Latest Update Goldschmidt said there was no pain and his hand felt good after taking batting practice Saturday Sun Sep, 28, 11:21 AM
Is a massive specimen with big-time power and run-producing ability. Also has a great batting eye. A good athlete, he is also adept with the glove. Can hit for a very good average and steal a base, too.
Flaws: : Strikes out a bit too much and generally lacks a bit of consistency with the stick (otherwise, he'd perhaps be an all-time great). Specificallty, he can be too streaky when it comes to the home-run ball.
He missed almost the last two months of the season with a broken hand he suffered after getting hit in the hand by a pitch. He should be a top five pick in fantasy leagues next season.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
It's nice to see Goldschmidt swinging a bat again and he'll be back in full force next season. He was well on his way to another typical Goldschmidt season with his .300 average, 19 home runs and 241 ISO over. 406 at-bats. He should, once again, be a first round draft choice for fantasy leagues next year.Analyst: Howard Bender
The lack of surgery is a plus as it will not require an extended recovery time but Goldschmidt is still out for the remainder of the MLB season. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
What a blow to fantasy owners as Goldschmidt was not only a top first basemen but was also a top 10 fantasy player. Prior to his injury Goldschmidt was hitting .300 with 75 runs, 19 home runs, 69 RBI and nine stolen bases. Mark Trumbo is taking over first base duties with Goldschmidt on the shelf.
