Broxton is not in the lineup for Monday's series opener with the Pirates.

The 27-year-old has just three hits and 15 strikeouts in his past 14 games, so he'll head to the bench for the second time in three contests. Brett Phillips will log a start in center field to replace him, which could be the case more frequently moving forward if Broxton fails to take advantage of his playing time.
