Broadway showed more velocity than Michael Bowden early in the spring, pitching at 92-94 before dipping to 89-90 later in the season, and probably will have more in the future. He easily could add another 40 pounds to his frame, and one scout says he could see Broadway throwing 97 mph one day. Broadway probably will go three rounds or so behind Bowden in the draft, however, because he's less polished. His breaking ball is well-below-average and lacks consistency because his arm slot wanders. He also lacks deception. Scouts love his projectable body, athleticism and arm action, so he won't get past the fourth or fifth round. His high school competition isn't strong, but he proved himself by performing well at last summer's Area Code Games.
