First baseman Ryan McBroom began his professional career in 2014. He was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 36th round of the 2013 amateur draft, but did not sign. He was then taken by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 15th round of the 2014 amateur draft and inked a contract.
He began his career with a .297/.339/.502 slash line with 11 home runs and 59 RBI for the Vancouver Canadians in 2014. In 2015, he hit .315/.387/.482 with 12 home runs, 39 doubles and 90 RBI in 127 games for the Lansing Lugnuts. He was the Midwest League's Most Valuable Player. Between the Dunedin Blue Jays and New Hampshire Fisher Cats in 2016, he hit .266/.318/.455 with 22 home runs, 85 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
He was a Mid-Season All-Star in 2014, 2015 and 2016, a MiLB.com Organization All-Star in 2015 and a Post-Season All-Star in 2015 and 2016. On July 23, 2017, he was traded by the Blue Jays to the New York Yankees in return for Rob Refsnyder. He played in the Yankees organization until August 31, 2019 when he was traded to the Kansas City Royals for future considerations (which turned out to be only a sum of money). The Royals brought him up to the big leagues when rosters expanded in September and he made his debut on September 3rd, starting at first base and going 1 for 3 with a walk in a 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers. He hit .293 in 23 games the rest of the way, splitting his time between right field and first base. He hit his first major league homer on July 31, 2020, a solo shot off Dallas Keuchel of the Chicago White Sox.
