Dodgers struggling “to find an MRI tube large enough” for Jonathan Broxton

As a fellow fatso I can definitely sympathize with Jonathan Broxton, but this note about the closer’s elbow injury from Ken Gurnick of MLB.com is still amusing:

Mattingly said one of the immediate issues was to find an MRI tube large enough for Broxton to get his 300-pound frame into.

“I’m serious,” said Mattingly.

Broxton is listed at 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds, but … well, let’s just say my driver’s license claims I’m 6-foot-2 and 235.

Of course, given their current payroll situation maybe the Dodgers are just shopping around for a bargain on the MRI.
