Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson conceded Sunday that Paul Goldschmidt (hand) is likely out for the season.

"Realistically, it's eight weeks," Gibson said. "So he's done." Goldschmidt suffered a fractured left hand when he was hit by a pitch Friday, and even in a best-case scenario he probably won't be ready until late September. At that point, the out-of-contention Diamondbacks have no reason to push him to return. Those in redrafts can feel free to drop the slugging first baseman until you have room on your DL to stash him.
Aug 3 - 1:51 PM

Diamondbacks placed 1B Paul Goldschmidt on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left hand.

It's unclear at the moment just how much time the All-Star slugger stands to miss, but it should be a lengthy stay on the disabled list. He sustained the injury when he entered Friday's game as a pinch hitter and was drilled in the hand by a pitch from Ernesto Frieri.
Aug 2 - 4:02 PM

Paul Goldschmidt will be examined Saturday after getting hit in the hand by a pitch during Friday's game against the Pirates.

Goldschmidt was getting a rare night off, but he was called in to pinch-hit in the ninth and got plunked then. He still might be able to play Saturday.
Aug 2 - 1:58 AM

Paul Goldschmidt is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Pirates.

It's just a routine day of rest for the All-Star slugger. Jordan Pacheco will draw the start at first base and bat sixth against opposing hurler Edinson Volquez.
Aug 1 - 7:05 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's 9-3 rout of the Cubs.

Goldschmidt walked in the first inning, singled in the third, walked again in the fifth, doubled in the sixth, and then slugged a two-run shot in the eighth -- finishing the evening with three runs scored. The first baseman boasts a .314/.408/.570 batting line, 18 home runs, and 65 RBI in 97 games this season.
Jul 19 - 11:15 PM

Paul Goldschmidt smacked a walkoff two-run double in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Marlins.

Arizona entered the bottom of the 10th inning trailing by two runs with Marlins closer Steve Cishek on the mound, but Aaron Hill singled, Ender Inciarte drew a walk, David Peralta hit an RBI single, and then Goldschmidt ended it with a two-run double to left-center field. Goldy is batting .312/.404/.558 with 61 RBI in 92 games this season.
Jul 9 - 6:56 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a walk, double, RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 9-1 win over the Marlins.

During Goldie's seven-game hitting streak, he's logged five multi-hit games. All of those games have been played in July, giving the stud first baseman a 13-for-25 (.520) start to the month. Overall, he's batting .313 and is on pace for 28 homers and 105 RBI.
Jul 8 - 12:45 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Braves.

Goldschmidt finished up a strong week by hitting his 16th home run of the season off Alex Wood. His two runs batted in gives him 58 RBI for the year, third-most in the National League. The first baseman was 11-for-22 (.500) with four doubles, a triple, the homer, five runs scored and five RBI in the past week as he's enjoyed a good start to July.
Jul 6 - 4:43 PM

Paul Goldschmidt walked, doubled, tripled, and drove in two runs in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Make that back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games for Goldy. The first baseman drove in a pair of runs as part of a seven-run ninth inning in Pittsburgh. Goldschmidt is impressively slashing .308/.398/.545 with 15 home runs, 55 RBI, and eight stolen bases on the season.
Jul 3 - 10:27 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

Goldschmidt was the only one in the Arizona lineup able to muster anything off of Charlie Morton and the Pirates' bullpen. Quietly, the first baseman is having another quality season, slashing .305/.395/.536 with 15 home runs, 53 RBI, and eight stolen bases.
Jul 2 - 10:26 PM

Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss against the Pirates.

Goldschmidt singled and stole second base in the fifth inning, scoring on a Miguel Montero single. The first baseman struggled through the end of June, going just 1-for-19 in the final seven games of the month, so it's good to see him start off July with a good evening. Goldschmidt is batting .300/.391/.530 overall on the year.
Jul 1 - 9:51 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a steal and two runs scored as the Diamondbacks beat the Giants 4-1 on Friday.

A rather disappointing game for Goldschmidt, considering that he entered with seven homers and a 1.994 OPS in 28 plate appearances against Tim Lincecum. Both hits and the walk did come off Lincecum, so he upped his average versus the former Cy Young Award winner from .542 to .577.
Jun 21 - 12:56 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

Goldschmidt has a nine-game hitting streak with four homers and seven RBI in that span. Overall, the first baseman is batting .309/.374/.568. He remains among the National League leaders in nearly every offensive category, and it's not too early (OK, maybe it's too early) to start talking about him as the NL MVP.
Jun 15 - 9:17 PM

Paul Goldschmidt doubled and launched a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

He also drew a walk and scored a pair of runs, reaching base in three of four trips to the plate. Goldschmidt even swiped his fifth base of the season to put a cherry on top. The first baseman has been a fantasy monster again in 2014, batting .309/.374/.556 with 13 homers and 48 RBI to go along with his five thefts.
