Todd Farino@truegurufarinoCorrespondent IJanuary 20, 2010

Team: LA Dodgers

Projections: 43-7-2.21-0.99-110 (SV-WIN-ERA-WHIP-K)

Average Draft Position: 71st pick

Recommended Draft Round: 5

Team Saves Projection: 48

Injury Risk/Stability: 8/9

Top 50 Rank: No. 2


Jonathan Broxton had a rough second half last year, and because of that, a high percentage of owners have lost faith in him. Broxton was my highest-rated closer last year, and he is highly rated again.

Broxton's issues began shortly after injuring his toe, and the logic suspects his toe impacted his pitching. In 2010, Broxton is healthy, and ready to become the most dominant closer in baseball.

Remember, at 25, Broxton has room to improve, and should be better then he already has been. Have confidence in drafting a healthy Jonathan Broxton. He will emerge as one of the most dominating closers of 2010.

The True Guru Draft Strategy: Broxton is a great take in the fifth round.  If you feel pressure, take him in the fourth.  In either round, you're getting a No. 1 closer for your fantasy bullpen.
