Angels' Brian Goodwin: Not starting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

The 29-year-old started the past six games and slashed .292/.393/.708 during that stretch, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday with southpaw Marco Gonzales starting for Seattle. Goodwin should fill the large side of a platoon in left field with Justin Upton going forward following the promotion of top-prospect Jo Adell. Taylor Ward will start in left field Wednesday while Upton serves as the designated hitter.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Slated for platoon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin will platoon with Justin Upton in left field while Jo Adell takes on an everyday role in right, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The Angels have made it clear that they want Adell to get regular playing time now that he has reached the big leagues, leaving Goodwin and Upton to split left-field duties. Goodwin figures to receive the bulk of starts against right-handed starters, and his overall slash line this season (.303/.395/.606) is far superior to Upton's (.135/.195/.297). True to form, Goodwin started against righty Justin Dunn on Tuesday, going 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base while scoring one run.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Knocks in three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI, a run scored and two walks in Friday's 9-6 loss to the Astros.

Goodwin went yard with a two-run homer in the fourth inning. He added an RBI triple in the eighth to bring the Angels within two runs. Goodwin has posted three straight multi-hit efforts -- the outfielder is 6-for-11 with two homers, six RBI and three runs scored in that span. Overall, he's batting .450/.522/.950 in six games as the Angels' primary option in right field.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Draws start against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Mariners, batting second and playing center field.

With Mike Trout placed on the paternity list Thursday, Goodwin will get his first opportunity to start against a left-hander on the young season. Goodwin has gotten off to a nice start thus far in 2020, logging five hits and a walk in 14 plate appearances. The outfielder will look to stay hot against Marco Gonzales on Thursday.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Homers, drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in a loss to Seattle on Wednesday.

Batting out of the ninth spot in the lineup, Goodwin sparked the Angels' offense with a solo homer in the fifth inning and a two-run double in the sixth. The 29-year-old is off to a strong start to the 2020 campaign, going 5-for-13 with four RBI through his first four games.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Sitting versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Seattle.

The 29-year-old started three of the first four games of the season but is heading to the bench for the second time with a southpaw (Justus Sheffield) taking the mound for the Mariners. Goodwin has had a solid start to 2020 and is 3-for-9 with two runs scored, one RBI and one walk. Taylor Ward is starting in right field and batting ninth Tuesday for the Angels.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin is not in the lineup Saturday against Oakland, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Goodwin started in right field in Friday's season opener with righty Frankie Montas on the mound, but he'll sit Saturday against southpaw Sean Manaea, with Taylor Ward starting in his place. Goodwin actually has reverse splits over the course of his career, posting a 121 wRC+ against lefties compared to a 100 wRC+ against righties, but that split against lefties comes with a .374 BABIP and a small sample size (just 186 plate appearances), so it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit frequently against southpaws this season.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin (knee) is in the lineup for Monday's exhibition game against the Padres, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Goodwin left Friday's intrasquad matchup after fouling a ball off his right knee, but he's good to go for the Angels' first exhibition game Monday. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready for Opening Day against the Athletics on Friday.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Knee issue not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin is expected to be fine after fouling a ball off his knee Friday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Manager Joe Maddon confirmed Saturday that Goodwin wasn't seriously injured. It sounds as though he'll be ready to go Opening Day against the Athletics on Friday, when he's expected to be the starting right fielder.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Exits with apparent knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin exited Friday's intrasquad matchup after he fouled a ball off his right knee, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Goodwin was down for several minutes, but he was able to walk off the field under his own power. He walked around gingerly in the dugout before heading to the clubhouse. The severity of the injury remains to be seen, and it's unclear whether the issue could impact his availability for the start of the regular season with Opening Day one week away.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Struggles in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin hit .185/.290/.296 with three doubles and a 4:12 BB:K over 31 plate appearances before spring training was suspended.

Goodwin started well this spring but tailed off with only two hits over his final 17 at-bats. Contact was a particular issue as the 29-year-old whiffed in nearly half his Cactus League at-bats after posting a troubling 28.2 strikeout rate last season. Goodwin remains in line to see a healthy dose of starts early in the 2020 campaign, but he's likely to lose significant playing time whenever top prospect Jo Adell is called up to the big leagues.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Hitting well in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin has gone 3-for-10 with two doubles, three walks, three RBI and two runs through his first five Cactus League games.

Goodwin was an unsung hero for the Angels in 2019, churning out a .262/.326/.470 slash line (109 wRC+) in 458 plate appearances while proving to be a capable replacement option in the outfield while Justin Upton missed extensive time due to injury. With Kole Calhoun leaving for Arizona over the winter, Goodwin looks poised to open the season in the large side of a platoon in the corner outfield, though he'll be a prime candidate to lose out on work whenever the Angels determine top prospect Jo Adell is ready for a full-time role in the big leagues.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Victorious in arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin will earn $2.2 million this season after winning his arbitration case Wednesday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The Angels had filed at $1.85 million. Goodwin looks set to open the season with a significant role in an outfield corner after hitting .262/.326/.470 with 17 homers last season, though Jo Adell looms to potentially reduce him to a bench role early in the year.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Homers in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Goodwin rested Friday after exiting Thursday's game early due to back spasms. He was back in the lineup against Houston on Saturday and got the Angels on the board in the first inning with a solo shot to right field. Goodwin has been a pleasant surprise for the team this season, slashing .264/.327/.474 with 17 long balls, 29 doubles and seven stolen bases in 135 games.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin (back) will bat second and play center field Saturday against the Astros.

Goodwin left Thursday's game with back spasms and sat out Friday's contest, but the injury won't wind up shutting him down for the year. Goodwin owns a strong .797 OPS on the season overall but has just a .413 OPS over his last 16 games.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Out as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin (back) isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Astros.

Goodwin had to leave Thursday's matchup due to back spasms, and as anticipated, he'll be held out Friday. He'll be considered day-to-day heading into the final weekend of the regular season.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin (back) isn't expected to be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 28-year-old was removed from Thursday's contest with back spasms and is likely to be absent from Friday's starting nine, though his back apparently felt a bit better after leaving the contest. Manager Brad Ausmus couldn't guarantee Goodwin will be able to return during the final series of the season this weekend.

September 27, 2019 12:20 AM
Angels' Brian Goodwin: Leaves with back spasm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin left Thursday's game against Houston due to a back spasm.

Goodwin left the matchup after sliding into second base on a double, but he appears to have avoided a serious injury. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Exits after awkward slide
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin was removed from Thursday's game against the Astros after sliding awkwardly into second base, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The location of Goodwin's injury is unclear at this time, though he's likely headed for further testing. He was replaced on the basepaths by Kean Wong.

Angels' Brian Goodwin: Comes through with clutch home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in a victory over the White Sox on Friday.

Goodwin took over in center field for Mike Trout (toe) in the fifth inning and filled the slugger's prodigious shoes admirably by smashing a game-tying two-run homer in the eighth inning. The 28-year-old was a late add to the roster after being released by Kansas City near the end of spring training but has been a pleasant surprise as a major contributor for the Angels this season, slashing .287/.346/.516 with 16 long balls, 27 doubles and 45 RBI in 117 games, each of which is a career high.
