Goodrum went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Rays. Goodrum was the only Tigers player with more than a single hit in this one, as he continued his torrid pace at the plate lately. In his last 10 games, the 26-year-old is batting .429 with a home run, six RBI, eight runs scored and a stolen base. He should get plenty of playing time the rest of the way in Detroit, giving him the opportunity to further establish himself as a reliable fantasy option.
Goodrum went 2-for-6 with two doubles, a run scored and three RBI in Monday's loss to the Rays. Goodrum has gotten off to a hot start in July, as he's now batting .421 this month with six doubles, five RBI and eight runs scored. With a clear path to playing time at second base, the 26-year-old looks like he could be a useful middle infield option in many fantasy formats the rest of the way.
Goodrum went 4-for-4 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rangers. Goodrum raised his season batting average to .251 with the strong performance. The 26-year-old has a clear path to playing time at second base the rest of the way, and as a middle infielder with a decent mix of power and speed, he's worth a look in many fantasy formats.
Goodrum went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Rangers. The 26-year-old is still hitting a modest .241, though he's now up to eight home runs on the season along with six steals, making him a decent source of power and speed from the middle infield. The Tigers designated Dixon Machado for assignment Wednesday, which only further cements Goodrum as the everyday second baseman moving forward.
Goodrum is not in the lineup Friday against the Blue Jays. Goodrum sits after starting 10 straight games for the Tigers. Dixon Machado will get the start at second base.
