Jonathan Broxton closes out win over Cubs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton picked up his second save in a row Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Cubs.

Broxton got through the ninth with little trouble, walking just one batter while striking out two. He has now appeared in three games since returning from the disabled list, allowing one hit and three walks while striking out four batters in three shutout innings. 


Reds manager comfortable with Jonathan Broxton at closer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price reiterated Wednesday his comfort level with reliever Jonathan Broxton filling in as closer while Aroldis Chapman (head) is on the disabled list.

"If you have somebody that's cemented into that role -- it doesn't mean he'll get every save opportunity -- but it does allow me to look at the game for eight innings," Price said, per MLB.com. "It gets convoluted when you're going to go 'OK, let's get to the ninth and see what's left and pick your option from that spot.'

"It's good to have Broxton back because it definitely settles some areas of our bullpen. It's one more pitcher closer to setting up our 'pen the way we want to."


Jonathan Broxton earns first save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton picked up his first save of the season Tuesday, giving up one hit and one walk in a scoreless ninth inning in his team's 7-5 win over the Pirates.

Broxton has tossed two scoreless innings since coming back from a forearm injury. He should serve as the team's closer for as long as Aroldis Chapman is sidelined.


Jonathan Broxton won't close in first appearance


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton, who was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, will not close in his season debut, ESPN 1530 reports.

"I'd like to get him in a game, pitch an inning and get his feet [wet]," manager Bryan Price said. "Inevitably he will be our closer."

Broxton is returning from a forearm injury. He'll likely get a mid-game appearance in Tuesday's matchup with the Cardinals.


Reds take one reliever off DL, put another one on Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) The Reds announced Tuesday they activated reliever Jonathan Broxton (forearm) off the 15-day disabled list. To clear a roster spot, reliever Trevor Bell went on the disabled list because of elbow inflammation.

Jonathan Broxton still on track to be activated Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton (forearm) joined the team Monday in St. Louis and remains on track to come off the disabled list before Tuesday's game.

"Our intentions are to activate him over the course of the series here with the Cardinals," Reds manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "There's a good chance he will be activated (Tuesday). He pitched back-to-back days. We wanted to give him at least two days off of recovery time after that, and then he will be in our mix."

There's a good chance Broxton will take over as closer with Aroldis Chapman sidelined. However, Broxton did his best to avoid naming himself the replacement closer.

"That's up to them. They're going to tell me when to pitch. We've got Chappy down. I'll pitch the fifth, sixth, seventh or 12th, I don't care," Broxton said. "It doesn't matter to me. You still have to get three outs no matter where you pitch."


Jonathan Broxton expected to be activated Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Jonathan Broxton will start Double-A rehab Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Pensacola on Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. He's scheduled to throw one inning on Friday and one inning on Saturday.

"I think the biggest test will be tomorrow, after I get out there and get moving, running around and take some swings and see how it responds tomorrow and see how everything feels," Broxton said. "But I don't expect any problems."

Jonathan Broxton could return from DL early next week


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Aroldis Chapman, Jonathan Broxton hit disabled list


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) The Reds have placed both Aroldis Chapman and Jonathan Broxton on the 15-day disabled list.

Jonathan Broxton to begin season on disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton will begin the season on the disabled list, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Reds not yet consider possible Aroldis Chapman replacements


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) With Aroldis Chapman possibly sidelined up to two months following surgery to repair a fracture above his eye, the Reds suddenly have an unexpected opening at closer. However, manager Bryan Price has yet to consider who will take over in his stead, with opening day fast approaching.

"Whatever is going to happen, we're going to have 25 guys here at the end of Spring Training, and that's going to be the hand that we're dealt," Price told MLB.com Thursday. "And we're going to go out there and we're going to compete and bust our tails to be excellent. Who those 25 guys are at this point in time, I don't know. I don't have any idea. I haven't really thought at all about the layout of the bullpen. That will come in time. At this point in time, the focus is really on Aroldis' health."

Jonathan Broxton would appear to be one obvious option, though he has been limited during the spring while recovering from forearm surgery. He made his debut earlier in the week, and there is still come question as to whether he will be available when the season starts.

Broxton is a former closer who recorded 106 saves over five seasons before being acquired by the Reds two seasons ago. He finished 2013 with a 4.11 ERA in 30 2/3 innings of work.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jonathan Broxton nearing game action


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton will throw a bullpen session on Friday with hitters standing in the box, MLB.com reports. Broxton could be cleared for game-action if he doesn't experience any setbacks on Friday, according to the report.

"If everything goes well with Jonathan, there's a chance he could throw an inning against Cleveland," manager Bryan Price said. "He'd obviously have to get through tomorrow's bullpen, but there's been no reason to think he's not going to pitch on the 17th."

Jonathan Broxton tossing live batting practice Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton will throw a live batting practice Tuesday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. 

Broxton is attempting to come back after elbow surgery last season. As long as Broxton is able to get through the session without any issues, he could appear in a game soon. Broxton tossed 30 2/3 innings last year, posting a 4.11 ERA. 


Jonathan Broxton throws bullpen session Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton threw close to 30 pitches in his third bullpen session of the spring Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

"He threw great. He looks like he's ready to go," manager Bryan Price said. "We have to follow a throwing protocol to get him ready for games -- throw live batting practice, facing hitters, throwing his breaking ball. There is a ways to go for that. His delivery looks good. His arm looks good. He's bouncing back really well. He doesn't have a lot of residual throwing soreness that is typical for this time of year in Spring Training."

Broxton could still be ready for opening day, though the team doesn't have a clear timetable for his return to game action.


Jonathan Broxton 'still a candidate' for opening day


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton threw off a mound Monday for the first time since undergoing elbow surgery last year. He attempted 15 pitches.

"That's all it is, another step," Broxton said, per The Cincinnati Enquirer. "You've got to keep going step-by-step and today was a big step in the right direction. No problems, didn't feel anything. I felt fine throwing, felt like I could throw it where I wanted."

Manager Bryan Price is still entertaining the notion Broxton could be ready by opening day.

"With the elbow, there's a lot of things, a lot of hurdles to get through. He has no pain, no residual soreness when he plays long toss. The logical next step is to get on the mound, he's done flat ground," Price said. "Then you start to manipulate the ball, adding cut and break to it with the breaking ball and cutter and that's a whole 'nother step that will challenge his elbow a little bit and we'll see how he responds to that. We have not resigned ourselves to him not making our opening day roster. He's still a candidate to be ready for that."


Jonathan Broxton advances to daily throwing sessions


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2014) Reds pitcher Jonathan Broxton is throwing every day this week, alternating long-toss and short-toss sessions, after throwing on alternate days last week, MLB.com reports.

Broxton is set to throw from a mound for the first time Monday. His 2013 season was cut short due to forearm surgery, but he managed to go 2-2 with a 4.11 ERA and 25:12 K:BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings last season.


Jonathan Broxton targeting Opening Day return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2014) Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton is hoping his recovery from elbow surgery will go well enough for him to be ready to pitch by Opening Day, the Cincinnati Enquirer has reported. He has been encouraged by his throwing program.

"It feels good," he said. "I haven't missed a day. The plan is to throw off the mound toward the end of February. That's the big test."

Broxton took a step back last year from a 2012 season in which he recorded 27 saves and 2.48 ERA. Pitching behind closer Aroldis Chapman in the bullpen pecking order, he managed a 4.11 ERA in 2013 and went down for several months with elbow and forward problems.
