This week’s Boom or Bust centers around B-Mets right-hander Erik Goeddel, who was our 24th round pick in the 2010 MLB Draft. Goeddel, who is slated to start the B-Mets game later today, is 8-3 this season with a 3.94 ERA in 89.0 innings. He has struck out 86 while walking 39. Goeddel has a history of strong numbers in the minor leagues, coming off a 3.41 ERA in Advanced-A St. Lucie in ’12 and a 3.24 ERA in Savannah and the GCL team in ’11.

Following four straight winless starts, Goeddel has been flying since May, chalking up a 5-0 win/loss mark before the halfway point of the season. Over that span, Goeddel had a 3.46 ERA, held opponents to a .216 batting averaged and fanned 8.2 batters per nine innings thrown. The B-Met program cites an altered grip on Goeddel’s change-up as a big part of the improvement. Goeddel is noted for an effective breaking ball, too. He’s second on the team
