Former Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton appears to be drawing lots of interest on the free agency market. More than 10 teams have requested his medicals and are looking closely at him, reports Jon Heyman of SI.com.
Broxton had a swift fall from grace. At several different points in 2009 and 2010, he was one of the best closers in baseball. He is a two-time All-Star. Through 38 appearances in 2010, he had converted 19 of 21 save opportunities with a 1.93 ERA and 53 strikeouts in just 37 1/3 innings. He had only walked seven. The rest of the season, however, he blew five saves while recording only three. His ERA was 7.20 and he walked more guys (21) than he struck out (20). The bad carried over into 2011, as he was awful through 14 outings before an elbow injury ended his season prematurely.
