View Draft ReportBroussard is a big man with a big right arm. Broussard pitches with a 93-94 mph fastball and was Cal State Los Angeles' ace, going 8-3, 3.14. He did so while weighing in at 270 pounds, and is kindly described as "plump" by evaluators. Size aside, Broussard showed the ability to throw four pitches for strikes with decent command and is a better athlete than expected. He hit .318 with nine homers and 46 RBIs while playing first base on days he wasn't pitching Golden Eagles' top starter. Broussard's talent is such that evaluators feel he can be late-round steal if he eventually gets his body in order, with most believing he needs to drop 30-40 pounds off his 6-foot-3 frame.
