The Mets bullpen has been disastrous this season as the team tries to hang onto its spot on the outside edge of the NL wild card race with a 46-44 record.
Broxton, meanwhile, has pitched well in the absence of Joakim Soria, with a 1-1 record, 22 saves and a 2.14 ERA in 32 innings for the Royals this season.
The 6'4 300 right-hander is set to be a free agent, so the return on prospects won't be anything too large, but as a relief pitcher, he's fairly fungible for a Kansas City team that is at least a year away from making a run at the playoffs.
New York, meanwhile, would probably not be a buyer at all if not for the addition of a second wild card into the MLB playoffs.
