Goodwin isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Royals.
Goodwin will be on the bench for the second time in the last three games with southpaw Kris Bubic starting for Kansas City. Adam Engel will start in center field and bat second.
Goodwin is out of the lineup Monday against the Royals, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Goodwin started the past three games but will take a seat with lefty Mike Minor pitching Monday for Kansas City. Goodwin has been a regular in the lineup for the White Sox, but his playing time could see a reduction in the near future with Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) back from the injured list and Luis Robert (hip) currently on a rehab assignment.
Goodwin isn't starting Wednesday against the Twins.
Goodwin will get a breather after he went 2-for-9 with a run, an RBI, a walk and three strikeouts across the last three games. Adam Engel will shift to right field while Billy Hamilton starts in center.
Goodwin is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.
The lefty-hitting Goodwin will head to the bench with southpaw Framber Valdez on the mound for Houston, paving the way for Billy Hamilton to pick up a start in the outfield. Goodwin had started in each of Chicago's last nine games, going 10-for-39 (.256 average) with a home run, six RBI and three runs.
Goodwin went 4-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and a second run scored in Saturday's 8-3 win over Baltimore.
Goodwin has been the main beneficiary of the White Sox designating Adam Eaton for assignment. He's started in right field for the three games since Eaton was jettisoned from the roster and is 7-for-15 with a home run, two doubles and six RBI.
Goodwin started in right field and went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Twins.
Goodwin got the start in right after the White Sox designated Adam Eaton for assignment Wednesday. With Eaton out of the mix and Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) and Luis Robert (hip) injured, Goodwin should get plenty of at-bats until the injured outfielders return.
Goodwin isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Tigers.
Goodwin had gone 4-for-11 with two homers, a triple, a double, four runs and three RBI across the last three games. Billy Hamilton will take over in center field and bat seventh.
Goodwin went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two runs scored and a walk Thursday against the Twins.
Goodwin took Jose Berrios yard in the second inning to record his third homer of the season and second in as many games. He also tacked on a double three frames later, his sixth in 17 contests on the campaign. Given his recent form and the team's current glut of injuries, Goodwin could continue to see regular opportunities in the lineup in the short term.
Goodwin went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo homer and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 13-3 win over the Twins.
Goodwin got the rout started with a solo blast in the second inning, then four teammates followed with another five home runs. He's been a lineup regular since the White Sox selected his contract June 10, starting 14 of 16 games. With the cascade of injuries in the outfield, Goodwin should receive ample at-bats until Adam Eaton (hamstring), Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) and Luis Robert (hip) are healthy again.
Goodwin batted fourth and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Astros.
White Sox manager Tony La Russa shook up the lineup after losing the first three games of the series to Houston, but Chicago mustered just three hits in the finale. Goodwin has started seven of nine games since being added to the roster and entered the two other games as a pinch hitter and defensive replacement. The White Sox are currently without the services of outfielders Adam Eaton (hamstring), Billy Hamilton (oblique), Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) and Luis Robert (hip). That leaves at-bats for Goodwin, Leury Garcia (knee), Jake Lamb and Andrew Vaughn.
Goodwin started in center field and went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Rays.
Goodwin was part of the White Sox's two-run uprising in the third inning, but that's all the team could muster. The outfielder, who had his contract selected late last week, is in the mix for available at-bats in center and left field while the White Sox bide their time awaiting the returns of Luis Robert (hip) and Eloy Jimenez (pectoral). Goodwin is part of a group that includes Adam Engel, Leury Garcia, Jake Lamb and Andrew Vaughn.
Goodwin went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, five RBI and three runs scored in Saturday's 15-2 win over Detroit.
The outfielder made his White Sox debut Saturday, and he also made an impact. Goodwin plated Tim Anderson with an RBI double in the first inning. In the second, Goodwin added a three-run home run. He got aboard with a walk and scored on a passed ball in the fifth, and then added one more RBI with a groundout in the eighth. In 2020, the 30-year-old slashed a poor .215/.299/.417 with six homers, 22 RBI, 17 runs scored and five stolen bases in 50 games between the Angels and the Reds. He's likely to serve as outfield depth while with the White Sox.
Goodwin had his contract selected by the White Sox on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The 30-year-old joined Chicago on a minor-league deal in early May after being cut loose by Pittsburgh, and he'll take the roster spot of Nick Madrigal (hamstring), who landed on the 60-day injured list. Goodwin is unlikely to have a significant role with Adam Engel and Jake Lamb already available as depth options in the outfield.
Goodwin went 1-for-3 for Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.
Goodwin, who agreed to a minor-league deal earlier this week, could provide help in center field with Luis Robert (hip) sidelined for three months at minimum. It's unclear if/when Goodwin will join the White Sox, but the veteran brings speed and moderate pop that could be useful.
Goodwin signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Goodwin didn't have to wait long at all for a new suitor after being released by the Pirates on Monday. He's found himself in an ideal situation, as the White Sox are a competitive team that's desperate for outfield help -- Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) and Luis Robert (hip) are both set to miss most of the year, while Adam Engel (hamstring) is still several weeks away from returning to action. However, it remains unclear when Goodwin is the answer to the team's problems. His 101 career wRC+ is certainly good enough for him to be at least a part-time player, but he recorded a career low of 91 in that category last season and failed to make the Pirates out of camp this spring.
Goodwin was released by the Pirates on Monday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Goodwin will head to free agency after being released from his contract. He split time between the Reds and the Angels in 2020, struggling to a .215 average with six homers, 22 RBI and five stolen bases.
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.
The Pirates reassigned Goodwin to their minor-league camp Monday.
Despite his status as a non-roster invitee, Goodwin looked to be in strong position heading into camp to begin the season in a strong-side platoon role in the outfield. Goodwin ultimately couldn't capitalize on the opportunity, as the Pirates elect to cut him from camp after he submitted a lackluster .688 OPS while striking out 13 times in 35 Grapefruit League at-bats. With Goodwin out of the picture, Anthony Alford now looks on track to begin the season as the Pirates' primary center fielder.
Goodwin went 1-for-2 with a run and an RBI against Baltimore on Friday.
Playing left field, Goodwin made two first-inning errors and misplayed a third ball hit to him. He has just three hits in 21 spring at-bats and isn't guaranteed to make the Opening Day roster. Goodwin is competing against the likes of Anthony Alford, Dustin Fowler and Jared Oliva for an outfield spot.
Goodwin is expected to compete with Anthony Alford and Jared Oliva for playing time in center field, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
The team might best be served with Goodwin backing up all three outfield spots while occasionally starting. Alford made just four starts with Pittsburgh before suffering a season-ending injury in 2020 and Oliva saw less playing time on a struggling team than one might expect. As a result, spring training performance will likely play a large role in determining who nails down the starting spot.
