Broadway gets invitation to Jays’ spring training

Michael Broadway keeps climbing the ladder.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound righthander from Pope County, Ill., agreed to a 2014 minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, with an invitation to attend Major League spring training.

Broadway, 26, split time between double-A Harrisburg and triple-A Syracuse in the Washington Nationals’ system last season. He finished 2-1 with six saves and a 2.45 earned run average in 30 relief appearances. 

Broadway was originally a fourth-round selection by Atlanta in 2005. He has a 28-24 record with a 4.36 ERA over nine minor league seasons.

About Gordon Engelhardt

Many moons ago, I was a semipro baseball pitcher and my love for the grand old game continues unabated. I was lucky enough to cover the White Sox in the 1983 ALCS and the Cubbies in the 1984 NLCS while living in northern Illinois. I have covered several Cardinals games, but never in postseason.
