Broderick passed through waivers — any other club could have claimed him but then been required to keep him on the 25-man roster for the rest of the season — but wasn’t allowed to remain in the Nationals organization after St. Louis re-claimed him.
The Nats, who initially paid $50,000 to acquire Broderick during the Winter Meetings in December, receive $25,000 back from the Cardinals.
The 24-year-old right-hander, a starter throughout his minor-league career, was in an awkward position pitching out of the Nationals’ bullpen as a long reliever. In 11 total appearances, he went 0-1 with a 6.57 ERA.
