CINCINNATI -- Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton left the game against Arizona on Wednesday in the eighth inning after possibly aggravating a right elbow injury.

Broxton missed almost two months earlier this season with a right elbow injury.

Broxton made four appearances after being activated from the disabled list on Aug. 7.

Manager Dusty Baker said before Wednesday's game that the right-hander wasn't available for the previous two games because he "wasn't OK."

Broxton started the eighth with the Reds leading 8-5 and allowed a leadoff home run to Gerardo Parra that originally was ruled a double after bouncing off the top of the left field wall and back onto the field. The hit was ruled a homer after a 3:02 replay review by the umpires.

Broxton left the field escorted by a Reds trainer after walking Wil Nieves. Closer Aroldis Chapman took over.
