News: The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired Broxton from the Cincinnati Reds for two players to be named. Impact: NL Central-leading Milwaukee announced the move to bolster its bullpen before Sunday's series finale against the San Francisco Giants. The 30-year-old Broxton is 4-2 with a 1.86 ERA and seven saves in 51 appearances this season, and he will be called upon to help set up for closer Francisco Rodriguez.(STATS, 3:39pm)

News: Broxton was traded to the Brewers on Sunday in exchange for two players to be named later, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Impact: Broxton will strengthen a Milwaukee bullpen for the stretch run in 2014, but he's also under contract for the 2015 season and has a mutual option for 2016. He will likely take on an eighth-inning role for the Brewers with Francisco Rodriguez firmly entrenched as the team's closer, but could serve as the closer next season, as Rodriguez is on just a one-year deal. Though his strikeout rate has fallen back significantly since his peak years with the Dodgers, Broxton has been extremely reliable as a setup man for Aroldis Chapman this season, possessing a 1.86 ERA and 1.01 WHIP over 48.1 innings.(RotoWire, )

News: Broxton was shaky for the second outing in a row Wednesday against the Cubs, giving up a run on three hits while allowing both of his inherited runners to score. Impact: Broxton gave up rockets to the first two batters he faced before rallying to get out of the inning. But he was helped in large part by the Cubs' Starlin Castro failing to get to second base on a ball hit off the center field wall -- Castro watched the ball nearly all the way up the first base line, thinking it was going out. After that, Broxton settled down, picking up a strikeout and an all-important double play that wouldn't have been otherwise possible. So instead of a blown save, Broxton got his 21st hold of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Broxton earned a shaky save Sunday against the Braves, allowing a hit and two walks before finally recording the final out on a ground ball. Impact: Broxton was pitching on the third day in a row, which may explain why he was so wild. He was pressed into service with a three-run lead, two outs and a runner on base because Aroldis Chapman was unavailable, having pitched extensively the two previous days.(RotoWire, )
