MLB Trade Rumors: Cincinnati Reds Want Royals Closer Jonathan Broxton

Jonathan Broxton is going to be the man of the next hour -- make that half hour -- given the time left in the MLB trade deadline and numerous teams could use bullpen help for the stretch run. A reliever such as Broxton is not only a cheap, one year commitment, but he's also a veteran presence with the ability to close out games. That's why the Kansas City Royals are hoping someone will pay a nice bounty, such as the Cincinnati Reds.

Broxton is 1-2 with a 2.27 ERA and 23 saves so far on the season.
