Jonathan Broxton close to signing, won’t return to Dodgers

Jonathan Broxton’s agent told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that the rehabbing right-hander is close to signing and has ruled out returning to the Dodgers.

According to agent B.B. Abbott “he had multiple suitors and we should have something tentative in the next few days.”

Earlier this offseason Broxton was said to be open to staying in Los Angeles and Abbott admitted that he had some talks with the Dodgers, but apparently they never advanced very far.

Broxton last pitched on May 3 and underwent minor elbow surgery in September, which along with his struggles dating back to mid-2010 make it likely the once-dominant closer will have to take an incentive-laden one-year deal.
