Broxton set for 'pen session; Hanigan swinging bat

Broxton set for 'pen session; Hanigan swinging bat

|

CINCINNATI -- Reds right-handed reliever Jonathan Broxton, who has been on the disabled list since June 15 because of a strain in his elbow, is slated to throw in his first side bullpen session on Saturday.

"It all kind of depends on how tomorrow goes for what our next couple of days after that will be," head trainer Paul Lessard said.

Catcher Ryan Hanigan, on the DL since July 11 with a left wrist sprain, started swinging a bat on Friday. Lessard felt that Hanigan would be ready to return when he's eligible for activation on Thursday.

Reds rotation ace Johnny Cueto, on the DL since June 29 for the third time this season because of a strained right lat muscle, could begin a new throwing program in a week.

Cueto is not currently with the team because he is home in the Dominican Republic dealing with a personal issue. He is expected to be back on Saturday.
