Brian Goodwin provides a bright spot in Angels’ otherwise bleak season

first_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros “It really is,” Goodwin said. “You don’t think about that when you’re in it, but when you say it, and think about the other eight guys in this lineup, (batting third) is a pretty good deal.”Goodwin has been the most pleasant surprise on an Angels team that has largely been a mess of injuries and underperformance.Even Manager Brad Ausmus said Friday that he had no idea the Angels would get what they’ve gotten from Goodwin. Ausmus said he wasn’t even sure Goodwin would still be on the team once Upton returned.“Truthfully, I thought he was going to be a filler until Upton came back,” Ausmus said. “But then he just proved himself to be way too valuable. Much more than just a stop-gap player. He’s turned himself into, shoot, you could make the argument he should play more.”Goodwin, 28, had played parts of three previous seasons, showing some promise with 13 home runs and an .811 OPS in half a season of at-bats with the Washington Nationals in 2017. Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone OAKLAND — Brian Goodwin stood in the Oakland Coliseum visitors clubhouse in the same spot where he’d stood more than five months earlier, but in an entirely different place.On March 28, just before the Angels played their first game of the season, Goodwin was introducing himself to his new teammates. Having been released by the Kansas City Royals, Goodwin was picked up by the Angels as a last-minute replacement for injured Justin Upton.On Wednesday night, Goodwin was batting third for the Angels, right between Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, with Shohei Ohtani, Upton and Andrelton Simmons all behind them.Crazy? Goodwin came into Wednesday’s game with a .287 batting average, 15 homers and an .861 OPS.He said the reason he’s been able to take his game to a new level this year is mostly a change of attitude.The extended playing time at the beginning of the season gave him the confidence that he’s a capable starter, and he’s kept that attitude even after Upton came back and his playing time was reduced. Goodwin has also taken advantage of his time on the bench to hone his game.“Just because you’re not playing, you can’t be better on the field, but in reality, you can use that time,” Goodwin said. “You can apply all that stuff. You have more time to practice and focus on it. I was constantly behind the scenes getting a little bit here and a little bit there. When it was time to go out there, I felt fully prepared.”Goodwin seems to be setting himself up to have at least the same role on next year’s team. He is arbitration-eligible this winter for the first time, meaning he’ll probably make around $2 million to $3 million.Of course, Goodwin said he’s not going into the winter taking anything for granted.“I went into last winter thinking I was a starting outfielder for the Royals and I didn’t make it past spring training,” Goodwin said. “My mindset is to be in the best shape I’ve ever been, be the fastest I’ve ever been. This winter will be the same.”OHTANI DROPPED IN LINEUPOhtani had held down the No. 3 spot in the lineup every day he started until Wednesday, when Ausmus dropped him to No. 5 because of his recent slump. He had four hits in 34 at-bats coming into the game.Related Articlescenter_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Ausmus said Ohtani was doing some extra work in the cage with the hitting coaches, and if that shows results, he could return to the No. 3 spot.“If he starts hitting like he normally hits, he will certainly be back there,” Ausmus said.ALSOAusmus said Tommy La Stella “still feels at times some discomfort with certain movements,” which would seem to indicate that his return might not be quite as close as previously thought. Ausmus said the previous plan was for La Stella to join the team this weekend in Chicago, even if he wasn’t ready to be activated.UP NEXTAngels (LHP José Suarez, 2-5, 6.71 ERA) at A’s (LHP Brett Anderson, 11-9, 4.04 ERA), Thursday, 12:37 p.m., Fox Sports West, 830 AM Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
