High school and college careerEdit
Maholm was selected by the Pirates in the first round (8th overall) of the 2003 Major League Baseball Draft.
He made his major league debut, as a starter, on August 30, 2005 against the Milwaukee Brewers and pitched 8.0 shutout innings, earning his first career win. He finished the 2005 season, providing the Pirates with a 3-1 record in 6 games, with a 2.18 ERA.
In a 2008 spring training game against the New York Yankees, Maholm struck out actor/comedian Billy Crystal, who had signed a one-day contract with the Yankees. Crystal did, however, manage to foul a ball off before striking out.
After the 2008 season, Maholm signed a three year contract extension worth a guaranteed $14.5 million and a team option for 2012.
