Jonathan Broxton fills in for Aroldis Chapman Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price went with reliever Jonathan Broxton to close out Sunday's 4-2 win vs. Milwaukee over closer Aroldis Chapman. Though, no immediate word was given for Chapman's absence during Sunday's save situation, it was eventually announced Chapman was unavailable due to a hamstring injury.

Broxton, however, proved completely capable of handling the situation, earning his sixth save following a perfect ninth inning. Broxton retired the side on nine pitches and all three hitters grounded out to infielders.

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."

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

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."

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.

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

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"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.
