Broxton was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies out of Lakeland Senior High School in the 29th round of the 2008 MLB Draft. He did not sign and attended Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, Florida to play baseball. Broxton was then drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the third round of the 2009 MLB draft. He was added to the team's 40-man roster on November 20, 2012. He was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in March 2014. Broxton was called up by the Pirates on September 20, 2015. Broxton was used mainly as a pinch runner, going 0-for-2 at the plate, as well as 1 stolen base and 3 runs scored.
On December 17, 2015, the Pirates traded Broxton and Trey Supak to the Milwaukee Brewers for Jason Rogers. Broxton was one of nine players competing to be the Brewers center fielder for the 2016 season. He won the competition and started on Opening Day. He had his first career multi-home run game on August 21, 2016 against the Seattle Mariners. Broxton opened the 2017 season as the Brewers starting center fielder. On July 22nd, he was sent down to AAA. In 326 plate appearances, Broxton had been hitting .218 with 14 home runs and 17 stolen bases but was leading the majors in strikeouts with 124.
On November 4, 2016 in Tampa, Broxton was arrested for misdemeanor trespassing. Broxton, who was reportedly intoxicated, refused to leave the scene of a fight despite the warnings from responding police officers.
