Reds | Jonathan Broxton acquired

The Cincinnati Reds acquired Kansas City Royals RP Jonathan Broxton for an undisclosed package.

Fantasy Tip: Brox will fall into setup work behind Aroldis Chapman, rendering his fantasy utility to NL-only formats. His peripherals haven't sniffed his old levels, and without consistent save chances, he's a mixed roster clogger.

Kansas City has a few options at the back end and might divvy it up in - ugh - committee form. But Greg Holland's combination of recent performance, late-innings usage and experience in the role last year gives him the edge. Aaron Crow is your second choice for fantasy adding, with Kelvin Herrera and Tim Collins rounding out the speculative chain.
