He pounded the zone and worked uptempo with a whippy-quick arm and putaway slider that allowed him to dominate.


Now, a full year later, Goss has vaulted himself into one of the top prospects in the 2019 class. The wiry-athletic, 6-foot-3, 185-pound right-hander was noticeably stronger in the lower-half, utilizing the same dynamic delivery as he challenged hitters for seven shutout innings. His fastball was up to 94 mph on multiple occasions before settling in at 91-93 before dipping slightly to 88-91 in the final frame.
