Niko Goodrum gave the Tigers 4 solid years. He deserves a tip of the cap as he departs.
As the Detroit Tigers welcomed youngsters Kody Clemens and Angel De Jesus to the 40-man roster on Friday, veteran infielder Niko Goodrum was largely overlooked. If the Tigers have a couple of injuries and Goodrum is still unsigned in February, maybe a reunion will happen sooner than later. And good utility men are like good backup catchers. He got an extended look at shortstop and did really, really well. Goodrum, who had started the season reasonably well, finished with a .150 average and .489 OPS in his final 29 games.mlive.com
