Ryan McBroom – 1B

Traded to the New York Yankees in exchange for  UTIL Rob Refsnyder – July/23/2017

A 15th-round pick for the Blue Jays back in 2014, Ryan McBroom spent roughly three seasons in the Jays organization before being shipped off to the Yankees organization. He made it AA New Hampshire at the time of the trade sporting and was sporting a .723 OPS through 346 at-bats.

McBroom would be traded to the Kansas City Royals in late 2019 and would make his MLB debut days later, amassing a .293/.361/.360 slash line with six RBI and a .721 OPS through 23 games that season. Over the past two seasons, the righty batter flirted with the Royals roster but was never able to fully hang onto a spot, eventually being released this past offseason in order to sign overseas with the Hiroshima Carp in the Nippon Professional Baseball league.

Through 85 games with the active roster, McBroom owns a .286/.369/.463 slash line with 12 home runs, 52 RBI, and a .832 OPS through 311 at-bats
