Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Goeddel, the first pick in the 2015 Rule 5 Draft, spent all of last season on the active roster but received minimal playing time. After spending most of April on the bench, manager Pete Mackanin gave him a brief run as a starter from early May through mid-June. He was solid during that stretch, hitting .260 with three homers and a .755 OPS, but he started to slump in late June and ended up with just 72 more at-bats from July until the end of the season. His season ended early after he suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by a pitch in late September. Goeddel figures to open this season at Triple-A after missing a year of development by jumping from Double-A to the majors. He could see time with the Phillies later in the year, and would be worth a look in deep leagues as a potential source of stolen bases, having swiped more than 20 bags in each of his minor league seasons since being drafted in 2011.
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.
