Jonathan Broxton, Ace Reliever

Jonathan Broxton over his last 10 outings has allowed one unearned run in 10.2 innings, allowing 10 baserunners while striking out 17 of the 41 batters he has faced.  Last night, Broxton became the fourth Dodger to amass 30 saves in a season, joining Eric Gagne, Todd Worrell, Jeff Shaw, and Takashi Saito.  Among major league relievers this season, Broxton ranks:

No reliever in Dodger history has more strikeouts through age 27 than Jonathan Broxton's 401 career punchouts.  By the way, Broxton is only 25.

Jonathan Broxton is one of the very best relievers in all of baseball.  I just felt the need to point that out.
