hits and struck out six. If he stays on a five-day schedule, his next rehab start would come Thursday.
