The Houston Astros opened a spot on their active roster Sunday when they optioned infielder Niko Goodrum to Triple-A Sugar Land.

The move came after utility man Mauricio Dubon officially was added to the roster after a trade from the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Goodrum, 30, has struggled in his first season with the Astros, batting .116 with one RBI in 15 games (43 at-bats). In six major league seasons, Goodrum is a .226 hitter with 42 home runs and 152 RBIs.

The Astros added Goodrum in the offseason on a $2.1-million free-agent deal after he was non-tendered by the Detroit Tigers.
