Broxton’s Tight Schedule

Jonathan Broxton, penciled in as the replacement for closer Takashi Saito, will probably have three opportunities to face hitters before he leaves Camelback Ranch-Glendale March 1 for World Baseball Classic competition, pitching coach Rick Honeycutt said. Broxton is tentatively set to pitch in Monday’s intrasquad game. Honeycutt said Team USA pitching coach Marcel Lachemann plans for no reliever to pitch on back-to-back days. — Ken Gurnick
