Goins went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 6-4 win over the Twins.
Goins remains in the starting lineup as a replacement for the injured Yoan Moncada (hamstring) for a few more days. Moncada is due back Thursday.
Goins started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk in Saturday's 6-5 win loss to the Angels.
Between injuries to shortstop Tim Anderson (ankle) and third baseman Yoan Moncada (hamstring), Goins has been a regular presence in the White Sox's lineup over the past four-plus weeks. That stretch of playing time may be coming to an end. Anderson was activated off the injured list earlier this month, and Moncada has played three games in two days while on rehab assignment. If he's not the roster casualty when Moncada is activated, which could come Monday, then he certainly will lose his grip on consistent at-bats while filling a role as the team's utility infielder. Goins is hitting .268/.366/.402 over 30 games since his contract was purchased from Triple-A Charlotte in mid-July.
Goins went 5-for-8 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored across both games of a doubleheader Tuesday against the Tigers.
Goins had a big day at the dish, reaching base multiple times in both contests. He's served as the team's primary third baseman since Yoan Moncada (hamstring) hit the injured list on Aug. 1 and has been relatively productive, recording at least one hit in five of his seven starts. In a small sample this season with the big-league club, Goins has hit .333/.440/.540 across 76 plate appearances.
Goins started at third base in place of the injured Yoan Moncada (hamstring) on Wednesday and went 2-for-4 with a walk and a double in a 4-2 loss to the Mets.
The White Sox dropped Moncada onto the injured list, so there will be a window of opportunity for Goins, who remains the team's primary utility infielder after Jose Rondon was designated for assignment and eventually claimed by Baltimore. Goins has hit with regularity since joining the White Sox, hitting safely in six of his nine starts and going 12-for-37 (.324) with two home runs and four doubles overall.
Goins entered Tuesday's game after Yoan Moncada (hamstring) departed and went 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in a 5-2 loss to the Mets.
Moncada attempted to play through an injury that bothered him prior to the game. Goins, who had been getting regular starts at shortstop while Tim Anderson (ankle) was sidelined, should be the primary fill-in if Moncada misses any more playing time. Anderson returned to the lineup Tuesday, so shortstop is no longer a viable source of consistent playing time for Goins.
Goins is not in Saturday's lineup against the Twins.
He started the last five games, hitting .250 with one home run, six strikeouts and two walks over that stretch. Jose Rondon will start at shortstop and hit sixth. With Tim Anderson (ankle) expected back in the coming days, Goins' run as a regular is coming to an end.
Goins went 1-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Marlins.
After occupying the lower third of the order since coming up from Triple-A Charlotte, Goins slotted in at fifth Wednesday. It's unclear if this is a lasting promotion for Goins, who is 7-for-19 (.368) with a pair of home runs since returning to the major leagues. With Tim Anderson (ankle) ramping up on rehab, Goins' stay in the starting lineup likely will be ending soon.
Goins went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Marlins.
Goins was back in the starting lineup with a right-hander on the mound and homered for the second time since he was brought up to the majors. He and Jose Rondon are splitting time at shortstop, thought not in a true platoon, and that figures to be the case until early August. Injured shortstop Tim Anderson (ankle) ran the bases Monday for the first time since suffering a high-ankle sprain June 25 in Boston. Anderson told Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times he feels good and might return "in a week or two."
Goins is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.
Goins will be on the bench for a second straight game with the Rays bringing another southpaw (Ryan Yarbrough) to the hill. The veteran still looks poised to fill the strong side of a platoon at shortstop with either Jose Rondon or Leury Garcia until Tim Anderson (ankle) returns from the injured list.
Goins is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays.
Goins had his contract purchased by the White Sox on Wednesday and started the last two games at shortstop, going 2-for-6 with a home run and a walk. Jose Rondon will take over at shortstop for Friday's series opener.
Goins started at shortstop and went 0-for-3 with a walk in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Royals.
Goins has started both games since his retrieval from Triple-A Charlotte, filling in for the injured Tim Anderson (ankle) at shortstop. Anderson will be evaluated Monday, at which point the White Sox may present a clearer picture for his potential return. That will give an indication of how long the 31-year-old Goins could be a regular in the lineup.
Goins, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, could get an extended run at shortstop for the White Sox while Tim Anderson (ankle) remains sidelined, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Goins started at shortstop and homered in his first game with the team Wednesday. Jose Rondon was not productive as a fill-in, and the White Sox prefer Leury Garcia in the outfield, particularly after losing productive outfielder Eloy Jimenez (shoulder) to injury.
Goins went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Royals.
Making his first start with the White Sox, Goins smacked a two-run homer off starter Danny Duffy in the fifth inning. The 31-year-old was called up from Triple-A Charlotte ahead of Wednesday's game to fill in for Eloy Jimenez (elbow). Goins owned a .228/.274/.333 line across his first six seasons in the majors.
Goins' contract was selected by the White Sox on Wednesday.
With a career .228/.274/.333 slash line in parts of six seasons, Goins is unlikely to fill anything other than a bench role during his time with the White Sox. He'll start his first game with the team, however, batting ninth and playing shortstop Wednesday in Kansas City. Eloy Jimenez (elbow) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Goins agreed to a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Monday and has been invited to spring training, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Goins appeared in 41 games for the Royals a season ago, batting .226 with nine extra-base hits and six RBI. He figures to begin the 2019 campaign at Triple-A Charlotte after latching on with Chicago.
Goins agreed to a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Tuesday.
Goins will report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The infielder played in 41 games with the Royals this year, slashing .226/.252/.313 with nine extra-base hits and six RBI. He will serve as added organizational depth for Philadelphia, but don't expect to see him make an impact at the major-league level.
Goins was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Monday after passing through waivers unclaimed.
As a 30-year-old with a career .228/.274/.333 batting line in the majors, Goins unsurprisingly failed to attract interest from other teams after the Royals dropped him from their 40-man roster last week. He'll now head to Omaha and await another opportunity with Kansas City, which may not come if the Royals' infielders enjoy relatively sound health the rest of the season.
Goins was designated for assignment by the Royals on Thursday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.
Goins was removed from the active and 40-man rosters in order to make room for Jorge Bonifacio, who was reinstated from his suspension in a corresponding move. Over 41 games with the Royals, Goins hit .226 with a pedestrian .565 OPS and just six RBI. He will now enter waivers and could find a new home by next week.
Goins is not in the lineup against Cincinnati on Wednesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Goins will take a seat after going 0-for-4 during Tuesday's series opener. In his absence, Ramon Torres will man the keystone and bat ninth.
Goins is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The Royals' willingness to deploy Whit Merrifield in center field and designated hitter of late has opened up more time at the keystone for Goins, who started at the position in both of the past two games. The spike in opportunities isn't quite enough to give Goins much fantasy upside, even in most AL-only formats. He's hitting .237 over 98 plate appearances this season and has yet to record a home run or a stolen base.
