Tyrell Godwin Report

Tyrell Godwin, OF, Washington Nationals
Drafted 91st Overall (3rd Rd), 2001 Draft, U of North Carolina
Bats L/Thros R
25 YO, 6'0", 200 lbs

Godwin is a poor man's Joey Gathright. He has speed and marginal plate discipline, and no power whatsoever. He's destined to be a 5th outfielder, pinch running and coming in as a late innings defensive replacement. He hit .253/.355/.326 with 21 doubles, 7 triples, 6 home runs, 52 walks, and 110 K's in 521 at bats for New Hampshire. He stole 42 bases while being caught 12 times. Defensively, he's a flycatcher with a lot of range and a good idea of how to play out there. He's nothing I'm going to get excited about. He's more Peter Bergeron than Bobby Abreau.

ETA: Opening Day
1 1/2 Stars
