RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Goeddel was taken by the Phillies with the first pick in December’s Rule 5 Draft, meaning that he will have to stay on the roster all season if they want to keep his rights. Given the Phillies’ lack of competent outfield depth at the big league level, Goeddel certainly has a shot at carving out a role. He will be competing with Peter Bourjos, Cody Asche and Darnell Sweeney for at-bats in the early going, so the bar to clear for playing time should be quite low. Last year at Double-A he had a 76 percent success rate on stolen-base attempts, and he hit 12 home runs with 10 triples in 123 games, so he has some tools to work with. Transferring his .279 average and .350 OBP from Double-A to the advanced pitching of the big leagues will be the biggest challenge for the 23-year-old. Goeddel is worth a flier in deeper formats thanks to his impressive tools and a strong approach.
