White Sox's Ryan Goins: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins cleared waivers and was outrighted to the team's alternate training site Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Despite his demotion, the infielder will join the team's taxi squad as the White Sox continue their road trip. Goins has appeared in 14 games this season, failing to record a hit in nine at-bats.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Cast off 40-man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins was designated for assignment Monday.

The White Sox will swap in Yolmer Sanchez for Goins as the team's bench infielder going forward. Goins was 0-for-9 with one strikeout in his time with the big club.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Contract purchased by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins' contract was purchased by the White Sox on Monday.

The 32-year-old has carved out a career as a utility man over parts of seven big-league seasons, but with a career .230/.279/.335 slash line, he's unlikely to be anything more than that this year. He'll replaced Cheslor Cuthbert on the active roster, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Signs with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Goins will report to the team's alternative camp site in Schaumburg, Illinois, where he'll remain as organizational infield depth. The 32-year-old hit .250/.333/.347 across 52 games with Chicago in 2019.

Ryan Goins: Hits free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins was released by the Athletics on Sunday.

He was in camp on a minor-league deal and clearly wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster, so perhaps the decision was mutual. Either way, Goins will now look to offer infield depth to a different big-league club.

Athletics' Ryan Goins: Included in 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins will report to Oakland when teams resume workouts this week after the Athletics announced Sunday that he would be part of their 60-man roster pool.

Goins previously attended spring training on a minor-league deal and wasn't a safe bet to break camp with the big club, but the expanded roster pool will allow the veteran infielder to stick around with Oakland. He'll likely be in line for a depth role and could need an injury or two to hit the Athletics' middle infield before he sees regular starts.

Athletics' Ryan Goins: Headed to Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Monday, which includes an invitation to spring training.

Goins became a free agent at the end of October after being outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte, though it didn't take long for him to latch on with a new team. He hit .250 with two home runs and 10 RBI over 52 games with the White Sox in 2019 and has appeared in the big leagues at some point in each of the last seven seasons.

Ryan Goins: To become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday and will become a minor-league free agent following the conclusion of the World Series.

Goins got into 52 games for the White Sox in 2019, hitting .250/333/.347. His 86 wRC+ was the best mark of his seven-year big-league career, so he'll likely be stuck looking for a minor-league contract heading into his age-32 season.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Starts in right field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins went 0-for-4 while batting leadoff in Thursday's 7-1 win over Cleveland.

Right field in the White Sox's lineup has been a revolving door for much of the season and even more so since Jon Jay (hip) landed on the injury list. After Daniel Palka made a couple of hitless starts there Tuesday and Wednesday, Goins got an opportunity. And with Leury Garcia getting a breather, he slotted in at leadoff. The White Sox have no shortage of mediocre options to play there for the rest of the season.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Picks up third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins will start at shortstop and bat second Thursday against the Twins.

After serving as the designated hitter and manning right field the previous two days, Goins will cover shortstop for a resting Tim Anderson in the series finale. The DH spot probably represents Goins' most realistic path to an everyday role, as his main competition for those duties, Matt Skole, has posted an underwhelming .526 OPS since being called up from Triple-A Charlotte earlier this month.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Fills in for Garcia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins entered Sunday's game after Leury Garcia was removed due to a lower leg injury.

Goins pinch ran for Garcia and stayed in the game to play left field. With Eloy Jimenez back in the lineup following a hip injury -- he served as the designated hitter over the weekend -- he should slot in at left field after Monday's off day and move Goins further into a depth role, unless Garcia's injury turns out to be serious.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: To see downturn in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goins, who is not in Thursday's lineup against the Rangers, will likely see diminished playing time going forward now that Yoan Moncada (hamstring) has been activated.

Moncada missed over three weeks with the injury, and Goins hit .253 with zero home runs and zero steals in 79 at-bats over that stretch. Yolmer Sanchez, who is starting at second base Thursday, apparently has a leg up on Goins, who appears to be assuming a bench role going forward.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Bags three hits Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Starts at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Drives in a pair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Starts at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Fills in for Moncada
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Bats fifth Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Ryan Goins: Hits second home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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."
