BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2012 A second-round 2010 pick out of a Georgia high school, Goodrum shook off a dismal professional debut and went on a late-season tear (.341/.438/.489 in August, compared to .224/.268/.276 prior) to finish with decent numbers at Elizabethton. Athletic but very raw, Goodrum has an outstanding arm, raw power, speed and a whole lot of projection on his lean frame. Few think he'll stick at shortstop in the long run, but whether he winds up a third base, center field, or right field will depend upon how his skills and his body develop in the coming years.
