Marty Winn, who is a Braves fan but can be forgiven for this because he is also a Greg Maddux fan, e-mailed me to remind me that Maddux has had one stint on the DL -- at the beginning of the 2002 season, when John Burkett wound up getting the Opening Day start for the Braves.

The DL stint couldn't have lasted too long because Maddux made his usual 34 starts that year, and went 16-6 with a 2.62 ERA. It was the only year since 1987 that he threw fewer than 200 innings (199 1/3).

One scary thing: he has already allowed more homers this season (15, in 69 1/3 IP) than he did in that entire 2002 season (14).
