SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Even after throwing three solid innings, Paul Maholm faces a tough challenge to crack the Los Angeles Dodgers' rotation.
Maholm allowed one run on three hits in three innings as a Dodgers split squad and the Texas Rangers tied 5-5 Saturday. The game was halted after nine innings.
Maholm won 23 games the past two seasons and signed as a free agent on Feb. 8 with the Dodgers, who have a deep and stacked rotation. He has started 242 of his 243 games in the majors.
