4. Brian Goodwin, OF
DOB: 11/2/90
Height/Weight: 6-1/195
Bats/Throws: L/L
Drafted/Signed: 1st round, 2011, Miami Dade South CC
2011 Stats: DNP
Tools Profile: Five-tool outfielder.

Year in Review: Winding college career went from North Carolina to the junior college ranks, but tools earned him a $3 million bonus in August.
The Good: Goodwin has plenty of tools. He has bat speed and the raw strength to project for average power. He's a plus-plus burner who covers plenty of ground in center field and has a plus arm. He has a good idea at the plate and understands the value of drawing walks.
The Bad: Goodwin is still a bit raw. He focuses more on pulling balls than making contact, letting his speed and natural strength work for him. He often needs his speed in the outfield to make up for bad jumps.
Ephemera: Goodwin was a 17th-round pick by the White Sox in 2009 out of Rocky Mount High School in North Carolina. None of the four players drafted out of the school reached the big leagues, but their athletic program has produced several NFL and NBA players, including Buck Williams and Phil Ford.
Perfect World Projection: Star-level outfielder.
Fantasy Impact: A potential stud who fills up all five categories.
Path to the Big Leagues: Goodwin has plenty of potential but will likely need to play at each level while he develops, starting a Low-A Hagerstown.
ETA: 2014
