Prospect Goodwin injures leg in Hagerstown tilt
NEW YORK -- Class A Hagerstown outfielder Brian Goodwin suffered a leg injury in an 8-7 victory over Lexington on Monday. It's not known how serious the injury is.

Goodwin was 6-for-16 (.375) with two home runs and eight RBIs this season.

Goodwin, a compensation pick from last year's First-Year Player Draft, received a $3.6 million bonus. He was 60-for-157 (.382) with eight home runs, 37 RBIs and 42 runs in 47 games with Miami Dade College in 2011. The left-handed-hitting Goodwin also posted a .492 on-base percentage and 16 stolen bases for the Sharks.

Goodwin is the second prospect to get hurt in less than a week. On Saturday, third baseman Anthony Rendon suffered a sprained left ankle while running the bases in a 7-2 loss to Lynchburg. X-rays were negative.

Rendon hurt the ankle in the fourth inning. After a hitting a double, Rendon was trying to score on a bloop single to center by Justin Bloxom. Rendon went down with the ankle injury after rounding third base.
