Jul 2 - 10:55 AM

Ryan Goins went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored on Wednesday in a win over the Yankees.

Goins is realistically keeping second base warm until Devon Travis can return from his shoulder injury, but his three-hit outburst was a pleasant surprise for the Blue Jays. He's hitting .321/.345/.429 with no homers and no stolen bases, which is probably the best for which Toronto could've hoped. Despite the attractive batting average, fantasy owners don't have to worry about him.
Apr 13 - 11:29 PM

Mar 9 - 4:16 PM

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.

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.
