NEW YORK (AP) — All-Star closer Jonathan Broxton has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers because of elbow pain.

Broxton is 1-2 with a 5.68 ERA and seven saves in 14 games, and his velocity dropped from 96 mph last weekend to 90 mph on Tuesday night, when he threw a pair of consecutive four-pitch walks in a loss to the Chicago Cubs. The DL move was retroactive to Wednesday.

Los Angeles recalled right-hander Kenley Jansen from Double-A Chattanooga before Friday night’s game at the New York Mets.
