I had Goeddel ranked #33 in this year's Top 41 Mets prospects. He was outstanding in May in Savannah in 2011, working in the low 90s as part of a four-pitch arsenal. On some nights his slider looked like a big league offering. A sore shoulder sidelined him in June and July and he struggled to find his feel when he returned. He looks headed for St. Lucie to begin the year.
Where other young pitchers have a tendency to rush their deliveries, Goeddel felt that at times he became too slow and lost his rhythm.
