LOS ANGELES -- When talking to reporters about injured reliever Vicente Padilla on Thursday, Dodgers head athletic trainer Stan Conte gave an update on another injured reliever.

Jonathan Broxton has been on the disabled list since May 6 after an MRI exam revealed a bone bruise in his right elbow but no structural damage. Conte said there still is no timetable for a return, but he said that Broxton has been in what he calls a "sub-maximal" throwing program for the past six days. The program limits Broxton to throwing 60-65 mph as a means to keep his right shoulder loose without putting pressure on the sore elbow.

"He's doing very well," Conte said. "We'll just kind of progress it. I'm hoping he's on the mound in the next couple of weeks, but I don't know if that's a conservative view or that's a quick view. We'll just have to wait and see how this works out."
