Latest Update Ryan Goins was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo following Sunday's game Sun Aug, 10, 09:31 PM
Plays the game the right away and is always hustling on the field. Has some pop in his bat, thanks largely to a quality compact swing.
Flaws: : Lacks range in the field and doesn't have a great throwing arm. While he can steal bases, his overall speed isn't great by MLB standards.
Goins was struggling in the month of August going 3 for 25 (.120). Overall on the year he is hitting just .197 with 10 runs with a home runs and 11 RBI in 44 games.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Goins recorded his best performance on the season on Monday night as he continues to get time at second base in the absence of Brett Lawrie. However, slashing just .212/.247/.306 with one home run and eight RBI isn't going to win anyone over, so those looking to jump on him after one good showing will want to think again. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Goins will serve as a backup infielder this time around, but has little to no fantasy value moving forward. In 66 at-bats earlier in the season, Goins slashed .150/.203/.217 with only two extra-base hits. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Good glove no bat doesn't cut it these days at middle infield. A .150/.203/.217 slash line is not going to be enough to keep you in the big leagues, no matter how well you field your position. Expect Jonathan Diaz to platoon with someone else soon enough. Not that I would recommend any 2B option on the Jays right now.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
