FLASH (UPDATE): Prospect RHP Erik Goeddel Injured During Drill

News emerged late afternoon that right handed pitcher Erik Goeddel was struck on the left side of his face by a baseball during a drill in the Mets STEP program. Mets officials stated that Goeddel may need surgery which could possibly derail his 2013 season.

Mets fans will remember that 2 years ago another prospect, Sean Ratliff, was struck in the face by a line drive foul ball that required multiple facial surgeries and ended his career when he couldn't recover his vision.

Best of Luck to Goeddel and here's to hoping for a quick and easy recovery if surgery is needed.
