Brewers | Jonathan Broxton to setup role

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 11:06:48 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jonathan Broxton will be pushed to a setup role after the team re-signed RP Francisco Rodriguez to be their closer Thursday, Feb. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton's only real fantasy baseball value came with him inheriting the ninth-inning role, so now that that's gone, he shouldn't be drafted in standard 12-team mixed leagues. He might be worth a low investment in NL-only leagues as a handcuff to K-Rod.

Brewers | Milwaukee not talking Jonathan Papelbon

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 11:03:58 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon and the Phils have had a tough time trying to deal him, and Philadelphia was only willing to pay a significant portion of Papelbon's contract if Milwaukee gave up a top prospect, according to major league sources. The Brewers were unwilling to do so, but they offered giving up RP Jonathan Broxton to balance finances. The premise of such a trade was flawed, and the trade talks for Papelbon are now dormant.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman tweaked hamstring

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 07:57:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds CL Aroldis Chapman (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring injury in the All-Star Game covering first base. Chapman said he was fine and isn't 100 percent ready to run. "I will be fine," Chapman said. "I've been pitching through it for a while. As long as I don't have to run, it feels good to pitch."

Fantasy Tip: We don't expect this to hinder him too much because his results have been phenomenal of late. However, it's something to be cautious of moving forward. Jonathan Broxton should be handcuffed to him if possible.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman could return Friday

Thu, 08 May 2014 10:22:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman (face) could return from the disabled list Friday, May 9. However, manager Bryan Price was non-committal about Chapman's return after the closer had two rough rehab outings with Triple-A Louisville this week. C Corky Miller, who caught Chapman at Louisville, didn't seem too concerned about Chapman being ready to return to the majors. RP Jonathan Broxton is 5-for-5 in save opportunities with Chapman out, but getting Chapman back will allow the team to slide Broxton back into a setup role.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton may be used in save situations if the Reds choose to ease Chapman back into the role. Hang onto Broxton if you must in very deep leagues, but cutting him for a more useful player is understandable when Chapman is back.
