Before leaving for Atlanta, Maholm was at the ballpark with his left wrist wrapped in ice. The Braves are headed to New York for a four-game series against the Mets that starts Monday, but starter Paul Maholm went back to Atlanta on Sunday to get his sprained left wrist checked out. Maholm gave up seven runs in a 10-6 loss to the White Sox and was saddled with his third straight defeat, but the bigger issue afterward was the condition of his wrist which he initially tweaked while hitting July 10 in his last start before the All-Star break. "X-rays were negative, but he's not going to pitch for the next four days why not send him down and have our guy, our hand specialist, look at him?" Gonzalez said before series finale against the White Sox on Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field.
