Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brian Goodwin won his salary arbitration case and will make $2.2 million in 2020 instead of the $1.85 million the team was proposing, according to sources. Goodwin hit .262/.326/.470 with 17 home runs, 47 RBI, 65 runs scored and seven stolen bases in 413 at-bats for the Halos last year. He was probably pretty happy when the team's trade for Joc Pederson fell through, but he will still likely platoon in the outfield with David Fletcher and take a seat on the bench when the Angels are facing left-handed pitching. He'll be an attractive DFS sleeper and solid outfield depth in AL-only leagues, but he doesn't have much mixed league appeal in a part-time role.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brian Goodwin will bat leadoff as the team takes on the Rays on Saturday. Goodwin is scuffling at the plate, going 2-for-27 over his last seven games and is hitting only .193 over his last 15. After slugging .667 in the month of August, Goodwin is limping his way to the finish line. It has been, however, a surprisingly solid year for the journeyman. He may not be able to help fantasy rosters down the stretch but his 16 home runs and 27 doubles certainly should earn him a look in someone's starting lineup next season.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brian Goodwin is making a late-season push and becoming an intriguing fantasy asset heading into September. Goodwin got off to strong start to begin the season but lost playing time as the season went on. But the 28-year-old has been white-hot as of late, slashing .293/.369/.641 over his last 30 games with seven home runs and 16 runs batted in. Since the All-Star break, Goodwin's line is .310/.371/.673 with eight home runs and 15 doubles. If the journeyman can put together a solid final month of the season, he certainly will have a shot at earning a more regular role on a team next season. For now, Goodwin can help plenty of rosters in the final weeks of the fantasy season.
