Washington Nationals OF Brian Goodwin was named the Arizona Fall League Player of the Week in the third week, hitting .529 (9-for-17) with two doubles, two triples, a home run, two RBIs, six runs scored, five walks and a stolen base. He leads the league in slugging (.744), extra-base hits (nine) and total bases (32), and he's second in OPS (1.299), third in runs (11) and third in home runs (three). "Some might not consider him as a power guy, but he is leading the league in slugging percentage," said Rafters manager Matt Williams. "He does have good power. The ball jumps off his bat. He is a center fielder by trade, but he can play all three outfield positions. He has good speed. He has all the things you need. He is going to be a special one for the Nationals." Goodwin is hitting leadoff in the AFL, as he did all season in the minors. He's playing center and left field for the Rafters.
