Jonathan Broxton has 12 strikeouts in 8 innings pitched with AAA Las Vegas. With the LA bullpen struggling, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Broxton recalled soon.
What tempers that enthusiasm is the fact the Dodgers do not seem inclined to flood their injury-depleted/ineffective roster with their top prospects. C’mon Cesar Izturis in the OF backing up Loften and Cruz and Drew and Repko? He had no pop as a SS and they want to play him as an OFer?
Despite the apparent intentions of Dodgers’ brass to leave their best prospects in the minors, I believe their hand will be forced.
Be ready to pounce.
