Broderick performed well in 2010 splitting his time between Palm Beach and Springfield. He pitched with well above average command of a sinking fastball generating lots of groundballs and limiting his walks. At 6’6″, Broderick can make full use of his height to drive the ball down in the zone.
Much like the trade that sent David Carpenter to the Astros in 2010, the Cardinals have lost a farm system player who represented depth rather than a critical piece to the big league puzzle. Broderick should have an easier path to the majors in the pitching starved Nationals system where he isn’t behind guys like Lance Lynn and Brandon Dickson.
Future Redbirds wishes Brian the best of luck in his future endeavors (unless he’s playing the Cardinals).
