Broxton's recent inactivity no concern for LA

ANAHEIM -- Jonathan Broxton, who seemed to be a closer headed to his second All-Star selection when the Dodgers were rolling in May, has pitched to one batter in the past nine days.

And that one batter, Boston's Dustin Pedroia, hit a walk-off single as the Red Sox beat the Dodgers on Saturday.

"I'm not really concerned about him," manager Joe Torre said about Broxton's inactivity. "It's an indication of what our record's been. He throws enough."

Broxton is 3-0 with 16 saves and a 0.92 ERA. He has 42 strikeouts in 29 1/3 innings.
