Mets Spring Training Video: Erik Goeddel Throws A Bullpen

Chris McShane

Mets prospect Erik Goeddel threw a bullpen session on Monday, February 25.

Right before Domingo Tapia threw his bullpen session on Monday, February 25, Erik Goeddel threw one of his own. Ranked the Mets' thirty-ninth best prospect by Rob Castellano, here's what he looked like.

Here's what Rob had to say about Goeddel:

It was a solid 2012 season for the former 2010 24th -round steal out of UCLA. It's tough to complain about a 3.09 FIP and an 8+ strikeouts per nine in his first exposure to High-A. Still, the slender righty left a little to be desired, especially in the second half when he posted a 4.14 ERA. The strikeout totals were still there, and his control is fine; the main issue is inconsistency, as his strong slider/curve combo disappeared at times. Even worse, a fastball that flashed mid-90s as a collegian was regularly in the 89-92 mph range for the Mets. To me, Goeddel's profile screams future reliever as he flashes the ability to blow away hitters with a very polished repertoire but seems to lack the build/durability to be able to hold his stuff over the course of a full season.
