    View Draft Report
    Goeddel is the first player from this year's draft known to have signed for more than MLB's slot recommendation. A blue-chip prospect in high school, he needed about 24 months to recover from Tommy John surgery during his senior year at Bellarmine Prep in San Jose. He threw eight innings as a redshirt freshman in 2009, then went 2-0, 3.12 with 58 strikeouts and 23 walks in 49 innings of relief this spring, emerging as a key piece of UCLA's stellar bullpen. He came on especially strong down the stretch, catching scouts' attention in regionals and sitting in the mid-90s with a wicked 86-mph slider in the College World Series.
