Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored Tuesday against the Brewers.

Goldschmidt had RBI singles in the first and seventh innings, giving him 65 RBI on the year. That's good for eighth-most in the National League, and his 14 steals are ninth-best in the league. The most complete fantasy first baseman to come along in years, the 28-year-old Goldschmidt is batting .295/.412/.504 through 98 games.

Paul Goldschmidt picked up three hits in five trips to the plate in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

All three of his base knocks were singles. Goldschmidt was scuffling coming into this one with just two hits in his last 16 at-bats, but the three-hit night pushes his season line back to .294/.412/.506.
Jul 26 - 12:04 AM

Paul Goldschmidt swatted his 15th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Giants on Sunday.

The solo shot in the sixth inning pulled the Diamondbacks to within two runs at 4-2. He finished the afternoon 1-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and is now hitting .292/.418/.510 with 15 homers, 55 RBI and 11 stolen bases on the season.

Paul Goldschmidt is now represented by Excel Sports Management.

Goldschmidt left ISE Baseball, which was formerly called Relativity Sports. The 28-year-old is signed to a team-friendly deal through 2018 with an affordable club option for 2019, so his contract status isn't an immediate concern.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 and drove home four runs on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead his club to victory over the Rockies.

Goldschmidt blasted a two-run triple in the fourth inning that increased the D'Backs advantage to 5-1. He later added a two-run single in the sixth that gave them a 7-6 lead, though they would fail to score the remainder of the ballgame. He has certainly picked up the pace offensively after a slow start and is now slashing .301/.436/.522 with 14 homers, 51 RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-2 with a double and a pair of walks in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

While the Diamondbacks did manage eight hits as a team, Goldschmidt was their only player to turn in a multi-hit game. The star first baseman has been his typically stupendous self since a bit of a slow start to the season and is now slashing .290/.427/.514 with 14 homers, 45 RBI and nine steals across 255 at-bats.

Paul Goldschmidt is getting the day off Monday afternoon against the Phillies.

Phil Gosselin will start at first base and bat second versus Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson. It's just routine rest for Goldschmidt, who's been on fire offensively. He is batting .379/.460/.667 over his last 101 plate appearances.

Goldschmidt now owns an 11-game hitting streak and is batting .409 (18-for-44) during that time. He has increased his batting average from .260 to .288 during that time and his OPS from .882 to .934.

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Goldschmidt greeted Dodgers starter Mike Bolsinger with a 408-foot homer to left-center in the first inning. It would stand as his only hit of the game. For the season as a whole, the slugger is slashing .282/.428/.498 with 12 homers, 40 RBI and eight steals over 227 at-bats. His current eight-game hitting streak has bumped his average up from .261.
Jun 14 - 1:21 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored on Tuesday versus the Astros.

The three hits boosted his batting average to .269, which is 30 points below his career average. Goldschmidt has not quite been the fantasy beast we have witnessed over the last few years, but he is a good bet to be one of the most elite hitters in baseball over the rest of the season.
May 31 - 7:22 PM

Paul Goldschmidt got on base four times in Saturday’s 8-7 win over the Padres, going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks.

It was only Goldschmidt’s ninth home run of the year, which somehow seems relatively small, but he has already driven in 30 runs. He also swiped his sixth bag of the year for good measure. The All-Star first baseman is now hitting .250/.413/.453 and remains one of the elite fantasy players in any mixed format.
May 29 - 1:36 AM

Paul Goldschmidt came through with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning on Sunday, plating the Diamondbacks' lone run in a loss to the Giants.

Goldschmidt also drew a walk in the contest, officially finishing the afternoon 0-for-2. While he continues to get on base at a very impressive clip (.390 OBP), he's hitting just .222 on the season with seven homers and 20 RBI.
May 15 - 8:24 PM

Paul Goldschmidt hit his seventh home run of the season Tuesday against the Rockies.

Goldschmidt ambushed a Gonzalez Germen pitch for his only hit in five at-bats in the game. It was his first homer since April 27, a bit of a dry spell for a guy with as much power as Goldy. The power shortage has been a microcosm of his struggles at the plate recently, as he's hitting .233/.413/.457 in 34 games overall.
May 11 - 12:57 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-2 with a sac fly, two walks and three runs scored Monday against the Rockies.

Goldschmidt has yet to dominate like he did last year, but even with his current .234 average, he still has a tasty .861 OPS. If he's not the top ranked first baseman at year's end, he should at least make it pretty close.
