Red Sox Free Agency 2011: Jonathan Broxton Heading To Red Sox?

Jonathan Broxton has pitched his final game with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Broxton's agent, BB Abbott, told the Los Angeles Times that the free agent veteran reliever wouldn't return to L.A. and is "close to moving" elsewhere.

One of the potential destinations could be the Boston Red Sox, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN. In addition to the Red Sox, the Cincinnati Reds, Tampa Bay Rays, Minnesota Twins and Miami Marlins are also in the running for Broxton.

Broxton, a closer, has a record of 25-20 record and a career 3.19 ERA. In 386 career games, Broxton has 84 saves and owns a WHIP of 1.232. In 2011, Broxton was 1-2 with a 5.68 ERA, the second worst of his career, and only seven saves in 14 appearances. His best season came in 2009 when he went 7-2 with a 2.61 ERA and a career-high 36 saves.
