Profile: Jonathan Broxton once closed a bunch of games. Those days are over. He's not even the most relevant Broxton in baseball anymore thanks to Keon. Last season, Broxton struck out close to a batter an inning, which is fine. He gave up a home run once every nine innings, which is tolerable. He walked nearly 10% of the hitters he faced which is bad for a reliever who isn't really good at everything else. In 2016, Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal struggled and Seung Hwan Oh got the closer job. Oh returns as closer, as do Rosenthal and lefty Kevin Siegrist. The Cardinals also signed Brett Cecil to a big free agent deal this winter. He had a dozen holds last season, and he might get that again, but it will probably come with an ERA close to four and little to no chance of a closer gig. Broxton will turn 33 this season, and he could work some magic into a low ERA if he gives up fewer homers and walks or the defense behind him gets better, but its tough to see him gaining a really important role in St. Louis' bullpen this season. (Craig Edwards)

The Quick Opinion: Broxton hasn't been a full-time closer since 2012 and that isn't going to change this year. Not much to see here, unless you like a really wide set of pants.
