The Cincinnati Reds probably don';t have to do much this offseason.  They marched their way to 97 wins in 2012 and look poised to defend their National League Central crown in 2013.  However, minor moves could help pave the way to another successful season.  One of those moves could b the re-signing of Jonathan Broxton. According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports and Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Reds are talking to Broxton about a new deal, and it seems it will be a multi-year contract. Sources: #Reds in serious talks with Broxton. Expected to be multi-year deal. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) November 26, 2012 Broxton deal likely will be for at least 3 yrs. #reds — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) November 26, 2012 If the Reds do re-sign Broxton, it will add continued depth to their bullpen.  While the team was interested in slotting Aroldis Chapman in the starting rotation, Ryan Madson's injury forced the flame-throwing Cuban back into the closer role.  He dominated in that role, so the team may want to leave him there.  However, Chapman also experienced fatigue as the season wore on.  Broxton, who has been a proven closer in this league, would be a nice stop gap to protect against injuries in the bullpen. Broxton, 28, has pitched for three different teams in eight seasons.  He owns a career 3.10 ERA and has 111 saves.   He was the Royals closer when Joakim Soria went down to a blown elbow, but he was traded mid-season to the Reds.
