Brian Goodwin will open the 2014 season at Triple-A Syracuse.
The 23-year-old outfielder spent the entire 2013 season at Double-A Harrisburg, batting .252/.355/.407 with 19 doubles, 10 triples, 10 home runs, 19 stolen bases and 121-61 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 122 games. The Nationals have no need to rush Goodwin this season given their current big-league outfield configuration, but he could potentially join the team at some point this season in the event of an injury.

Nationals agreed to terms with supplemental first-round pick OF Brian Goodwin.

Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that his bonus is "believed to be" worth $3 million, which is obviously well above slot for the 34th pick. Goodwin, 20, spent this past season at Miami-Dade CC after leaving North Carolina due to academic ineligibility, but has plus-speed to go along with patience and developing power. Between Goodwin, Anthony Rendon, Alex Meyer and Matt Purke, the Nationals have spent approximately $16 million to sign their top four picks.
