Jonathan Broxton is likely to sign soon according to his agent BB Abbott via Mark Hale of the New York Post. The New York Mets who are a team in need of a closer appear to be out on Broxton as Abbott told Mark Hale, “I don't think it will be New York for him.” Last week we heard as many as ten teams were showing interest in Broxton. The 27-year-old former All Star was limited in 2011 due to injury and is coming of minor elbow surgery, though he should be ready for Spring Training.  In 14 games last season, the right-hander was 1-2 with seven saves in 14 appearances. In 2011, Broxton made $7mm in the second year of his two year deal. In 2009, Broxton had a career year where he posted a 2.61 era while saving 36 games and striking 114 out along the way.
