by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 4-for-5 with a run scored, two RBI and two stolen bases in Sunday's 12-8 win over the Royals.

After sitting out Saturday, Goodrum returned to the lineup with a vengeance. With the four hits, the versatile 27-year-old boosted his batting average to .242 to go along with 47 runs scored and 30 RBI in 81 games.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Big day with bat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and a pair of runs scored in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

Goodrum singled and scored in the fifth inning, giving the Tigers a one-run lead. He hit a two-run homer in the next inning as part of a five-run rally. The 27-year-old now has seven homers on the season and a mediocre .242/.322/.399 slash line.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Scores three times in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 2-for-5 with a walk, an RBI and three runs scored in a 9-6 loss to the White Sox in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Goodrum showed his versatility Wednesday, starting at second base and shifting to center field in Game 1, then playing at shortstop in the nightcap. The 27-year-old's ability to play multiple positions is a boon to the Tigers, though his .701 OPS and six home runs aren't moving the needle much in fantasy.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

Goodrum will get the series finale off after going 6-for-27 at the plate while starting each of the past seven contests. Harold Castro will fill in for Goodrum at shortstop.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Drives in two in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's 8-3 loss to Cleveland.

Goodrum posted his second straight multi-hit game, and he's now riding a modest four-game hitting streak overall. For the season, the 27-year-old is slashing .241/.320/.402 with six home runs, 23 RBI and 38 runs scored in 67 games.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Benched Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Goodrum will take a seat after starting at shortstop in the first two games of the series and going 3-for-8 with four strikeouts. Gordon Beckham will fill Goodrum's spot in the infield and bat sixth.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Back in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum (knee) is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth Thursday against the Royals, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

He bruised his knee in Tuesday's game and sat out Wednesday, but he's back in the mix against righty Homer Bailey. Goodrum is hitting .250 with zero home runs and three steals in 36 at-bats this month.

June 12, 2019 01:28 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Won't start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum had an MRI come back negative on his bruised right knee but he won't start Wedesday at Kansas City, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Goodrum exited Tuesday's game after suffering the bruise when he hit a foul ball off his right knee, leading to significant post-game swelling. The 27-year-old appears to have avoided a serious injury for now but seems likely to remain sidelined until the swelling goes down.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Suffers knee bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum exited Tuesday's game at Kansas City with a right knee contusion, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Goodrum hit a foul ball off his right knee which eventually forced him to leave the game. The 27-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the severity of the injury is determined. Gordon Beckham took over at shortstop for the Tigers.

June 4, 2019 11:36 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Has another multi-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-6 win over the Rays.

Batting leadoff, Goodrum ran his hitting streak up to six games, and he's recorded multiple hits in three of those contests. He's raised his batting average from .205 to .244 with the good stretch at the plate. Goodrum should continue to hit near the top of the order for a Detroit team that's struggled to find consistent offensive production all season.

June 2, 2019 09:12 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Triples, scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 2-for-5 with a triple, a double, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 10-5 loss to the Braves.

It was another good game for the Georgia native, who has seven hits in 10 at-bats so far in his return home, including two doubles and two home runs. Goodrum's season slash line is now up to .234/.318/.415, which is similar to the .245/.315/.432 with which he finished in 2018.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Has huge night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 5-for-5 with a double, two home runs, three RBI and four runs scored in Friday's 8-2 win over the Braves.

Goodrum had cooled down a bit recently, but the Georgia native broke out in a big way in his return home. This was the first five-hit game in the 27-year-old's career, and he's now up to six home runs and 17 RBI this season to go with a .715 OPS.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Homers from leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Orioles.

Batting leadoff in this one, Goodrum connected for his fourth home run of the season in the fifth inning off Dylan Bundy. The 27-year-old is still batting just .207 with a .645 OPS, but with the Tigers lacking a ton of firepower in the lineup, Goodrum should continue to get plenty of opportunities as a regular.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Scores twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Marlins.

Goodrum had been struggling a bit coming into Thursday, going just 3-for-27 over his previous seven games with no multi-hit efforts. The 27-year-old still figures to get ample playing time for the rebuilding Tigers, and perhaps the two-hit performance will jump-start a hot streak.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Rejoins lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum (illness) is starting at first base and batting leadoff in Sunday's game versus the Athletics, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Goodrum was a late scratch Friday with flu-like symptoms and was held out of the lineup again Saturday, though he's apparently good to go for the series finale. The 27-year-old is in the midst of a 2-for-24 slump over his last seven games.

May 18, 2019 01:12 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Out with flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum (illness) is not in Saturday's lineup against the A's.

He was a late scratch Friday with flu-like symptoms and will remain out for at least one more game. Brandon Dixon gets the start at DH, hitting seventh.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Late scratch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum was scratched from Friday's lineup against Oakland due to flu-like symptoms, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Goodrum was expected to start at first base and lead off, but he's not healthy enough to play. Gordon Beckham will move to the leadoff spot and play shortstop, while Ronny Rodriguez will shift to first base.

May 12, 2019 01:40 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Leading off again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum will start in right field and lead off Sunday against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Goodrum will set the table against Twins southpaw Martin Perez after previously hitting atop the order against right-handed pitchers on two occasions earlier in the series. Manager Ron Gardenhire appears to have at least temporarily settled on Goodrum as the leadoff man in place of the slumping Jeimer Candelario, who has batted in the bottom half of the lineup in each of his three starts during the series.

May 11, 2019 07:44 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Rejoins lineup for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum (knee) is leading off and starting at second base for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader at Minnesota.

Goodrum suffered a bruised knee during a collision at first base in Friday's game and sat out Game 1, but he's apparently good to go for the nightcap. The 27-year-old is in a bit of a slump with a .143/.143/.179 slash line over his last seven games.
