RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Goodwin's pro debut went as well as the Nationals could have hoped as he torched Low-A pitching before getting jumped two levels (and, admittedly, closing out the year with much less impressive numbers). The club now views the 2011 supplemental pick as their center fielder of the future, and it's easy to see why given the combination of power, speed, plate discipline and defense he is capable of displaying. There are still questions to be answered in the high minors, and the Nats do not need to rush him, but if he puts together another strong performance he will be knocking on the door of the 25-man roster as a potential fourth outfielder in 2014.
Goodwin was the Nationals' sandwich-round pick in the 2011 draft and is ready to start his pro career at Low-A or High-A in 2012. There is some debate as to whether he would be best suited at the top or in the lower half of a batting order, but there is no doubt that his bat speed and plate discipline could allow him to develop into an above average hitter. His speed in center field is very impressive, but there are questions about whether he could play the position every day. Donít expect a trip to Washington until 2014.
