Niko Goodrum (groin) may not be able to play again this season. "It just depends on how he does after the recovery," Gardenhire said, regarding Goodrum's chances of returning from the 10-day injured list. "He's going to have to lay off of baseball activities so, we'll see. I'm sure he will try to get back and play a little bit. But we'd be pushing the envelope with that." (Source: Chris McCosky of Detroit News)

Fantasy Impact: Goodrum was placed on the IL over the weekend after aggravating his left groin Aug. 17th. After meeting with Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia on Monday, Goodrum's injury was reclassified as an adductor strain. Goodrum won't be cleared to resume on-field work until at least mid-September. Willi Castro and Ronny Rodriguez will likely handle the majority of the work in the middle infield the rest of the season while Goodrum is on the shelf.
