Jonathan Broxton went for an MRI yesterday after being scratched from a rehab appearance on Sunday due to renewed pain in his elbow. It’s safe to say the Dodgers didn’t like what they found.
According to Tony Jackson of ESPN Los Angeles, Broxton will be shut down for at least three weeks. Even more telling, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said earlier this evening that he isn’t counting on the big right-hander to contribute before the end of the season.
“We don’t have a timetable now,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “We did this once before, where he was shut down for three weeks and did all the stuff to return, and then we got back here. It’s just hard to say now that we’re going to get him back in six weeks or seven weeks or eight weeks. To me, at this point, if we get him back, great, all the better. But we have to kind of move forward.”
No, Mattingly isn’t a doctor or a fortune teller, but considering the luck he’s had with his beleaguered bullpen this season, you can’t blame him for being a little cynical about timetables.
