Latest Update Paul Goldschmidt homered in the win over Cubs Sun Jul, 20, 12:18 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.
Goldy went yard for the second time in as many games and now has 18 on the season. The big fella even gets it done in the hustle department as he scored the DBacks first run of night as he motored his way from first to home on Miguel Montero base hit to center that was mishandled by rookie Arismendy Alcantra. There just seems to be nothing this guy does that isn't, shall we say golden.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Goldschmidt started off the second half on a high-note, going yard for the 17th time this season. Although the Diamondbacks aren't doing much as far as competing for a playoff spot, the team's All-Star first basemen certainly has, now slashing .308/.401/.556 with 62 RBI to accompany his long balls. As long as he can stay healthy, he remains on the best power bats to own in all of fantasy.Analyst: Matthew Beck
If he were on a better team Goldy would be in the early discussion for NL MVP, unfortunately the DBacks remain in last place in the NL West and their .419 winning percentage is the lowest among NL teams. Obviously the DBacks snake bitten start to the year is not the dude who swings Thors hammer for a bats fault as Goldschmidt is now hitting .312 with 16 home runs, a triple, 35 doubles, 61 RBI, 66 runs scored, and eight stolen bases all categories of which he pretty much leads the team in with his 35 doubles being tops in the majors.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Paul Goldschmidt powered the DBacks to their first win in 10 games as he hit his 16th home run and drove in RBIs number 57 and 58 on the season.Analyst: Michael Pichan
