From: - http://www.brewerfan.net/ViewAmateurPlayerProfile.do?playerId=685&draftId=5 - Goeddel is all about polish, showing an advanced knowledge of pitching and a well-rounded arsenal. His fastball sits in the 89-93 range, and he has touched the mid-90s on occasion. He commands his fastball very well, and mixes in a sharp curveball and a nice sinking changeup. When his fastball and curveball are working together for him he records outs in bunches while maximizing pitch counts. He has a slender, projectable build with a strong mid-section and well-defined upper legs. He employs a slow, deliberate windup that offers a fair amount of deception while lulling hitters throughout his delivery. Goeddel has committed to play at UCLA.
7-7-10 from: - http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/draft/?p=2577 Baseball America has confirmed that UCLA righthander Erik Goeddel has agreed to terms with the Mets, who drafted him as a 24th-round pick. MLB Trade Rumors reported the deal is believed to be worth just less than $500,000, but BA has yet to confirm the bonus. It is certain to be an over-slot bonus, however, which is significant because no player has officially signed an above-slot deal yet in 2010, and the Mets aren't known for bucking the slot recommendations of the commissioner's office. A blue-chip prospect in high school, Goeddel needed about 24 months—longer than usual—to recover from Tommy John surgery his senior year of high school. He threw eight innings as a redshirt freshman in 2009, then went 2-0, 3.12 with 58 strikeouts and 23 walks in 49 innings of relief this spring, emerging as a key piece of UCLA's stellar bullpen. He came on especially strong down the stretch, catching scouts' attention in regionals and sitting in the mid-90s with a wicked 86 mph slider in the College World Series.
