2011 MLB Draft Results: Outfielder Brian Goodwin Selected By Nationals In Compensation Round

With the No. 34 pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, the Washington Nationals select Brian Goodwin, an outfielder from Miami Dade College. The Nationals selected Goodwin with the first pick of the compensation round of the Draft. He was previously drafted in 2009 by the Chicago White Sox in the 17th round.

Goodwin is a 6'0" left handed outfielder who is known for making great contact with the ball with most of his power displayed in balls going into the gaps and leg work that can stretch a lot of standard singles into possible extra base hits. His speed makes him dangerous on the base paths and he is lightning getting out of the box down the first base line.

Goodwin, however, does not come without some baggage. The young outfielder was dismissed from his initial college, the University of North Carolina for violating university policy. Specifics are still not clear, but it was rumored he was having problems with some of the UNC coaches and players. Goodwin later came out and said it was due to academic issues and those have been long solved and he is ready to get his baseball career on the move.
