  • Yankees' Nick Goody: Back with Yankees on MiLB deal

    Goody signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Tuesday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

    Goody latched on with the Nationals on a minor-league deal after being released by the Yankees in early July. While Goody posted a 2.86 ERA with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to begin the campaign, he struggled to a 5.14 ERA across his 14 innings at Rochester before being cut loose once again. The right-hander will provide New York with minor-league relief depth as he looks to make his way onto the major-league roster down the stretch.

  • Nationals' Nick Goody: Signs minor-league contract

    Goody signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Tuesday, freelance baseball writer Byron Kerr reports.

    Goody was let go by the Yankees on Sunday, but he'll land another minor-league roster spot just two days later. The right-hander made 17 relief appearances for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and was effective with a 2.86 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 22 innings. He's been assigned to Triple-A Rochester but could join the Nationals' pitching staff at some point in 2021.

  • Nick Goody: Let go by Yankees

    Goody was released by the Yankees on Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    The right-hander signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees in February but never received a big-league opportunity. Goody pitched well at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with a 2.86 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB across 22 innings.

  • Yankees' Nick Goody: Gets opportunity with Yankees

    The Yankees announced Wednesday that Goody signed a minor-league contract with the organization that includes an invitation to big-league spring training.

    The 29-year-old will rejoin the organization that drafted him in the sixth round in 2012. Since making his big-league debut for the Yankees in 2015, Goody has spent time in the Cleveland and Texas organizations through the first six years of his career, logging a 4.19 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 17.2 K-BB% over 158 appearances. He found little success with the Rangers in 2020 while also missing time due to back spasms, so he'll need to stay healthy and perform well in spring training to have a realistic shot at winning a spot in New York's Opening Day bullpen.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: DFA'd by Rangers

    Goody was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Thursday.

    Goody had a rough outing Wednesday as he allowed three runs on three hits over one-third of an inning. He'll be removed from the 40-man roster after posting a 9.00 ERA over 17 appearances in 2020. Andrew Romine's contract was selected in a corresponding move.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Blown up in loss

    Goody (0-2) allowed three runs on three hits while making it through just one-third of an inning Wednesday, as the Rangers fell to the Diamondbacks 7-3.

    Making his 17th appearance of the year, Goody ballooned his ERA to 9.00. Three runs represented his highest total given up this season. He also permitted a home run for the first time in his last seven appearances.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Starting first game Saturday

    Goody will start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    Goody will be making his first major-league start and is not expected to go much beyond an inning. He's thrown a total of 8.2 innings over 13 appearances. Wes Benjamin is expected to take up the bulk of the innings.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Back from IL

    Goody (back) was activated from the injured list Wednesday.

    Goody wound up missing two weeks with back spasms. Prior to landing on the shelf, the right-hander compiled a 4.50 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 2:3 K:BB across seven appearances (four innings). He figures to ease back into a setup role.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Lands on injured list

    Goody was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with back spasms.

    The 29-year-old was unavailable over the weekend with what the team called lower-back tightness, and the injury has now been reclassified as back spasms. It's unclear how long Goody is expected to be sidelined.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Dealing with back issue

    Goody wasn't available out of the bullpen during the Rangers' weekend series with the Angels due to lower-back tightness, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

    Manager Chris Woodward said that Goody would be re-evaluated Monday before the Rangers determine whether or not he'll require a stint on the injured list. Goody has appeared in five games for Texas this season, giving up one run over three innings and collecting his first career save.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Earns first career save

    Goody recorded the save Wednesday by retiring the Diamondbacks in order with one strikeout.

    Closer Jose Leclerc was warming up for the save opportunity, but his shoulder tightened up and Goody was then called upon. If Leclerc lands on the injured list it seems unlikely Goody operates as the fill-in closer given Wednesday was his first career save, but it was a solid outing to show his potential for a high-leverage role.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Makes roster

    Goody will open the season on the active roster, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

    The 29-year-old Goody, who has 141 games of MLB experience under his belt, was expected to earn a spot in the bullpen after dominating during spring training. He owns an impressive 28.3 percent career strikeout rate over 141.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Impressive spring

    Goody struck out the side in Monday's spring game against the Athletics.

    Goody has been the bullpen's highlight in the Cactus League. Over six scoreless innings, he's allowed one hit and two walks while striking out 14. He's nothing more than a fastball-slider reliever with average four-seam velocity who's been dogged by high walk and HR rates. But through it all, he's shown an ability to punch guys out, averaging 11.3 K/9 over the previous three seasons in Cleveland.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Avoids arbitration with Rangers

    Goody agreed to a one-year, $915,000 contract with the Rangers on Monday, avoiding arbitration, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

    The 28-year-old righty was released by the Indians and then claimed by Texas earlier this offseason. He had a 3.54 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 50:22 K:BB in 40.2 innings for Cleveland. Look for him to fill a middle-relief role.

  • Rangers' Nick Goody: Accepts assignment with Rangers

    Goody accepted the Rangers' waiver claim Monday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Goody was released by the Indians on Nov. 22, and he appeared to be heading toward free agency. However, he accepted the Rangers' waiver claim rather than testing the market after posing a 3.54 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP over 40.2 innings last season. The right-hander will likely work mainly as a middle reliever for Texas.
