The Detroit Tigers lost Niko Goodrum earlier this evening against the Baltimore Orioles thanks to a left groin strain while running to second base on his two-RBI double, and according to manager AJ Hinch, he’ll be going onto the IL. The Tigers are now looking to their Triple A affiliate for help.
To that end, they’re calling up outfielder Jacob Robson from the Mud Hens:
Tigers will place Niko Goodrum on the injured list and select the contract of outfielder Jacob Robson, A.J. Hinch said.

Robson, 26, was an 8th round pick of the Tigers (235th overall) out of Mississippi State in 2016. He has seven home runs, 33 RBI, and a .316 average in 244 plate appearances in 2021.
