The Kansas City Royals have a few veteran players that they're likely to move -- or at least attempt to -- in the next two days before the 2012 MLB trade deadline, and Jonathan Broxton might be the most likely to go. The Royals signed him to a one-year, $4 million deal that has become a major bargain for a guy who was a fringe All-Star and closer for the team in Joakim Soria's absence. Now word is coming that the San Francisco Giants are interested.
According to a source the Giants have serious interest in Broxton (same type of source we usually use (ie. GM,AsstGM, MGR, Prez or owner))— JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) July 29, 2012
The Giants have been connected to a number of relievers as the deadline approaches, including Brandon League of the Seattle Mariners.
Broxton is 1-2 with a 2.27 ERA and 23 saves.
