David Goforth turned in 10.2 horrible innings at the major league level, allowing 13 earned runs, three homers and 22 baserunners before he was swiftly returned to Triple-A Colorado Springs. There, Goforth walked over six batters per nine innings and struggled his way to a 4.91 ERA. He owns a 6.11 ERA and 4.86 FIP over 35.1 innings for the Brewers in the past two seasons, and with his lack of impressive numbers in the minors to back it up, it should come as no surprise that Goforth was outrighted off Milwaukee's 40-man roster. At 28 years old, he will struggle to get more chances to carve out a major league career.
Goforth was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday. Goforth was designated for assignment in late November, and this seals his fate as he'll head to the minors to continue acting as organizational bullpen depth. He does have some big league experience to his credit, but the right-hander's numbers in the majors have been nothing to call home about, which will likely limit his ceiling to that of a middle reliever.
Goforth was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Wednesday. Goforth allowed 13 earned runs in 10.2 innings with the Brewers in 2016, which when combined with his 4.91 ERA at Triple-A Colorado Springs, made him a clear candidate to be taken off the 40-man roster. If he clears waivers, he's likely headed toward another stint in Colorado Springs.
Goforth was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday. Goforth appeared in 3.0 innings during his short stint with the Brewers, and posted a 15.0 ERA and 2.67 WHIP. He'll head back down to the minors to make some adjustments.
Goforth was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Goforth struggled with the big club earlier in the season, allowing eight runs over just 7.2 innings while giving up two home runs. He's had somewhat better results with Colorado Springs, but has plenty of room to improve, as he's posting a 4.50 ERA and 1.76 WHIP at the Triple-A level.
Goforth was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday. Goforth has been putting up solid numbers out of the Sky Sox bullpen, making him a clear candidate for promotion when Chris Capuana (elbow) was placed on the disabled list. Goforth will likely slot into a middle relief role and mainly pitch in lower-leverage situations, especially if he can't improve his 7.20 major league ERA he holds from his first stint with the parent club.
