Reds | Jonathan Broxton to close until Aroldis Chapman returns

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:52:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price confirmed that RP Jonathan Broxton will continue to see most of the save opportunities until RP Aroldis Chapman (face) returns. "If you have somebody that's cemented into that role -- it doesn't mean he'll get every save opportunity -- but it does allow me to look at the game for eight innings," Price said. "It gets convoluted when you're going to go 'OK, let's get to the ninth and see what's left and pick your option from that spot.'"

Fantasy Tip: Chapman may not be back for another month, so Broxton owners will have some time to make use of his short-term ninth-inning duties.

Reds | Jonathan Broxton won't close initially

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:34:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday, April 8, that RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) will not close in his first appearance since coming off the 15-day disabled list. "I'd like to get him in a game, pitch an inning and get his feet (wet). Inevitably, he will be our closer," Price said.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to hold off using Broxton until he is officially plugged back in as closer. Until then, he is useful only in deep rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. Expect Broxton to be in the closer's role sooner rather than later, though.

Reds | Jonathan Broxton activated, Trevor Bell to DL

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 12:27:32 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds activated RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 8, and placed RP Trevor Bell (elbow) on the DL with right elbow inflammation in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton should now be owned in all leagues, as he'll likely receive the first shot to lock down saves in the ninth inning with Aroldis Chapman (face) out. J.J. Hoover loses his value in most mixed leagues.

Cincinnati Reds RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) struck out two and hit a batter in a scoreless rehab outing Friday, April 4. Eleven of his 19 pitches went for strikes.

Reds | Closer-by-committee until Jonathan Broxton returns

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 13:50:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds RPs J.J. Hoover, Logan Ondrusek, Manny Parra and Sam LeCure are all closing possibilities until RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) returns from the disabled list next week. Manager Bryan Price seems to indicate that Broxton is the favorite to close when he returns. "I'm not to the point where I'm going to designate a guy. We anticipate Broxton being back relatively quickly. We know all of those pitchers I mentioned have a history in this league. If we can match them up as best as possible until we're able to get a guy like Broxton, who's been a closer, back. He'll be the guy who holds down the fort until Aroldis Chapman comes back," Price said.

Fantasy Tip: It's pretty clear that Broxton is the favorite for the primary closing duties when he's healthy, leaving the other options as setup men based on matchups. Grab Broxton now if you are in need of more saves options.

Reds | Jonathan Broxton would return as closer

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 13:17:47 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) could return from the disabled list next week, and manager Bryan Price will use Broxton as the team's closer until RP Aroldis Chapman (head) returns.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman will be out for a while, and Broxton is widely available in standard leagues and even deep mixed formats. If you have an available DL spot, it wouldn't be a bad idea to grab Brox now and keep him stashed until he returns.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman needs 6-8 weeks recovery time

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 09:49:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman (face) can recover from his facial injuries in six to eight weeks, but it doesn't mean he'll be throwing immediately after that timetable.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Chapman to need somewhere around eight to 10 weeks before he's back throwing and ready to return. This is a big blow to those that took Chapman in the first tier of big-name closers. If you're looking for his replacement, J.J. Hoover is probably the best speculation, but Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall could form some sort of platoon.
