A different topic but I think Goodwin's expectations are a bit off. According to MLBTR.com:

The Nationals don’t have a particularly clear role for outfielder Brian Goodwin, but as Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com writes, new skipper Davey Martinez intends to find ways to utilize Goodwin. The 27-year-old doesn’t exactly sound like he’s excited by the organization’s plans after he turned in a solid 2017 campaign. “I don’t think my role is defined, or ever has been since I’ve been in camp,” Goodwin said. “I come into camp and I feel like I’m trying to earn a spot, trying to find somewhere – a home, where I can play every day, start 162 games and play every day for somebody whether it’s here or anywhere.”

Yeah...he's not an everyday starter here, so we may as well make him happy and deal him for something we can use...

3 for 16 with 8 K's isn't exactly something that screams "Play Me!"
