For the first time in nearly six weeks, Jonathan Broxton took the mound at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. The audience? Manager Don Mattingly , pitching coach Rick Honeycutt and trainer Stan Conte, among others, to watch Broxton throw a simulated simulated game to Dodgers hitters -- they stood in the batter's box, but weren't allowed to swing the bat. The verdict? Mixed. Broxton, who was out with elbow problems, pitched to three men, throwing somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 to 20 pitches, and most of them were down. He wasn't anywhere near full velocity, and seemed to be laboring in his delivery.
