Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 and swiped his second base of Cactus League play as the Diamondbacks fell to a split-squad Indians team in Goodyear on Friday.
The 27-year-old says that he's completely recovered from the broken hand that ended his 2014 season prematurely, and he's hitting a cool .357 (5-for-14) to begin the spring season. He remains a five-category monster and should be one of the first few names called in all fantasy drafts this spring. Mar 13 - 7:46 PM

Paul Goldschmidt told reporters Thursday that his broken left hand is completely healed.

Goldschmidt broke the hand last August, ending his 2014 season with a .300/.396/.542 batting line, 19 home runs, and 69 RBI in 109 games. The 27-year-old first baseman will wear a protective pad under his left batting glove this season and should again be a fantasy monster. He produced 36 home runs, 125 RBI, and 15 stolen bases in 2013.

The Diamondbacks have received permission to interview Athletics third base coach Chip Hale.

They've also been given permission to interview Dodgers third base coach Lorenzo Bundy and have requested to interview Rangers interim manager Tim Bogar. Assuming the request to interview Bogar is granted, that brings the total of managerial candidates to 11. Also on the list are Don Wakamatsu, Joe McEwing, Sandy Alomar, Jr., Jim Tracy, Jay Bell, Andy Green, Phil Nevin and Turner Ward.

Paul Goldschmidt took batting practice on the field Saturday for the first time since fracturing his left hand in early August.

The workout went well, and Goldschmidt is on track to be 100 percent healthy by the start of spring training next year. The first baseman batted .300/.396/.542 with 19 home runs and 69 RBI in 109 games this season.

A CT scan on Tuesday confirmed that Paul Goldschmidt will not need surgery to repair his fractured left hand.

Goldschmidt is 2-3 weeks from strengthening work. The slugging first baseman is done for the season, but he'll have a regular offseason and be ready to roll for spring training.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
