MLB Trade Rumors: Rangers Pass On Jonathan Broxton, Reds Don't, According To Report

The Texas Rangers were hoping to get some pitching help on Tuesday before the trade deadline arrived. Although they still have some time to get a deal done, they will not be acquiring Kansas City Royals closer Jonathan Broxton, according to reports.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports originally reported that the Rangers -- who were tied to Broxton in talks earlier in the day -- were out on Broxton and that the Cincinnati Reds were closing in on a deal for the reliever.

Shortly thereafter, Rosenthal reported that Broxton to the Reds was a done deal.

It is unclear at this point what the Royals will be getting in return for sending Broxton to the Reds, but it is possible that his asking price was too high for the Rangers at this time.
