Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Pirates pitcher Paul Maholm received from good news from Dr. James Andrews.

Andrews confirmed the Pirates diagnosis of a strained muscle in his left shoulder.

Maholm was placed on the disabled list with a left shoulder strain on Friday, retroactive to Thursday. He said on Saturday that the injury had plagued him in spots throughout his career, but has been more persistent in his past few starts.

Two of the Pirates five starting pitchers are now injured after right-hander Kevin Correia was placed on the DL.
