Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

Goldschmidt was one of just two Diamondbacks to record hits on the evening (Jean Segura also notched a single). Goldy would come around to score on a Chris Owings RBI ground out in the seventh for the team's lone run of the contest. The All-Star first baseman is slashing .304/.421/.505 with 20 homers and 78 RBI across 461 at-bats.

Paul Goldschmidt's third hit of Monday's game was a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth as the Diamondbacks edged the Braves 9-8.

It was Goldschmidt's 19th homer. You know you're pretty good when you can be hitting .300 with an OPS over .900 and still be considered a modest disappointment. While he's not hitting like he did last year, Goldschmidt is right on pace to reach 25 homers and 100 RBI.
Aug 23 - 1:23 AM

Paul Goldschmidt had an RBI single and a solo homer in Tuesday's victory over the Mets.

Goldschmidt's opposite-field blast off of Steven Matz in the sixth inning put the D'Backs up at the time. After the Mets re-took the lead in the sixth, Goldy had an RBI single as part of a three-run seventh. The 18 home runs are a relatively disappointing total, but Goldschmidt is batting .295/.409/.495 on the season.
Aug 10 - 12:24 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 while driving in three runs and scoring another on Friday.

In his second at-bat of the seventh inning he doubled with the bases loaded as the Diamondbacks put up seven runs in the frame. Goldschmidt is unlikely to match his MVP-caliber stats from a year ago, but he is having another highly productive season in under-the-radar fashion. He is slashing .303/.418/.508 with 17 home runs, 62 runs, 68 RBI and 14 stolen bases.
Jul 30 - 2:49 AM

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.
Jul 27 - 12:33 AM

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.
Jul 3 - 8:07 PM

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.
Jun 28 - 10:30 AM

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.
Jun 26 - 7:51 PM

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.
Jun 22 - 7:41 PM

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.
Jun 20 - 10:41 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored Friday versus the Phillies.

The Diamondbacks hit six home runs on the night, including one from Welington Castillo and two each from Yasmany Tomas and Peter O’Brien. 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.
Jun 17 - 11:33 PM

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.
