MLB: Reds, Broxton agree to three-year deal

The Cincinnati Reds and free agent closer Jonathan Broxton agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal on Wednesday.

Broxton, 28, was acquired by the Reds in July from the Kansas City Royals. In 2012, Broxton posted a 2.48 ERA in 58 relief innings. Standing at 6’4″ and weighing in at about 300 lb. Broxton is no doubt one of the biggest pitchers you will ever see.

The signing of Broxton should also enable the Reds to move hard throwing left-hander Aroldis Chapman, into the starting rotation.
