Nick Goody is an interesting major league pitcher. And, hopefully, he is one the Royals have been keeping an eye on. Since Goody first came up as a 24-year-old for the New York Yankees he has been able to strike guys out. After a season as a league-average middle reliever for the Yanks, he was moved to Cleveland.
In Goody’s first season with the Indians, he was excellent. He threw over 54 innings in 2017. He struck out almost 12 per 9 innings. He finished with a FIP of 3.45 and a WHIP of 1.
