The Blue Jays and 4-6 other teams have shown interest in Jonathan Broxton and asked for his medical records, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick (Twitter links). The Mets have not yet inquired on the 27-year-old free agent. Broxton had arthroscopic elbow surgery in September and plans to start throwing in two weeks.
It appears likely that Broxton will sign a one-year deal with performance incentives, as I explained in September when I examined his free agent stock. Broxton’s 2011 season ended in May after just 12 2/3 innings with a 5.68 ERA and nearly as many walks (9) as strikeouts (10).
