Braves' pitcher Paul Maholm, who has been out with a bruised left wrist and hasn't pitched since July 20, is set to come off the disabled list and get back into the Braves starting rotation. As reported by Chris Iseman of MLB.com, Maholm will be activated on Thursday and start Atlanta's series opener against the St. Louis Cardinals.  Maholm was 9-9 with a 4.41 earned run average in 20 starts before the injury. In his rehab start on Saturday for Class A Rome, Maholm allowed a run on four hits, with six strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings pitched. Maholm felt good in his rehab outing, stating that none of the four hits he allowed were hit hard.  He's confident his command is there and is ready to go back to the Braves and contribute during the stretch run. Maholm insists he is pain free, which is a good sign for the Braves rotation and bad sign for the rest of the National League. "It's been a month. Like I said early on, I'm not a very good DL patient," Maholm said. "I'm just looking forward to just getting back in there and competing, and obviously we've been playing well. So obviously it's been fun to watch, but it's going to be better to be a part of it." Paul Maholm is 18 games under .500 for his career, with a record of 75-93. His earned run average is 4.27 over 1,451 innings. Last season combined with the Cubs and Braves, he was 13-11 with an earned run average of 3.67 in 189 innings.  He allowed only 178 hits, while striking out 140 batters.
