Broadway enters his first season with the Somerset Patriots and first in the Atlantic League. The 6’5” righty appeared in 25 games spread across two seasons (2015-’16) as a relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants. There, Broadway struck out 17 batters and finished seven ballgames over 22.2 innings of work.
The Paducah, Kentucky native was originally a fourth round draft pick by the Atlanta Braves in 2005. He spent the first seven years of his professional career in the Braves organization before making stops with the San Diego Padres, Washington Nationals and ultimately the Giants. His best professional season came with Triple-A Sacramento (Giants) in 2015, where he went 2-0 with a 0.93 ERA, 13 saves and 64 strikeouts over 48.1 innings of work, earning a mid-season promotion.
Nicknamed “Bone Crusher,” Broadway has since spent time back in the Nationals organization, along with the Tampa Bay Rays and Kansas City Royals systems. He most recently split his 2018 season between Double-A Montgomery (Rays) and Triple-A Omaha (Royals). He combined to go 6-3 with two saves and 61 strikeouts over 49.1 innings in his two 2018 stops.
The Pope County High School (Golconda, Illinois) alumnus has won 37 games with 30 saves and 552 strikeouts over his 14-year minor league career, mainly as a relief pitcher.
