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.

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.
Apr 12 - 7:29 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a three-run triple in Tuesday's 11-6 win over the Rockies.

Goldschmidt launched a long solo home run off Rockies starter Chad Bettis in the first inning to open the contest's scoring. He wouldn't strike again until the seventh inning, but boy howdy, would he strike. In the frame, Goldschmidt stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and the Diamondbacks clinging to an 8-6. He promptly unloaded said bases, tripling against Jason Gurka to extend the lead to 11-6. That score would stand as the final. Schmidty is among the elite of the elites and should provide a stupendously productive bat for 2016 fantasy purposes. Last year, he hit .321/.435/.570 with 33 homers, 110 RBI and a career-high 21 steals.
Apr 6 - 1:29 AM

Paul Goldschmidt slugged a two-run homer in Friday’s 11-8 win over the Dodgers.

It was his first home run of the spring. After batting .321 with 33 home runs, 110 RBI, and 21 stolen bases last season, Goldschmidt has cemented himself as the no-doubt top fantasy option at first base. Mike Trout still figures to be the No. 1 overall pick in most leagues, but Goldy is an interesting alternative to consider.
Mar 18 - 8:22 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead two-run home run in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Astros.

Goldschmidt struck a temporary blow to the Astros' playoff chances when he launched a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning to snap a 3-3 tie. The Astros would ultimately sneak in to the final Wild Card spot thanks to an Angels loss. For his part, the 28-year-old slugger finishes the 2015 regular season with a beautiful .321/.435/.570 triple-slash, 33 homers, 110 RBI and 21 steals.

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a strikeout in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Goldschmidt doubled off Rockies starter Chad Bettis, his 37th two-bagger of the season. Overall, he's slashing .315/.432/.557 with 31 homers, 106 RBI and 21 steals. The steals number is the best in his career and should that triple-slash hold steady over the closing days, all three of those numbers would represent career bests as well.

DFS players smelled the juicy potential for a four-bagger from a mile away. Goldschmidt was 3-for-7 against Dodgers' SP Carlos Frias this year and he came into this game having homered in two straight games. The stud first baseman is up to 31 homers and 103 RBI.
