Ryan Goins went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and solo homer in Monday's ALCS Game 3 victory over the Royals.
There was plenty of offense in this one and it even came from unexpected sources. Goins finished a great at-bat against Johnny Cueto in the second inning with an opposite-field single and he padded the Jays' lead with a long solo blast in the fifth. The slick fielder also made a couple nice plays on defense. Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson also went deep for the Jays as the club pounded out 11 hits and 11 runs. Mon, Oct 19, 2015 11:30:00 PM

Ryan Goins was an on-base machine Wednesday, going 5-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored in a 15-2 win in the first game of a doubleheader against the Orioles.

Goins also walked in the game, reaching in all six plate appearances on the afternoon. He became the first shortstop in team history with five hits in a game. Goins, a regular in recent weeks with both Troy Tulowitzki and Devon Travis out, is batting .253/.324/.355 with five homers, 43 RBI and 51 runs on the year.

Ryan Goins went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple in Friday's win over the Red Sox.

Goins' run-scoring triple capped off a three-run fourth inning for the Blue Jays. He would also add a single in the contest to finish 2-for-4. He's picked up a pair of hits in each of his last two games and is currently working on a baby four-game hitting streak. For the season, the second baseman maintains a .248/.318/.353 triple-slash with five homers, 41 RBI and three triples.

Ryan Goins belted a walk-off two-run home run in the 10th inning as the Blue Jays overcame the Indians on Tuesday.

Closer Roberto Osuna blew the save in the ninth inning, but Goins picked up his teammate. The second baseman sent a Bryan Shaw offering over the fence in right field to break a 3-3 tie and send the Jays home happy. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk on the evening. Goins is typically not one for power hitting, as he's batting .246/.318/.357 with five home runs and 37 RBI on the year.

Ryan Goins went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Thursday afternoon's 4-2 win over the A's.

The Blue Jays scored all four of their runs in the third inning, with Goins providing the big swing when he connected for a three-run home run. With the win, the boys from Toronto have now rolled to 11 straight victories. For his part, Goins is hitting a light .225/.289/.329 with four homers and 31 RBI. If the Jays' singles-hitting second baseman is going to start driving in runs, the rest of baseball might as well pack it in for the remainder of the season.

Ryan Goins went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI double in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Phillies.

The Jays banged out 16 hits against the Phillies' pitching, so Goins' contributions were relative drops in the bucket. Still a productive night. He doubled in a run in the seventh to push the Jays' lead to 8-1 at the time. Goins has otherwise not done much at the dish, batting .227/.274/.323 with two home runs and 26 RBI.

Ryan Goins belted a three-run homer and a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

Goins finished the game 2-for-5 with five RBI. Hitting out of the nine-hole, his three-run homer off of Eduardo Rodriguez put a capper on a six-run fourth inning. He would also double in two more runs in the seventh. The big game is made all the more impressive by the fact that for his career, Goins is a .219/.242/.308 hitter. He's mostly known for his ability to play multiple positions in the infield. Suffice it to say, there's still nothing of fantasy interest here. Nice game, regardless.

Blue Jays recalled INF Ryan Goins from Triple-A Buffalo.

Goins can play all around the infield defensively, but he's a .213/.231/.300 career hitter in 314 major league plate appearances. Goins is not fantasy relevant.
Thu, Apr 16, 2015 02:47:00 PM

Blue Jays optioned INF Ryan Goins to Triple-A Buffalo.

Goins was expected to make the Opening Day roster as a reserve infielder, but manager John Gibbons wants to begin the season with an eight-man bullpen instead. He should get his chance with the big league club relatively early in the year.

Ryan Goins hit a two-run homer and walked twice against the Rays on Friday.

Going is hitting .333 this spring and he is the Jays' best defensive second baseman, so he still has to be very much in the picture for a starting job. Devon Travis is making a good case, too, and Maicer Izturis is going to be on the roster either way, so Goins needs to keep it up in order to have a chance. Still, no matter how well he plays this spring, no one is going to start believing in his bat until he does it in the regular season.

Ryan Goins singled twice Tuesday before striking out bunting in the ninth of Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Goins was sent up to sacrifice with two men on in the ninth, but he showed poor technique and failed three times to get the bunt down, erasing any good feelings left over from his two knocks earlier in the contest. Goins is battling Maicer Izturis and Devon Travis for the second base job in Toronto, with Ramon Santiago and Steve Tolleson on the fringes of the race. Goins offers the best glove of the group, but he's mostly gotten the bat knocked out of his hands during previous major league stints.

Ryan Goins went 2-for-3 with a game-deciding RBI single as the Blue Jays went on to defeat the Mariners 1-0 on Wednesday.

Goins put the Jays up in the bottom of the eighth, ending Taijuan Walker's bid for a shutout, and helping Mark Buehrle get the win in his final start of the season. It was a rare bit of offensive success for Goins, who is hitting .188/.210/.265 with one home run and 14 RBI in 182 plate appearances this season.

Blue Jays recalled INF Ryan Goins from Triple-A Buffalo.

Goins is batting just .197/.22/.262 with one home run and 11 RBI over 132 plate appearances with the Blue Jays this season. He's a strong defender, but can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 11:24:00 AM

Blue Jays optioned INF Ryan Goins to Triple-A Buffalo.

Goins hit a paltry .197/.222/.262 with a homer and 11 RBI in 132 plate appearances during his stay with the Blue Jays. He will continue to provide infield depth in the minor leagues.
Sun, Aug 10, 2014 09:26:00 PM

Ryan Goins went 4-for-5 with a double and four RBI in the rout of the Red Sox on Monday.

There's no way Goins is going 4-for-5 with four RBI in a game in which his team doesn't score 14 runs. The second baseman entered with a .175 average and four RBI in 30 games and 80 at-bats this season. He'll continue to play against righties until Brett Lawrie returns, at which point the Jays will reevaluate their situations at both second and third.
