On Wednesday afternoon, the KC Royals made it official: free agent reliever Jonathan Broxton was a Royal. He donned his new Royals #51 jersey during a press conference and talked about his offseason hunting trip with manager Ned Yost and outfielder Jeff Francoeur. Apparently they were good salesmen.
It seems like Broxton has been around forever, but is just 27 years old. He is also coming off offseason elbow surgery and down seasons with the LA Dodgers. The soft-spoken Georgian talked about fitting in with the young Royals and trying to bring experience. You can check out his press conference HERE.
