The Royals made a nice move by signing former Dodgers closer Jon Broxton to a one year deal. Broxton has had his share of injuries lately and they were able to get him for $4 million with $1 million in incentives. The Royals then announced that Broxton will set up Soria but it gives the Royals one more weapon in the pen.
After a rough 2010 season, Broxton pitched in only 14 games in 2011 and he just had surgery a couple of months ago on his elbow. I like the move because of Broxton thrives and the Royals are still in “building” mode, they can use him as trade bait. Broxton is a power arm and this is a guy who wracks up strikeouts.
