Drafted in the 1st round (15th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2005 (signed for $1,570,000)
Broadway spent the first two years of his college career at Dallas Baptist, where he spun a pair of no-hitters and was part of two National Christian College Athletic Association championship teams. He transferred to Texas Christian after earning top-prospect honors in the Northwoods League last summer, and has put together a superlative season. Broadway was tied for the NCAA Division I lead in wins (12) and ranked among the leaders in ERA (1.94), strikeouts (125) and strikeouts per nine innings (12.1). He succeeds more with polish than overwhelming stuff. His fastball is just average, but he has a plus curveball that he can locate in and out of the strike zone. His delivery and command are solid, and his makeup is a huge asset. He's developing a changeup and is gaining more confidence in the pitch. He has a strong, lean frame and there may be a little more velocity in him. The statistics-oriented Red Sox are believed to be targeting Broadway with one of their three supplemental first-round picks.
