Reds trade Jonathan Broxton to Brewers

The Reds have traded relief pitcher Jonathan Broxton to division rivals the Milwaukee Brewers.

Announced on the teams Twitter account, Broxton will be sent to Milwaukee in return for two players to be named later.

Trading Broxton will free up $9M dollars heading into next season.

Broxton was one of the most reliable Reds out of the bullpen posting a 1.87 ERA in 48.1 innings with 21 holds and seven saves.
