Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Launches solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 2-for-4 with a home run and two additional RBI in Monday's win over the Royals.

Goodrum was one of two Detroit players that recorded multiple hits in this one, but he also made his presence felt in other categories. This contest ended a four-game slump for Goodrum, and this was also his first multi-hit game since May 24. It was also the first time he homered since May 1, when he did it against the Yankees. He now has five homers on the season.

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

Goodrum is starting at shortstop and batting fifth in Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Goodrum didn't start Friday or Saturday, but he'll reenter the lineup Sunday. The team has recently given Isaac Paredes time at shortstop, though he's starting at third base Sunday. Goodrum has struggled offensively with a .203/.286/.305 line, so it's possible he's out of the lineup more frequently moving forward unless he gets going at the plate.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is not in Saturday's lineup against the White Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

For the second day in a row, Isaac Paredes will draw the start at shortstop while Goodrum heads to the bench. He is hitting .107 with 10 strikeouts in 28 at-bats this month, but he has also chipped in three steals over that stretch.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is out of the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

Goodrum is 1-for-19 over his past five games and will head to the bench Friday. Isaac Paredes will work at shortstop and bat seventh.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum isn't starting Saturday's game against the White Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Goodrum had started each of the last three games and went 2-for-13 with two stolen bases and five strikeouts. Harold Castro will start at shortstop and bat sixth.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Swipes 10th base Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the White Sox.

Goodrum hasn't done much offensively this season, batting just .223 with a .643 OPS, though at least he's been able to provide 10 stolen bases in 13 attempts. The 29-year-old reached double figures in both steals and home runs in 2018 and 2019, so he could offer a nice mix of speed and power the rest of the way, though he figures to remain a drain on batting average for fantasy managers, as he's never batted better than .248 in a season.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Sitting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Goodrum is absent from Detroit's starting nine for the second straight game. Harold Castro will man shortstop Monday.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Doubles, scores in close win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Cleveland.

Goodrum led off the bottom of the eighth inning with a double, then came around to score the game's lone run two batters later on a sacrifice fly. The versatile 29-year-old is now batting .233 this season with 21 runs scored in 40 games, and his greatest fantasy asset remains his eligibility at multiple positions more so than his actual production.

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

Goodrum is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

Goodrum has played a fairly heavy role in Detroit this season, starting 37 of the team's 48 games thus far. He's hitting just .231/.329/.362, but there aren't any imminent threats to his playing time on the roster at the moment. Harold Castro starts at shortstop Tuesday.

May 23, 2021 01:40 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Re-enters lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is starting at shortstop and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the Royals.

Goodrum was out of the lineup Saturday but will return for the series finale, bumping Willi Castro to the bench. The Tigers have plenty of versatile pieces in the infield, so expect manager A.J. Hinch to continue to mix and match with Goodrum, Willi Castro, Harold Castro and Jonathan Schoop up the middle.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is out of the lineup Saturday against the Royals.

Goodrum sits following a 1-for-4, one-RBI performance Friday, breaking a run of five straight games without a hit. Harold Castro gets the start at shortstop.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Not in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is not starting Tuesday's game against the Mariners, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

The shortstop has gone hitless in his last four games, but he did contribute in other ways Monday, drawing two walks and stealing a base. Harold Castro fills in at shortstop for Tuesday's contest.

May 15, 2021 04:52 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cubs.

Goodrum will receive a day off after playing in four consecutive games. Harold Castro will take over at shortstop and bat sixth in the lineup.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Steals base Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 0-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Royals.

Goodrum walked in his initial plate appearance and later came around to score for the Tigers' first run of the game. The 29-year-old walked for a second time in the eighth and eventually stole second for his fifth stolen base of the year. Goodrum is slashing .245/.327/.418 with four home runs, 10 RBI and 16 runs scored but is striking out an alarming 40 percent of the time. His plate production will continue to be minimized if he can't fix his strikeout numbers moving forward.

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

Goodrum is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Goodrum will head to the bench for the first time in May while manager A.J. Hinch makes room in the starting nine at shortstop for Harold Castro, who has recorded six hits between his last two games. Meanwhile, Goodrum is off to a hot start to May in his own right, slashing .370/.472/.519 through his first seven games of the month. Goodrum's double-play partner in the middle infield, Willi Castro, is probably more at risk of losing out on an everyday role to Harold Castro than Goodrum.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

Goodrum is batting just .211 through 21 games, but he's made up for it somewhat with four home runs, with three of those long balls coming in his last nine games. The Tigers like the 29-year-old's defense at shortstop, so he should continue to see regular playing time.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Absent for second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is not in the lineup for the second game of the team's doubleheader Thursday against the White Sox.

Goodrum started at shortstop for the first game, but he went 0-for-3 while batting fifth in the order. Harold Castro will take over at the position and bat second for the latter contest.

Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Hits third home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Goodrum's third home run off the season, which came against Chicago starter Lucas Giolito, was part of a three-run seventh inning that saw the Tigers turn a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 lead. The 29-year-old still has an underwhelming .210/.279/.419 slash line, though his versatility should allow him to keep seeing regular playing time in Detroit at multiple positions, which gives him some fantasy appeal if he's able to heat up at the plate.

April 26, 2021 07:44 PM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Triples, scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Monday's loss to the Royals.

Goodrum came into the game just 3-for-26 in the previous eight contests, though he does now have hits in two straight games and four of the last five. The 29-year-old could use a multi-hit game to really break out of his slump, as he last recorded two or more hits back on April 15.

April 25, 2021 10:48 AM
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodrum is starting at shortstop and batting second in Sunday's game against the Royals.

Goodrum is stuck in a 2-for-22 slump and got Saturday off to hopefully clear his head. The versatile 29-year-old returns to the lineup with Willi Castro shifting over to second base and Jonathan Schoop handling designated hitter duties.
