The Chicago White Sox won a huge game on Saturday afternoon. It was a great game for everybody involved which is why they won by a final score of 15-2. There is a lot to be happy about from Dylan Cease to the starting lineup. There is one player, however, that really sticks out above the rest. That is Brian Goodwin. For some reason, he was allowed to be in the starting lineup which is crazy enough on its own but it was even worse when you saw that he was batting second.

The Chicago White Sox saw Brian Goodwin have a fantastic game on Saturday.

Brian Goodwin has hopped around the league a lot since making his MLB debut in 2016. He has played for the Washington Nationals, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels, and Cincinnati Reds before making his way to Chicago to play for the White Sox. He had been playing in AAA Charlotte this season and it wasn’t necessarily going well for him there either.

For some reason, he got the call over someone like Gavin Sheets or Jake Burger when Nick Madrigal went down. It was tough to see this lineup when it was first announced but Goodwin made the most of it. In fact, he was one of the most impactful hitters they had on this given day.

Goodwin went 2 for 5 with a home run, five RBIs, three runs scored, and one walk. Talk about having a very good day, Goodwin was as good as it gets. He was a huge part in sending the White Sox on an offensive explosion. It was really cool to see for a guy who has had so much trouble sticking with a team over the past five years.

He got the opportunity to play because of all the injury trouble that the White Sox have had so far this year. It is tough but good teams grind through it. If you want to get over these injuries and still be the second team to reach 40 wins, you need to have guys like Brian Goodwin step up to the plate.

Goodwin’s playing time probably won’t increase too much but it is good to know that he is capable of having a day like this from time to time. Hopefully, they are able to get fully healthy again soon which will make their depth even more useful.

The White Sox are back at it again on Sunday with another day game. The Detroit Tigers haven’t officially named their starter yet but the White Sox are going to trot out Carlos Rodon which should be really fun. With a chance to sweep a division rival in their ballpark, you can expect them to be extra motivated.
