With all the financial uncertainty surrounding the Los Angeles Dodgers, relieving themselves of some payroll may be a wise decision.
Jonathan Broxton is set to hit free agency for the first time after this season, and there’s a strong chance he won’t be back in Dodger Blue.
He’s struggled out of the gate this season, which also may factor in a trade.
The Dodgers have young prospect Kenley Jansen waiting in the wings as the team’s future closer. Though he hasn’t experienced the success this year like he did last year, Jansen has the stuff to be a closer.
Broxton would be a hot commodity around the deadline, with many teams vying for his services.
If the MLB-controlled Dodgers are looking to shed payroll, Broxton may be the first to go.
