Goldberg was outrighted from the White Sox's 40-man roster Wednesday.
Goldberg made just 11 appearances with the White Sox this season, and struggled to an 8.25 ERA with a 2.33 WHIP over 12 innings of relief work. He's been a consistent presence while moving up the minor-league ladder in recent years, but hasn't been able to succeed at the highest stage at this point in his career. For the time being, he remains with the team as a non-roster player.
Goldberg was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Monday's doubleheader.
Goldberg had a four-out scoreless appearance in the conclusion of Monday's doubleheader, but he still exits the clubs with an 8.25 ERA over 12 innings of work. He had a horrid 3:14 K:BB -- no, that's not backwards -- in his 11 appearances and needs to fix his control issues before he has any chance of sticking in the majors for the long-term.
After dealing away relievers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle to the Yankees as part of a blockbuster deal Tuesday, Goldberg will move up to the big club to help fortify the bullpen. The right-hander was lit up for four runs in one third of an inning in his MLB debut earlier this season and will likely be ticketed for low-leverage work in his second stint with the White Sox.
Goldberg was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.
The right-handed reliever was lit up in his lone relief appearance during his stint with the White Sox, surrendering four earned runs while recording just one out against the Tigers. Goldberg will now head back to Triple-A, where he owns a 1.99 ERA with 22 strikeouts over 22.2 innings. The White Sox will announce a corresponding move prior to Friday's series opener against the Indians.
Goldberg was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.
With Michael Ynoa (hip flexor) landing on the 10-day DL, Goldberg was called up to add some depth to a depleted bullpen. He should serve in low-leverage situations.
