Jonathan Broxton Trade: Royals Get J.C. Sulbaran From Reds

The Kansas City Royals finally traded Jonathan Broxton at the MLB trade deadline to the Cincinnati Reds, a late entry into the field of those rumored to be interested. Now the terms have been disclosed as the Royals receive J.C. Sulbaran in return for their closer this season.

Sulbaran was the Reds 30th round selection in the 2008 MLB Draft. Now 22-years-old, Sulbaran is currently 7-7 with a 4.04 ERA in AA for Cincy.

Broxton was one of the better free agent signings for Dayton Moore over the years with a 1-2 record to go with a 2.27 ERA and 23 saves while taking over for Joakim Soria, who underwent his second Tommy John surgery earlier this season.
