Showing that excellent defense can only get you so far, the Blue Jays have demoted infielder Ryan Goins to Triple-A Buffalo. Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports that the club will call up Chris Getz tomorrow to take his place on the active roster.
Goins, 26, hit just .150 with two-extra base hits and a 13/4 K/BB ratio in 66 plate appearances while making starts between second base and shortstop. He’s highly regarded for his glove, but that’s just not good enough to justify his place as a regular.
Getz hit .309 (21-for-68) with two doubles, nine RBI, and six stolen bases over 18 games in Triple-A and should get the majority of the playing time at second base for now. The 30-year-old owns a .251/.310/.309 batting line in the majors.
