FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: DODGERS REMOVE JONATHAN BROXTON FROM CLOSER ROLE, WILL SHARE GIG WITH VICENTE PADILLA AND HONG-CHI KUO


The Los Angeles Dodgers have removed closer Jonathan Broxton from the closer role for now and GM Ned Colletti claims that he will share chances going forward with Vicente Padilla and Hong-Chi Kuo.  Kuo is due to come off the DL on Friday but has seen a drop in velocity and Padilla has never pitched much in relief.  Still Broxton has been so shaky this season, the club decided it needed to shake it up.

Analysis:  This is one big mess here and who knows where it will go.  I dont buy the Broxton sharing gig.  Kuo is the guy I would add as he proved last season he could do the job but he is dealing with his own issues with velocity and control problems as he recovers from a back injury.
