Reds setup man Jonathan Broxton undergoes season-ending forearm surgery

Cincinnati Reds right-handed reliever Jonathan Broxton had season-ending surgery on Friday August 23 to repair a torn flexor mass in his right forearm. Team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek performed the operation.

Broxton’s rehabilitation is expected to take approximately six months. He will be ready for the start of Spring Training in 2014.

Broxton came out of Wednesday’s game when he felt something pull apart in his forearm while pitching in the eighth inning vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks.

In a shortened season covering 34 games, Broxton was 2-2 with a 4.11 ERA and 25 strikeouts over 30 2/3 innings. He’s allowed 27 hits and walked 12. He was on the disbaled list from June 15-Aug. 9 because of a flexor mass strain in his right elbow.

Bad shoulder lands Reds’ Rolen on disabled list; surprised Costanzo recalled from AAA

 

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen production has been painful this season and now he’s on the disabled list with an ailing shoulder which has been the cause of his slow bat.

In 29 games this season, Rolen is batting .174 with two home runs, 11 RBIs and a .238 on-base percentage. During Spring Training, Rolen looked healthy and played very well, as he batted .356, but he has not been able to carry that performance into the regular season games.

On Saturday, Rolen was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left shoulder. The club purchased the contract of third baseman Mike Costanzo from Triple-A Louisville to join the 25-man roster.

Team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek examined Rolen on Saturday evening. The left shoulder is the one that needed surgery multiple times over the years, including last season, when the 37-year-old missed most of the second half.

Rolen is in the final year of a contract that is paying him $6.5 million this season.

Costanzo has been very busy early in 2012 having played in a combined 34 games with Louisville and Double-A Pensacola. The 28-year-old has batted .303 with six homers and 24 RBIs. When he appears for the Reds, it will be his big league debut. He was a second-round Draft pick of the Phillies in 2005, and joined Reds in 2010 after playing independent ball for Camden in the Atlantic League.
