 Career

JJ Goss played baseball throughout his young age, but professionally he made it in this field in 2019, where Ray signed him for $2.05 million for Tampa Bay which was the slot value for his Competitive Balance Round A pick, and made nine occurrence in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League, recording a 5.82 ERA with 16 strikeouts and only two walks in 17 innings.

JJ Goss was then invited to the Rays’ instructional league camp last fall, giving him a chance to pitch in front of their staff despite losing what would have been his first entire season to the pandemic. During his pitch, his fastball touches lows-90s and 95mph. Then the institute gave JJ Goss a chance to play for them as he would improve over time.

Turning point

JJ Goss’s career got a new way immediately he was signed by Ray for Tampa Bay for a huge amount of money. From there he got proper exposure, and he continues to develop his game skill every day.

Goss repeats his mechanics well and fills up the zone with control, command, and understanding that is considered advanced for his age and experience. There’s still a long way to go keeping in mind his pro career only just began before 2020 kept him from pitching most of the year, but he has the arsenal, delivery, and advanced feel to break out and reach his ability as a Major League starter.

According to BA, Goss was previously looked as a projectable strike-thrower, but his stuff has refine this spring. They’re not distinctly comparable, but that aspect of his report reminds me of Liberatore last year.

He now throws in the low-90s, and he can get vigorous to maintain and add to that velocity. He already had a feel for an elevated slider and changeup.

With those improvements, he should definately be a first-round pick. He’s the kind of pitcher team. You are looking for more and more in the draft now. It’s fine that he doesn’t throw a high-speed fastball. He can grow into some more velocity, and his secondary pitches are already promising.
