MLB Trade Rumors: Orioles Interest In Royals Closer Jonathan Broxton Fading

The Kansas City Royals have several guys on the trading block according to the numerous MLB trade rumors out there before tomorrow's deadline, but the player most likely to move is likely Jonathan Broxton. Numerous teams have been interested, from the Orioles to the Giants, but now teams seem to be backing off. The Orioles especially have changed their stance, although "sources" giving information like this is often used as a smokescreen this time of year.

Broxton was nearly an All-Star for the Royals as one of a handful of Final Vote candidates. Broxton is 1-2 with a 2.27 ERA and 23 saves.
