      Jonathan Broxton: Team option declined

      Broxton had his team option declined Monday, Jenifer Langosch of reports. Broxton actually enjoyed success after a midseason trade to the Cardinals, working to a 2.66 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 23.2 innings in St. Louis, but he'll now become a free agent. After struggling throughout much of the first half as a member of the Brewers, the 31-year-old's strong second half should help him land a spot in the back end of a bullpen.

      Brewers RP Jonathan Broxton loses hold of setup role

      The struggles of Brewers setup man Jonathan Broxton means he is no longer their setup man. In fact, nobody is at the moment. Craig Counsell has declared that he will mix-and-match in such situations going forward unless someone emerges. Broxton has allowed 15 runs in his last 18 1/3 innings. His latest mistake landed over the fence Friday night, courtesy of Diamondbacks shorstop Nick Ahmed and breaking a 4-4 deadlock. Counsell said after the game that Broxton is finding it difficult to miss bats. "I feel like there's a little bit of a lack of a put-away [pitch] for him," he told "I think we start thinking about [removing Broxton from the setup role] because it's a big spot and we need outs in those spots. We need to give ourselves a chance in those spots. Those are big leverage innings he's pitching and we have to get outs in those innings." Asked who will take over for Broxton, he said it would not be one guy.

      Brewers' Jonathan Broxton doesn't care about his role

      Brewers reliever Jonathan Broxton doesn't care about his role, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Broxton enters the season as the favorite to close, but manager Ron Roenicke said he wouldn't announce his closer for a few more weeks. That doesn't really matter to Broxton, though. "I don't care where I pitch. Seventh, eighth, ninth — I don't care," he said. "They're all important outs." The Brewers are reportedly talking to Francisco Rodriguez, but Broxton said he wouldn't mind if the team added another reliever. "I ain't going to sweat it if they go add somebody, and if they don't I'm not going to sweat," Broxton said. "I'm going to go out there and give it everything I have, every day." Broxton posted a 2.30 ERA over 58 2/3 innings last year.

      Brewers won't name closer until midway through camp

      While Jonathan Broxton is ideally the most likely candidate for the role, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Saturday that he won't name a closer until midway through spring training, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. General manager Doug Melvin wouldn't discuss about the possibility of trading for embattled reliever Jonathan Broxton. Melvin wouldn't reveal if Milwaukee will make a push for free agent Francisco Rodriguez. Broxton was traded from Cincinnati to Milwaukee in August. He posted a 2.30 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 49:19 K:BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings between the Reds and Brewers in 2014. He will earn $9 million this season, and his deal includes a $9 million club option or $1 million buyout for 2016.

      Report: Talks between Brewers-Phillies involving Papelbon are idle

      Talks between the Brewers and Phillies regarding a trade involving Philadelphia closer Jonathan Papelbon are inactive, sources told FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal. Previous discussions between the two clubs involved the Phillies paying a significant part of Papelbon's contract, if the Brewers sent a top prospect in return, per sources. However, Milwaukee was unwilling to make that deal, and instead offered reliever Jonathan Broxton to Philadelphia as a way to offset finances. But the Phillies viewed that offer as even less attractive since they were not landing a top prospect and didn't see the significant financial benefit, sources said. Broxton will earn $9 million this season, and his deal includes a $9 million club option or $1 million buyout for 2016. Papelbon will earn $13 million this season, and his $13 million option for '16 will vest if he finishes 48 games. The Brewers are on Papelbon's no-trade list, and he would likely require them to pick up his option, if he were to approve a trade.
