Even before the deal was announced, Maholm was in the clubhouse Saturday when pitchers and catchers reported to the team's Arizona spring training facility. His name was even on a locker, temporarily, but it was removed later.
Maholm declined to talk to reporters, and the announcement was made later in the day.
The 31-year-old pitcher was 10-11 with a 4.41 ERA in 26 starts for the Atlanta Braves last season. Maholm has a career record of 76-95 in 243 major league appearances.
The agreement increases the Dodgers' projected luxury tax payroll to $253 million for 25 players, including the midpoint of closer Kenley Jansen's salary arbitration figures and an estimated $11.5 million in benefits.
