Former MLB utility player Niko Goodrum has signed with the KBO's Lotte Giants.
Goodrum is set to earn $400K on his deal for the remainder of the 2023 season. The former Twins, Tigers, and Astros player has spent the first portion of the 2023 season with the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate in Worcester, hitting a solid .280 with eight homers, seven stolen bases, and an impressive .409 wOBA across 65 appearances. He is a lifetime .226 hitter with 42 home runs and 46 stolen bases across 402 games at the big-league level.
Astros designated hitter Niko Goodrum went 2-for-4, hitting one double and scoring one run in the Astros' 4-0 win over the Mariners.

Goodrum is the ultimate utility man. Last season in Detroit, he played first, second, third base, shortstop, left field, and center field. He does get the added benefit of being in the Astros solid lineup, though his role will still be uncertain. It does help that he can play so many places in the field. Last season Goodrum slashed .214/.292/.359 with six home runs and 14 stolen bases.
