High School: Lakeland Senior HS, Lakeland, Fla.
College: Santa Fe (Fla.) JC

Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 3rd round (95th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2009 (signed for $358,000)
Broxton was the Phillies' 29th-round pick in 2008 but didn't sign, instead attending junior college and pulling out of his Florida Atlantic football/baseball commitment. He's more of an athlete than a hitter at this piont, with raw power and good speed. He's raw defensively as well but got some late draft helium with a big performance in the NJCAA postseason. He's an average-to-plus runner with the chance of staying in center field down the line.
