Jonathan Broxton

I had mentioned Jonathan Broxton last week after the Gagne news broke.

I was checking various minor leaguers and how they have fared so far, and Broxton was noteworthy. He has pitched 3 innings for AAA Las Vegas and allowed no runs and 3 hits. He hasn't walked a batter yet, either. Those are very nice numbers but what stood out was his seven strikeouts.

Out of nine outs, seven were by strikeout. I wouldn't be surprised to see him garnering the hype that surrounded Fernando Cabrera this off-season.

(FWIW, Brandon Wood is mashing in AA, and Eric Patterson looks like he will be JD Drew to his brother Corey's Tim Drew.)
