Cincinnati Reds RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) has been shut down since landing on the disabled list. "He's been working on strengthening it," trainer Paul Lessard said. "He finally has his full range of motion back. We wanted to get it flushed out. He'll probably start throwing again this weekend. I don't want to call it a target date, but that's what we're looking at. RP Sean Marshall (shoulder) is long tossing from 120 feet.

Cincinnati Reds RP Jonathan Broxton (back) was unavailable to pitch due to a "knot" in his upper back area Thursday, May 16. He'll be ready to pitch Friday, May 17.
Fantasy Tip: This explains why J.J. Hoover came into the game late. However, Hoover has been pitching much better this year and could at least have a partial share of saving opportunities if Aroldis Chapman were to miss time due to injuries.

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker said RPs Aroldis Chapman (allergies) and Jonathan Broxton are both unlikely to be available in a save situation Tuesday, April 30. Chapman is dealing with allergies. "Chapman looked like hell. I don't think he's available tonight," Baker said. "I don't know if (Jonathan) Broxton is available tonight. We may have to close with somebody else. He's gone two days in a row and he threw 30 pitches the day before. I was a little apprehensive about using him last night. It's not the innings sometimes, but the workload of that inning." Chapman has also worked the last two days.
Fantasy Tip: Logan Ondrusek or Alfredo Simon are the likely options to fill in if a save situation arises tonight, but they shouldn't be added just for one night.
