Goins appears to be on track to make his return on he's eligible to come off the DL on Sunday, MLB.com reports. Goins has been out since June 29 when he experienced tightness in his right forearm during a rare pitching appearance in a game against the Indians. Goins began a rehab appearance with Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday and he's eligible to come off the DL on Sunday for the final game of the Jays' series in Oakland. However, he was playing poorly before hitting the DL, and middle-infielders Troy Tulowitzki and Devon Travis are healthy again, which means Goins won't have much fantasy value.
Goins (forearm) will compete in his first rehab game Thursday with Triple-A Buffalo. Goins is likely to return to the club by the time he is eligible to be activated on July 17, after being placed on the 15-day disabled list with forearm tightness at the beginning of this month. The 28-year-old second baseman has played in 58 games for the Blue Jays this year, hitting .176/.216/.308 with three home runs and 12 RBI.
Goins (forearm) will begin to throw again Saturday, freelance writer John Lott reports. Goins was placed on the 15-day DL on July 2 after making an appearance on the mound during a 19-inning game against the Indians. He went down with forearm tightness, but should be able to return by the time he is eligible to be activated on July 17.
Goins (forearm) has been placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday with forearm tightness, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet reports. Goins made an appearance on the mound during Friday's 19-inning affair with the Indians, and his forearm tightness could probably be traced back to his time on the hill. He has slowly been phased out of the starting lineup in recent weeks, having only started one game since June 17.
Goins scored as a pinch-runner on a wild pitch in Wednesday's game against the Rockies. The infielder is seemingly being faded out of the Jays' game plan altogether. After being the starting second baseman for a majority of the season, Goins has only started in one game since June 17, and he's only played in five of the team's last ten contests. With Devon Travis and Troy Tulowitzki both healthy for the first time this year, Goins spot on the roster is a delicate one to say the least.
