Goodwin hasn't officially opted out of his minor-league deal with the Pirates but appears set to do so, as he hasn't been including on any of the team's minor-league rosters, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

Goodwin failed to earn an Opening Day roster spot with the Pirates after struggling to a .688 OPS in spring training. It would be a surprise he can't find big-league at-bats anywhere this season, however, as his career .250/.317/.455 slash line (101 wRC+) is good enough for at least a bench role, especially given that he can hold his own in center field.
