BY foxsports • July 30, 2013

Jonathan Broxton was scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday night with the Triple-A Louisville Bats against the Syracuse Chiefs, but Mother Nature intervened. The game was rained out and will be made up Wednesday as part of a doubleheader. 
Broxton, a right-handed reliever who went on the disabled list in mid-June with a right elbow flexor strain, has appeared in 29 games this season for the Reds and posted a 2-2 record with a 4.33 ERA. 

Per Bats radio announcer Matt Andrews, he is now scheduled to start the first game of the between the Bats and Chiefs on Wednesday. 
Broxton is not the only Red rehabbing with the Bats. Also affected by the rainout is Ryan Ludwick, who was scheduled to play the sixth game of his rehab assignment. The slugging outfielder went 1 for 6 with a double in his first two games with the Bats after going 1 for 6 with a pair of runs scored in three games for the low Single-A Dayton Dragons.
