Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal out as closer

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 18:54:24 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal is out as closer and will be used in a different role going forward, manager Mike Matheny said Saturday, June 25. RP Seung-Hwan Oh, RP Kevin Siegrist and RP Jonathan Broxton will all see save chances, according to Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Oh has been outstanding this year and is your best bet if you are hunting for saves. However, Siegrist and Broxton could also be worth speculative adds in what is likely to be a messy situation for fantasy owners to deal with.

Cardinals | Jonathan Broxton sheds 20 pounds

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 06:16:03 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals RP Jonathan Broxton dropped 20 pounds during the offseason. Manager Mike Matheny said bringing Broxton back was important to take some of the load off of RP Trevor Rosenthal.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton doesn't have the same upper-90's velocity he had earlier in his career, but he pitched well after being traded to the Cards late last year. His 1.35 WHIP was still too high, but he could be worth consideration in the final rounds as he should see a few save chances.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal was unavailable

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 14:40:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal was not unavailable in a save situation against the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, Sept. 22, and neither was RP Jonathan Broxton. The Cardinals went with RP Kevin Siegrist to lock the game down in the eighth and RP Steve Cishek recorded the save. It was the 95th save of Cishek's career, and he became the sixth Cardinals reliever to record a save in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal has been one of the more consistent closers in the league this year. He has 47 saves, a 1.49 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 10.9 strikeouts per nine innings. Continue to run with Rosenthal as your closer to finish out the season.

Cardinals | Jonathan Broxton acquired by Cards

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:56:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jonathan Broxton was acquired by the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, July 31. It's unknown what the Brewers received in return.

Fantasy Tip: The trade really does nothing for Broxton's already nonexistent fantasy value. However, in Milwaukee, it confirms that Jeremy Jeffress or Will Smith would probably be next in line for closing duties for the Brewers if Francisco Rodriguez is traded at the deadline.

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.

The Brewers, unwilling to make such an exchange, instead proposed sending RP Jonathan Broxton to the Phillies as a way to balance the finances.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman out again

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 07:37:11 -0700

Cincinnati Reds CL Aroldis Chapman (shoulder) was unavailable Tuesday, Aug. 19, with a sore left shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: He is day to day, and Jonathan Broxton should be called upon in save chances in Chapman's stead.
