Blue Jays: Former players suiting up for new teams in 2019
Ryan Goins- Chicago White Sox
Ryan Goins will attempt to rejuvenate his career as a member of the Chicago White Sox in 2019. The infielder saw action in only 41 MLB games last season with the Kansas City Royals before being released in July. Goins would latch on with the Philadelphia Phillies a day later but would be reassigned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the remainder of the season.
Goins spent five seasons with the Blue Jays up until the conclusion of the 2017 season. In 448 games with Toronto, Goins hit .228/.275/.335 with 20 homers and a 3.3 WAR. Goins saw action in 14 postseason games hitting .146 with a homer in 46 plate appearances.
Goins was better known for his defensive prowess and his innate ability to provide stability on the infield. The 30-year old sports a career .989 fielding percentage while playing a multitude of positions.
The former Blue Jay will have a tough task at hand to crack an Opening Day lineup, however, the infielder can still be an asset as a defensive replacement off the bench for the White Sox moving forward.
