Cardinals Released Jonathan Broxton & Recalled John Gant From Triple-A Memphis

In the midst of a 3-10 slide, the Cardinals have begun to feel the heat. It’s being reflected now by an aggressive rebuild of the bullpen.

The Cardinals made a roster move Wednesday to increase the flexibility -- and potentially the strength -- of their bullpen. The team recalled right-hander John Gant from Triple-A Memphis and gave right-hander Jonathan Broxton his unconditional release from the club in a corresponding move.

The walk appeared to be slower than normal for Jonathan Broxton as he exited the field after allowing 2-runs in the 9th inning last night. Clearly frustrated by his outing, it appeared the weight of the world sat on the shoulders of the St. Louis Cardinals reliever. Maybe he had an idea of the decision made today.
