Broxton has struggled over the past two seasons, seeing K's decline and BB's increase. This has been attributed to injuries/overuse, and Broxton did not pitch after May 3 last season. The Royals bullpen is already filled with guys who throw hard, although there are control issues there as well. If Broxton is anything near his peak form, it could be a real strength for Kansas City. It will be interesting to see what happens with Joakim Soria, the Royals stalwart closer who has seen in a decline in performance but is still a valuable asset due to a team-friendly contract.
