We've appreciated him for quite some time, but Alyson Footer gets on board the Goebbert Wagon:
He wasn’t on my target list when I arrived to town yesterday, but it bears noting that outfielder/first baseman Jacob Goebbert is receiving rave reviews from the people who work for and cover the Hooks. The 23-year-old is hitting .308 (60-for-195) with 15 doubles, three triples and four home runs with 24 RBIs. He also was named Hooks Player of the Month after compiling a .984 fielding percentage with six outfield assists.
Dude is a player for @cchooks, but doesn’t get enough respect from #Astros brass.”
Shortstop Johnathan Villar also gets some love in the notebook.
