Paul Goldschmidt notched his second consecutive three-hit game, going 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Goldschmidt knocked in the Diamondbacks' first run in the first inning with a single and came around to score on Mark Trumbo's triple. In the eighth, he capped a three-run inning with a two-run double. Goldschmidt, as expected, has been deadly at the dish, batting .315/.425/.575 with five home runs and 19 RBI. The 2013 runner-up in NL MVP balloting, Goldschmidt could be on his way to another MVP-caliber season.

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

Even Earth's mightiest heroes sometimes flail in futility against A.J. Burnett. That was the case with Goldschmidt, who came into the game slashing .298/.420/.596, with five home runs, 16 RBI and 11 runs scored. None of that mattered on Saturday. When you see guys like Goldschmidt or Mike Trout take the collar, your best response is to shrug and wait for the day. If he stays healthy (he played in just 109 games in 2014), he's on his way to a monster season.

Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer against the Giants on Sunday.

Goldschmidt smacked the first inning shot off of Giants starter Tim Hudson. The first baseman would finish the game 1-for-3 with two runs scored and two RBI. Goldschmidt's numbers are Mike Trout-esque to this point. He's hit five home runs, knocked in 15 and is slashing .313/.421/.667. If Goldschmidt stays healthy (he played in just 109 games in 2014), he should post monster numbers.
Apr 19 - 7:41 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's 3-2 setback versus the Padres.

Goldie got to Brandon Morrow in the first inning, but Arizona did precisely zero offensively from there on out. Goldschmidt is raking early, boasting a .344/.447/.656 slash line with three round-trippers and nine runs cashed in.
Apr 16 - 12:03 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 and hit a three-run homer versus the Dodgers on Friday.

Goldschmidt was without an RBI in the opening series against the Giants, but he did go 3-for-9 with four walks and four runs scored. The walks figure to be a constant for him this year, even though the guys hitting behind him -- David Peralta and Mark Trumbo for the most part -- aren't too bad.
Apr 11 - 12:48 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Thursday's Cactus League game with the White Sox.

Goldschmidt doubled in Arizona's first run in the first inning, then made it a 5-0 game with a second-inning RBI double, both off of Jose Quintana. With the D'Backs headed to Chase Field for a pair of exhibition games with the Cubs before beginning the regular season, Goldschmidt sports a .278 average (15-for-54) with five doubles and two home runs on the spring. The expectations are high for Goldschmidt once again now that he's healed up from a fractured hand suffered last season.
Apr 2 - 6:46 PM

Paul Goldschmidt blasted his second Cactus League homer on Tuesday, helping to propel the Diamondbacks to an 8-7 victory over the Angels.

He also picked up a pair of singles, finishing the contest 3-for-5. The 27-year-old slugger is now hitting .255 (13-for-51) with two long balls and five RBI on the spring. Goldschmidt appears to be fully recovered from the fractured hand that cut his 2014 season short, and should be one of the first few names called in all fantasy drafts.
Mar 31 - 11:14 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Thursday's 3-3 Cactus League tie with the Padres.

Goldschmidt hasn't registered a hit since March 20, a span of four hitless games. The first baseman missed a large chunk of last season with a fractured hand, but still should be held in extremely high regard as he was in 2013, when he led the league in home runs, RBI, slugging percentage, and OPS.
Mar 26 - 7:48 PM

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.
Feb 19 - 1:32 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks have been granted permission to interview Rangers interim manager Tim Bogar for their managerial vacancy.

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.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks have added Joe McEwing to their list of managerial candidates.

McEwing has been the White Sox third base coach for the past three seasons and has strong ties to Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa. Sandy Alomar, Jr., Jim Tracy, Jay Bell, Andy Green, Phil Nevin, and Turner Ward are among the other names Arizona is considering to replace Kirk Gibson.
