    He is. I think it was just a move to clear up a spot for Christiani,

    Cueto DL retroactive to 6/29. Procedural move.

    To be fair, lightning has struck twice with Broxton this year.

    The first time he went on the DL, Dusty said the training staff specifically told him Broxton's injury could not get worse if he pitched in that extra-inning game. He pitched and it did get worse and he missed 2 months.

    This time, Broxton was cleared after being unavailable for 2 straight days for what Dusty said was "the same thing as last time." He makes one appearance and is now out for who knows how long.

    Brox, Marshall, Madson, Masset.

    Really shows the perils of being a relief pitcher. Also shows that innings pitched is not the only test of wear and tear.

    These relievers who pitch day after day sometimes don't hold up well in the health department as they get more and more years under their belts.

    I hate hearing this news. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be surprised if the surgical procedure that Broxton is about to undergo also involves reconstructive Tommy John Surgery. Partial tears of the ulnar collateral ligament are often found with flexor mass injuries, since the flexor pronator mass helps to stabilize the elbow joint.

    Well, he had just come off a major injury before they acquired him as well. So lightning may have struck twice, but Broxton was at least walking around in the rain with a golf club over his head. Or something like that.

    From what Broxton said, he had pain in an entirely different area of his arm last night than his previous injury. That certainly suggests a very different injury. Now, could it have been a result of him compensating somehow for the other issue he had? Absolutely. But we don't know that.

    I just think it's a big coincidence that Tuesday Baker says they've been holding Broxton out because he is having "the same issues" that he had 2 months ago, and that he hopes he can be cleared soon. The next day, DL + surgery.

    So much for my dream of Broxton having a lights out last two months and then being able to deal him this offseason. This also makes it more likely Chapman stays in the bullpen.

    It also shows why dumping tons of money on relievers is a poor strategy.

    Broxton had more red flags than a May Day parade in Moscow. 300 pounds, a recent history of arm woes, brutal mechanics and a K/IP ratio that had reduced by 33% since his arm issues. I loved him as a July trade acquisition for two C-Level prospects, but to long term sign him was a risky move that backfired.

    Could be one reason they are putting Lorenzen on the fast track for the bullpen. They notice how all these arms keep getting injured and need some new blood in there.
