Signed a two year deal with the Rangers, though he isn't expected to be ready at the start of the 2013 season following April 2012 TJ surgery.

Herrera seems to be the sexy pick, Emjay. I just don't think, with the depth of that KC pen, he'll get that shot. He started in A ball last year, and while he pitched great and jumped three levels and made the majors, not sure the Royals will put that pressure on the 22-year old considering their other options.

Jeffress has no idea where the ball is going. Broxton is done. Crow is a decent bet but I like Kelvin Herrera by June 1 to have the job.

Crow is good, but I saw Jeffress in Arizona and he was throwing strikes, and he continues to do so in camp thus far. He's an archetypal closer, big, a little crazy and hard throwing, and while it may be too early, maybe all he needs is to be trusted.

The Royals announced an MRI has shown damage in the ulnar collateral ligament of Soria's right elbow. I am no doctor, but that does not sound promising.

Broxton seems like the logical choice to close if Soria is out for a period of time, but I agree with the Toz - not so sure that is given. Personally, I am big Crow believer.

Why is everyone here talking like Soria is a goner? Is it his choice of words when he left? I'd say the price has to drop on him but he'd still fetch a decent speculative price to return and save games.

I wouldn't invest too much in Broxton to be honest. I think this is why the Royals obtained him - in case things with Soria's elbow were not right - but I cannot say he is a guaranteed closer. This is a hard bullpen to corner.

trying to decide how much to invest in Broxton. First FAAB tonight, deep mixed. Problem is, don't even know if he is setup. There's Holland, Crow, Collins, and apparently someone named Herrera that I don't know.

Disinclined to bid aggressively as I don't think we have enough info to ignore that Broxton could not hold off Javy Guerra, whom we have all but dethroned before the season even starts.

I was hoping to grab Broxton cheap.

Left the game today with a sore elbow. Bad news for Soria and the Royals. Is it good news for Jonathan Broxton or Greg Holland or even Kelvin Herrera, to get right to the point?
