RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jared Goedert.
Goedert's chances at earning a spot on the Opening Day roster went up in smoke when he pulled an oblique muscle and ended up on the 60-day DL. He was sent to Triple-A Columbus upon his return, hitting .271 with 15 homers in 79 games. That's a good indication of his skill set as he's always hit for merely adequate power for a third baseman throughout his minor league career. He was removed from the team's 40-man roster and a change of scenery would likely do him some good. If not, he's likely ticketed for a return trip to Columbus to give the organization some depth at the position.
Goedert rebounded after a terrible 2009 season with a .283/.358/.522 line across stops at Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus in 2010. His timing was impeccable as the Indians have a gaping hole at third base at the moment with Goedert and Jayson Nix being the likely in-house candidates. He struggled a bit after a hot start at Triple-A, but he'll have a chance to win the starting job unless the Indians bring in some outside help this winter. Long term, Goedert faces an uphill battle to secure the job as prospect Lonnie Chisenhall is ascending through the Cleveland system.
He raked against much younger competition at Low-A to start the season (.364/.475/.715) before a mid-season promotion to High-A. There, he struggled with a shoulder injury early and hit just .256 with four home runs in 35 games before catching fire in August (.426 with all four homers), indicating that the shoulder may have been the problem. You can probably ignore his Low-A stats, as college hitters from established programs should be able to slap around 19- and 20-year-old kids. He's behind Wes Hodges on the organizational depth chart at the hot corner but has seen some time at second base in each of his minor league seasons. If he sticks at second base his bat could be of some value.
