Re: Broxton to the DL, Villarreal back up
Reds: Broxton on the mend
• Pitching coach Bryan Price said it is "very unlikely" that setup man Jonathan Broxton will return from the disabled list on Saturday, the earliest date he is eligible to rejoin the club. Broxton began throwing lightly on Tuesday as he works his way back from a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. Broxton, 2-2 with a 4.33 ERA this season, will initiate a throwing program on Friday.
"He's not pain-free yet," head trainer Paul Lessard said.
If he is not pain free yet it looks like Broxton will out for awhile.
