Jonathan Broxton Is Out For The Rest Of The Season

Jonathan Broxton is finished for the year.

He had surgery to repair the torn flexor mass in his right forearm this morning.

Dr. Timothy Kremchek performed the surgery which will require a six month rehabilitation period.

"It could have been more severe," said Dusty Baker, looking on the bright side.  "If there is a silver lining it is that it wasn't in his elbow."

Baker was asked if the development would cause acceleration of Sean Marshal's program to fill the void.

"You can't put him on the fast track because someone else got hurt," Baker said.  "You would just take the risk of hurting Marshall worse. It's not the uniform it is the people in the uniform.  Some people think the uniform is superman's cape."
