Jonathan Broxton Not that it came up in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Giants, but Joe Torre said before the game that he would no longer use Jonathan Broxton in save situations.

"I think we have to just put him in situations not in the ninth inning, I mean a save situation in the ninth inning," Torre told . "And just try to get some appearances under his belt. Wherever we go, whether we're going to get to the postseason or not, I think this is very important: that he finishes this season with a good taste in his mouth."

Broxton gave up a two-run homer to Juan Uribe in the ninth inning on Saturday, his sixth blown save in 28 opportunities.

Torre had replaced Broxton with Hong-Chih Kuo as his closer, although he was still using Broxton in some matchup situations and when Kuo was unavailable. That duty will now fall to rookie Kenley Jansen.

Broxton is under contract for $7 million next season. Broxton is 5-5 with a 3.70 ERA and 22 saves.
