Hitting three-hole in the Wildcat lineup, Goodwin is continually looking to do damage at the plate. He’s been a mainstay of the K-State lineup for two years and posted an .879 OPS with 11 HR and 18 doubles as a sophomore last season. He has plenty of strength in his sturdy frame at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds which produces plus raw power. Despite a high strikeout rate (23%) last season, he showed the ability to shorten his swing with two strikes and control the barrel upon this look in Round Rock. Possessing average agility and instincts Goodwin showed fringe range at shortstop. His slightly better than average arm is enough for the left side of the infield where he projects on a part-time basis. His top profile in the long-term is as an offensive second baseman or a valuable utility player. Mid Day Two is his likely landing spot, barring a major jump in either direction of his performance.


Cape Cod: Goodwin has been a mainstay of the K-State lineup for two years, and he posted an .879 OPS with 11 homers and 18 doubles as a sophomore this spring, though his strikeout rate also climbed (57 K in 204 AB). He was one of the best hitters on the Cape this summer, ranking 11th in the league with a .268 average, tying for second with 10 doubles and third with six homers (one off the league lead). Goodwin has plenty of strength in his sturdy, compact frame at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds. He has a quiet approach and shows the ability to barrel up fastballs as well as offspeed stuff; we saw the righthanded hitter pull a homer to left against a good 81 mph slider away, but he can also work inside the ball and drive it the other way. Goodwin is also a good athlete with average speed and has solid range at second, but he needs to become a more consistent defender, as evidenced by his 19 errors this spring and eight errors in 41 games this summer. He played shortstop this spring at K-State but profiles well as an offensive second baseman.


+ SS Nick Goodwin (St. Thomas Aquinas HS, KS), a Kansas State commit, is currently ranked No. 5 in the Kansas 2020 class. 6-foot-1, 180-pound, strong, athletically-built, right-handed hitting shortstop. Opened up the nightcap of Day one with a no-doubt, two-run, home-run, to deep left-center field. Also lined out sharply to center field in his second at-bat. Starts from a balanced, quiet setup, ready to hit when he steps in the box. Aggressive early and often, hunts the fastball and looks to elevate to the pull-side of the diamond. Quick, strong hands, present bat speed. High-level 2020 right-handed bat.
