Outfielder Jake Goebbert's junior season ended April 12, when he slammed into an outfield wall and lacerated his kidney. He's a 6-foot, 205-pounder with a good approach, a quality lefthanded bat and gap power. He has some arm strength but his lack of speed will limit him to left field or first base, and he may not have enough home run pop to project as a regular at those spots. He'll be able to play for Harwich in the Cape Cod League, allowing teams to track him as a summer follow.
