Goodwin went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Padres. He got the start in right field and hit second while Bryce Harper received a rest day, and Goodwin was able to make a contribution. The 26-year-old is hitting .250/.286/.400 in 21 plate appearances since being called up, and he should remain the Nats' fourth outfielder with Adam Eaton (knee) out unless the front office brings in some help at the trade deadline.
Goodwin was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. Goodwin is back with the big club just a day after being optioned to Syracuse. He was recalled to take the place of Chris Heisey (biceps), who was placed on the disabled list. Goodwin should serve as the primary backup center fielder for Michael Taylor.
Goodwin was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. With a roster spot needed for Tuesday's starter, Joe Ross, Goodwin found himself as the roster casualty. Goodwin slashed just .188/.235/.313 across 10 games with the big club before being sent back to Syracuse. He'll stick around the minors until the Nats need another outfielder.
Goodwin is batting second and playing left field Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com. The outfielder is subbing for nearly 38-year-old Jayson Werth during the Nationals' day game. Manager Dusty Baker said he likes plugging in Goodwin in the two-hole because he can run and makes contact, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post passed along. Because Goodwin is hitting so high in the order, perhaps there's a bit of sleeper value here in DFS against wild Pirates right-hander Tyler Glasnow.
Goodwin was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. The Nationals will swap out reserve outfielders on the 25-man roster, as Goodwin replaces Rafael Bautista, who was optioned to Syracuse in a corresponding move. After slashing .256/.327/.367 across 103 plate appearances at Triple-A this season, Goodwin is expected to serve as the primary backup to Michael Taylor, who has seen the bulk of the starts in center field since Adam Eaton (knee) suffered a likely season-ending ACL tear April 28.
