Jonathan Broxton (forearm) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.
We hope you cracked your FAAB piggy bank over the weekend because Broxton will immediately slot into the Reds' closer role, according to manager Bryan Price. The big right-hander struggled with his command last season which was probably due to the injury, but he did boost his strikeouts which is certainly a positive. The plan is to have him handle ninth-inning responsibilities until Aroldis Champman returns and from there he'll slot in as a primary set-up man. His short-term value gets a big boost with the saves but even afterwards, he'll have significant value in leagues which also count holds. ANALYST: Howard Bender
