2011 MLB Mock Draft: Will Twins Win With Brian Goodwin As 30th Selection?
2011 MLB Mock Draft Gives Minnesota Twins CF Brian Goodwin With No. 30 Pick
Minnesota will make its first selection of the 2011 MLB Draft near the end of the first-round. This team usually steers clear of high school players early on, with the exception of that Mauer guy in 2001. That will be the case with this draft. They are on a few guys who should be available when they pick, but Brian Goodwin is the best of the bunch.
Goodwin does have star potential, and he projects to have five-tools at the big league level. He won’t wow you with any one thing that he does, though he does do everything well.
He can hit for average with some power and has good plate discipline. He has good speed and has an average arm, but he doesn’t get good reads in center. If that doesn’t change in the minors, he could wind up moving to a corner outfield position.
