Jacob Condra-Bogan is a pitcher blessed with a big fastball and a unique backstory.  Condra-Bogan was Toronto’s 32nd round pick in 2017 from Georgia Southern, but they could not agree to terms, forcing him to play independent baseball in the frontier league.  After dominating the Frontier League, Kansas City signed him this offseason and optioned him to Low-A.  Condra-Bogan dominated Low-A competition, posting a 2.08 ERA with 39 strikeouts against only 2 walks in 26 innings pitched.  This forced a recent promotion to High-A Wilmington, in which he struggled in his only appearance.

Condra-Bogan features a 3-pitch arsenal consisting of a mid-90s fastball that can touch 98mph, along with a below-average slider and changeup.  Combined with his solid control, the fastball is a “65” pitch and scouts believe the slider could have average future potential.  He is a pure relief prospect due to mechanics and lack of a changeup.  Condra-Bogan could move quickly through Washington’s system, with a future ceiling of a 7th inning reliever and a likely outcome of an up-and-down bullpen arm.

Seems like a good return to me for Goodwin.  Assume he will be assigned to Potomac?

Get this kid to Double-A in 2019 and he's on the major-league radar. High-90s relievers with good control can be useful.
