Reds trade Jonathan Broxton to Milwaukee

Joe Robbins

Kind of unexpected news from the Reds today:

Broxton puts a damper on the Reds' superbullpen for 2015, but will take $9M off the books, freeing up valuable space there. The fact that this is the first move Walt has made all year shows his mentality a bit, in that he's looking to start to set the team up for the 2015 season. Finally.

Personally, it'll be bittersweet, as Broxton has been one of the few Reds actually pitching well this year in the bullpen. It'll especially be rough to see him go to a division rival. But the salary space will be worth it.

What do you think of the move?
