Top Niko Goodrum News

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Called up by Tampa Bay

    The Rays recalled Goodrum from Triple-A Durham on Friday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    The 32-year-old will take the roster spot of Brandon Lowe, who heads to the injured list with an oblique strain. Goodrum had a 1.027 OPS through nine games for Durham and should fill a utility role while up with the Rays.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Promotion expected

    Goodrum is likely to be promoted to the major-league roster Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Goodrum joined the Rays just before Opening Day and has been playing at Triple-A Charlotte since. However, with Brandon Lowe (oblique), Taylor Walls (hip) and Jonathan Aranda (finger) all sidelined, the team needs depth along its infield. Goodrum is capable of playing any infield position besides catcher, but his best chance for playing time is likely to come at second base.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Added to 40-man roster and optioned

    The Rays selected Goodrum's contract and optioned him to Triple-A Durham on Thursday.

    Goodrum will get a spot on the Rays' 40-man roster after he was acquired from the Twins on Wednesday, but he won't be part of Tampa Bay's 26-man active roster for Thursday's season opener versus Toronto. The 32-year-old journeyman utility player has prior experience at every infield and outfield spot, so he should be a prime candidate for a call-up if the Rays' injury concerns continue to mount. Tampa Bay will open the season with five position players on the 10-day injured list.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Headed to Tampa Bay

    The Rays acquired Goodrum from the Twins on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations, selected his contract from Triple-A Durham and optioned him to Durham, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Goodrum had an assignment clause in his minor-league contract which allowed him to leave for a major-league deal elsewhere. The 32-year-old switch hitter is a good fit for a Rays club that likes to take advantage of versatility, but he'll report to their Triple-A affiliate for now.

  • Twins' Niko Goodrum: Signs minors deal with Twins

    Goodrum signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Dec. 14.

    Goodrum spent the second half of the 2023 season in the Korea Baseball Organization after opting out of his minor-league deal with the Red Sox, but he'll return stateside as organizational infield depth for Minnesota. The 31-year-old has slashed just .196/.271/.334 over his last 549 major-league plate appearances dating back to the beginning of the 2020 campaign.

  • Niko Goodrum: Signs with KBO's Lotte Giants

    Goodrum has signed with the Korea Baseball Organization's Lotte Giants, Jee-ho Yoo of South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reports.

    Goodrum will be paid $400,000 by the Giants for the remainder of the season. The 31-year-old had recently opted out of his minor-league contract with the Red Sox.

  • Niko Goodrum: Exercising opt-out clause

    Goodrum was released Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Goodrum exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Red Sox. The veteran utility player has been at Triple-A Worcester all season, where he's posted an .888 OPS with eight homers and seven steals. He won't have trouble finding a gig elsewhere, although it's not a given it will be a major-league deal.

  • Red Sox's Niko Goodrum: Has upward mobility clause

    Goodrum has an upward mobility clause in his minor-league contract with the Red Sox which would allow him to sign a major-league deal elsewhere if Boston doesn't plan to have him on the Opening Day roster, Ian Cundall of SoxProspects.com reports.

    It's worth noting is that Goodrum has an option remaining, so the Red Sox could conceivably add him to the 40-man roster but stick him at Triple-A Worcester to begin the season if he doesn't get an offer from another club. Goodrum has a career .688 OPS over parts of six major-league seasons.

  • Red Sox's Niko Goodrum: Lands with Red Sox

    Goodrum will serve as a non-roster invitee for the Red Sox this spring, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Goodrum was let go by the Astros in early September but joined Boston on a minor-league deal this week. He played in just 15 major-league games with Houston last year and hit .116 with two runs, an RBI and a stolen base.

  • Niko Goodrum: Let go by Astros

    Goodrum was released by the Astros on Friday, Kenny Van Doren of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Goodrum was designated for assignment by Houston on Thursday, and he'll become a free agent after going unclaimed on waivers. Over 15 games with Houston this year, the 30-year-old hit just .116 with two doubles, two runs, an RBI and a stolen base.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: DFA'd by Houston

    Goodrum was designated for assignment by the Astros on Thursday.

    Goodrum has gone 5-for-43 with 23 strikeouts while up with the Astros this season, and he's now lost his spot on the 40-man roster. The 30-year-old could remain with Sugar Land if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Back in action at Sugar Land

    Goodrum (hamstring) was reinstated from Triple-A Sugar Land's 7-day injured list Thursday and returned to the lineup a day later, going 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.

    A left hamstring injury had kept Goodrum out of commission at Sugar Land since June 1 before he made his return to action last week. Goodrum still retains a spot on Houston's 40-man roster, but the organization doesn't seem to have much urgency to move him back to the majors, even with utility man Aledmys Diaz (groin) landing on the 10-day IL on Wednesday.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Starts up rehab assignment

    Goodrum (hamstring) has gone 4-for-16 with two doubles, four walks, five runs, three RBI and a stolen base in six games since beginning a rehab assignment July 30 with the Astros' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate.

    Goodrum has been on Triple-A Sugar Land's 7-day injured list since June 7 with a left hamstring injury, but he appears to be on the cusp of rejoining the Astros' top affiliate. Though Goodrum retains a spot on Houston's 40-man roster, a promotion to the big club likely won't be in the cards while the Astros have all of their regular infielders healthy.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Managing left hamstring discomfort

    The Astros announced Thursday that Goodrum has been dealing with left hamstring discomfort, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Although Goodrum isn't on the injured list, he hasn't appeared in a game at Triple-A Sugar Land since June 1. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to action.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Optioned to Triple-A

    Goodrum was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Sunday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    He struck out 23 times over his last 45 plate appearances. Mauricio Dubon will replace Goodrum as a bench option going forward.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Walks, swipes bag

    Goodrum went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a 5-0 win Thursday in Minnesota.

    Goodrum started at first base and hit seventh while starting for only the third time in May. It was his first stolen base this season and only the second time he's reached via a walk. The 30-year-old struck out twice and has fanned in twenty of 41 plate appearances on the season while sporting a ghastly .128/.171/.179 batting line. Since the beginning of the 2020 season, he has struggled mightily at the plate with a .197 average and 35.9 percent strikeout rate.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Enters in fifth inning

    Goodrum went 0-for-2 with a strikeout Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Goodrum entered the game in the fifth inning after Jose Altuve (groin) was forced to exit. If Altuve is headed for another stint on the injured list -- he was activated Monday after dealing with a hamstring injury -- Goodrum would be a potential beneficiary along with Aledmys Diaz, who started at shortstop Wednesday.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Drives in first run

    Goodrum went 2-for-3 with an RBI double on Sunday against Toronto.

    Goodrum has started just five of 11 games since Jose Altuve (hamstring) has been sidelined. He's collected only three hits across 19 plate appearances since, while striking out at a 47.4 percent clip. Goodrum did deliver an RBI double -- his first run driven in of the season -- in the seventh inning to tie the game at 2-2, though he will likely see his role shrink further as Altuve is expected to be activated from the injured list Monday.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Headed for more opportunities

    Goodrum is likely to see additional starts at second base with Jose Altuve (hamstring) on the injured list, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Goodrum has had a sporadic role to begin the season, starting only four times in 12 games. Only one of those starts came at second base, though Goodrum could be the primary player at the keystone in Altuve's absence, particularly if the team prefers to keep Aledmys Diaz in a utility role. It's unclear how effective Goodrum would be with more playing time, however, as he hit just .214/.292/.359 across 325 plate appearances with Detroit in 2021.
