07/29/2013 - College PREP - Gaffney, SC Broderick is a lean OF that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 7.22 60 time. He utilizes his quick, athletic feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls through fluid action. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to work on getting behind balls more and play through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program and improve footwork to throw. At the plate, Gaither is a switch hitter that is slightly better from the right side. He shows a squared setup with balance. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path and he works to stay inside, utilizing all fields. Barrel accuracy is a plus with the baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Swing path gets long from the left side. Power numbers from both sides will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Broderick has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
