Jonathan BroxtonDodgers closer Jonathan Broxton has a bone spur and a bruise at the back of his elbow, but there's no structure damage, his agent tells Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

The Dodgers plan on waiting a couple of days to see how Broxton responds to rest before deciding whether to put him on the disabled list, agent B.B. Abbott said.

Broxton has struggled this season and didn't tell the Dodgers about his elbow stiffness until Wednesday, the day after he threw eight consecutive balls in the ninth inning, giving up a lead to the Cubs.

Agent: No structural damage in Broxton's elbows

Number 1 I love the Dodgers, but it pains me to say this...Broxton needs a Sports Psychologist FIRST AND FOREMOST.

He is suffering the shakes since Matt Stairs took him deep three year ago in the Playoffs...Dodger Fans are still waiting for the homer to hit.

I spoke to men who have played major league baseball and they all contend that he is AIMING and not throwing hence the drop in velocity!

I hope he gets his stuff together....WE NEED HIM

Agent: No structural damage in Broxton's elbow

Scott Boras said that Brian Taylor, hurt in an off season fight, would be ready for spring training!
Agents make the Soviet era Pravda look good.  Maybe the agent can tell Broxton to drop a few pounds!

Glad theres no structural damage! There's gotta be something wrong with it though, you just don't lose velocity like he has!

I am so glad that is going help. I think that he is going on the DL in few days.
