MRI reveals bone spur in Jonathan Broxton’s right elbow

Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times heard from Jonathan Broxton’s agent Thursday that an MRI taken on the right-hander’s troublesome right elbow showed no structural damage.

But it’s not all good news.

According to the agent, B.B. Abbott, a bone spur was found at the back of Broxton’s right elbow and some bruising was also discovered. It’s not anything that will require surgery, but it could delay the closer’s rehabilitation process.

The Dodgers are going to wait a couple of days to see how Broxton responds to treatment before making a decision about placing him on the 15-day disabled list. Hong-Chih Kuo and Vicente Padilla will continue to draw save opportunities in the meantime.
