MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers have again shut down closer Jonathan Broxton because of a bone bruise in his right elbow.


Broxton underwent another MRI on Monday which showed that the bruise still hasn’t fully healed, and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he would rest for three weeks before returning to his rehab program.


Broxton appeared in two games for Triple-A Albuquerque last week but was shut down this weekend after complaining of soreness.

He had allowed one run and struck out five while pitching one inning in each appearance for the Isotopes.
