Detroit Tigers to call up outfielder Jacob Robson as Niko Goodrum heads to IL

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:

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.
