CINCINNATI (AP) - The Reds plan to activate right-handed reliever Jonathan Broxton off the disabled list before the final game of their series against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday.
Broxton has been sidelined since June 15 by a sore right elbow. He was their primary set-up man before he got hurt.
Manager Dusty Baker also expects catcher Ryan Hanigan and left fielder Ryan Ludwick to come off the disabled list by the end of the week. Hanigan has been out since July 11 with an injured left wrist. Ludwick tore cartilage in his right shoulder while sliding into third base on opening day.
Ludwick, their cleanup hitter, is only 2 of 28 on a rehab stint in the minors. Under Major League Baseball's rules, his rehab stint has to end on Sunday.
