While the Royals GM Dayton Moore works the phone lines to find trades for his team, the player that may have the most value is closer Jonathan Broxton. According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, Broxton is the most likely member of the Royals to be dealt sometime between now and Tuesday's July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. In return for Broxton, the Royals would like young pitcher(s) close to making an impact at the MLB level.


The 28-year-old Broxton has posted a career-best 2.27 ERA across 35 2/3 innings of work this season. Despite his career-best ERA, Broxton is striking out less batters than he ever has (6.3 K/9) but his walk rate (3.5 BB/9) is about what it is every season. The 6-foot-4 reliever is a free-agent at season's end.
