  • Pirates' Niko Goodrum: Claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh

    The Pirates claimed Goodrum off waivers and optioned him to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

    Goodrum was DFA'd by the Angels after being optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on May 16, where he has gone 5-for-25 with a 30 percent strikeout rate. To make room for Goodrum, Pittsburgh designated right-hander Ben Heller for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Angels' Niko Goodrum: Sent to Triple-A

    The Angels optioned Goodrum to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

    Goodrum was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay last Thursday, and he went 0-for-13 in four games with the Angels. He will now return to the minors, making room for Luis Rengifo's (illness) return from the injured list. It's possible Goodrum returns later this year if the Angels continue to struggle with infield depth, but he has proven to be an offensive liability throughout his seven-year career in MLB.

  • Angels' Niko Goodrum: Swipes bag in team debut

    Goodrum went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Friday in a loss to the Royals.

    Goodrum was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay on Thursday and made his Angels debut one day later, starting at third base and batting fifth in the order. Though he went hitless in his team debut, the utility man drew a walk in his first plate appearance and subsequently stole second base. Goodrum could get regular at-bats given his versatility and Los Angeles' drastically depleted infield. He's struggled to make contact during his major-league career but has demonstrated good speed with 47 stolen bases on 61 attempts.

  • Angels' Niko Goodrum: Reports to big-league club

    The Angels activated Goodrum on Friday.

    Goodrum had been with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate when he was DFA'd and later claimed by the Angels, but he will return to the majors as a replacement for Ehire Adrianza (back), who landed on the injured list Friday. Goodrum has experience at every position other than catcher, though he will likely return to the minors once Los Angeles' heavily depleted infield -- which is also missing Brandon Drury (hamstring), Luis Rengifo (illness) and others -- gets healthier.

  • Angels' Niko Goodrum: Claimed by Angels

    The Angels claimed Goodrum off waivers from the Rays on Thursday.

    Goodrum was DFA'd by the Rays on Monday after going 3-for-16 with six strikeouts across nine games with Tampa Bay. The 32-year-old utility man will likely remain in Triple-A as he moves into the Angels organization, though he will claim a spot on the 40-man roster. Kelvin Caceres (lat) was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake and placed on the 60-day IL in a corresponding move.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Exits 40-man roster

    The Rays designated Goodrum for assignment Monday.

    Goodrum had been sent down to Triple-A Durham a few days ago and is now off the 40-man roster. The utility player has a career .685 OPS over parts of seven big-league seasons.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Sent to Triple-A

    The Rays optioned Goodrum to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Goodrum was called up by Tampa Bay on April 12, but he appeared in just nine games and went 3-for-16 with a walk and six strikeouts. The 32-year-old could rejoin the Rays later in the campaign if the club requires infield depth.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Called up by Tampa Bay

    The Rays recalled Goodrum from Triple-A Durham on Friday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    The 32-year-old will take the roster spot of Brandon Lowe, who heads to the injured list with an oblique strain. Goodrum had a 1.027 OPS through nine games for Durham and should fill a utility role while up with the Rays.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Promotion expected

    Goodrum is likely to be promoted to the major-league roster Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Goodrum joined the Rays just before Opening Day and has been playing at Triple-A Charlotte since. However, with Brandon Lowe (oblique), Taylor Walls (hip) and Jonathan Aranda (finger) all sidelined, the team needs depth along its infield. Goodrum is capable of playing any infield position besides catcher, but his best chance for playing time is likely to come at second base.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Added to 40-man roster and optioned

    The Rays selected Goodrum's contract and optioned him to Triple-A Durham on Thursday.

    Goodrum will get a spot on the Rays' 40-man roster after he was acquired from the Twins on Wednesday, but he won't be part of Tampa Bay's 26-man active roster for Thursday's season opener versus Toronto. The 32-year-old journeyman utility player has prior experience at every infield and outfield spot, so he should be a prime candidate for a call-up if the Rays' injury concerns continue to mount. Tampa Bay will open the season with five position players on the 10-day injured list.

  • Rays' Niko Goodrum: Headed to Tampa Bay

    The Rays acquired Goodrum from the Twins on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations, selected his contract from Triple-A Durham and optioned him to Durham, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Goodrum had an assignment clause in his minor-league contract which allowed him to leave for a major-league deal elsewhere. The 32-year-old switch hitter is a good fit for a Rays club that likes to take advantage of versatility, but he'll report to their Triple-A affiliate for now.

  • Twins' Niko Goodrum: Signs minors deal with Twins

    Goodrum signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Dec. 14.

    Goodrum spent the second half of the 2023 season in the Korea Baseball Organization after opting out of his minor-league deal with the Red Sox, but he'll return stateside as organizational infield depth for Minnesota. The 31-year-old has slashed just .196/.271/.334 over his last 549 major-league plate appearances dating back to the beginning of the 2020 campaign.

  • Niko Goodrum: Signs with KBO's Lotte Giants

    Goodrum has signed with the Korea Baseball Organization's Lotte Giants, Jee-ho Yoo of South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reports.

    Goodrum will be paid $400,000 by the Giants for the remainder of the season. The 31-year-old had recently opted out of his minor-league contract with the Red Sox.

  • Niko Goodrum: Exercising opt-out clause

    Goodrum was released Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Goodrum exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Red Sox. The veteran utility player has been at Triple-A Worcester all season, where he's posted an .888 OPS with eight homers and seven steals. He won't have trouble finding a gig elsewhere, although it's not a given it will be a major-league deal.

  • Red Sox's Niko Goodrum: Has upward mobility clause

    Goodrum has an upward mobility clause in his minor-league contract with the Red Sox which would allow him to sign a major-league deal elsewhere if Boston doesn't plan to have him on the Opening Day roster, Ian Cundall of SoxProspects.com reports.

    It's worth noting is that Goodrum has an option remaining, so the Red Sox could conceivably add him to the 40-man roster but stick him at Triple-A Worcester to begin the season if he doesn't get an offer from another club. Goodrum has a career .688 OPS over parts of six major-league seasons.

  • Red Sox's Niko Goodrum: Lands with Red Sox

    Goodrum will serve as a non-roster invitee for the Red Sox this spring, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Goodrum was let go by the Astros in early September but joined Boston on a minor-league deal this week. He played in just 15 major-league games with Houston last year and hit .116 with two runs, an RBI and a stolen base.

  • Niko Goodrum: Let go by Astros

    Goodrum was released by the Astros on Friday, Kenny Van Doren of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Goodrum was designated for assignment by Houston on Thursday, and he'll become a free agent after going unclaimed on waivers. Over 15 games with Houston this year, the 30-year-old hit just .116 with two doubles, two runs, an RBI and a stolen base.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: DFA'd by Houston

    Goodrum was designated for assignment by the Astros on Thursday.

    Goodrum has gone 5-for-43 with 23 strikeouts while up with the Astros this season, and he's now lost his spot on the 40-man roster. The 30-year-old could remain with Sugar Land if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Astros' Niko Goodrum: Back in action at Sugar Land

    Goodrum (hamstring) was reinstated from Triple-A Sugar Land's 7-day injured list Thursday and returned to the lineup a day later, going 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.

    A left hamstring injury had kept Goodrum out of commission at Sugar Land since June 1 before he made his return to action last week. Goodrum still retains a spot on Houston's 40-man roster, but the organization doesn't seem to have much urgency to move him back to the majors, even with utility man Aledmys Diaz (groin) landing on the 10-day IL on Wednesday.
