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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 10 - 12:13 AM

Paul Goldschmidt blasted a pair of home runs on Sunday, yet it still wasn't enough to lead the Diamondbacks to victory over the Pirates.

Goldschmidt got the D'Backs on the board in the first inning, launching a solo shot off Pirates starter Francisco Liriano. He then belted a two-run blast off Pirates closer Mark Melancon to tie the game at 8-8 in the ninth. He also drew a pair of walks in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4 with three runs scored and three RBI. Off to a bit of a slow start by his standards, Goldschmidt is now slashing .261/.416/.536 with five homers and 15 RBI.
Apr 24 - 9:41 PM

Paul Goldschmidt is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup on Sunday.

It's just a day of rest for Goldschmidt after Saturday's extra-innings contest. The D'Backs are resting a lot of regulars, as David Peralta, Jean Segura and Welington Castillo are all on the bench. Rickie Weeks, Phil Gosselin, Brandon Drury and Chris Herrmann are drawing starts.

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Goldy cracked a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers, but the slugger found no such success in the final two games of the series. He finished out a combined 0-for-7 in those contests. In the early embryonic period of the 2016 campaign, the slugger is 8-for-37 (.216) with three homers, nine RBI and a steal. With a career batting average of .299, he likely won't be hitting near the Mendoza Line for long.
Apr 15 - 12:54 AM

Paul Goldschmidt homered and drove in two total runs Tuesday in the Diamondbacks' 4-2 defeat of the Dodgers.

Goldschmidt's solo blast in the top of the eighth inning gave the visiting Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead over Los Angeles. He also plated an insurance run on a groundout in the top of the ninth. The star first baseman has 22 career home runs against the Dodgers -- double the amount of any other active player. Carlos Gonzalez and Buster Posey have each hit 11.
