The Atlanta Braves placed starting pitcher Paul Maholm on the disabled list on Monday because of a contusion to his left wrist.
Maholm, who was acquired from the Cubs midway through last season, is 9-9 with a 4.41 ERA in 20 starts this season.
However, he has given up 16 runs over 13 1/3 innings in his last three starts.
Alex Wood is scheduled to start in Maholm's place on Thursday.
