Diamondbacks' Paul Goldschmidt blasts 12th home run of the year
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt went 2 for 3 at the plate in Arizona's 4-3 win over the Cubs on Sunday.
Goldschmidt did his damage in the third inning when he blasted a two-run shot off of Jason Hammel to deep center field, his 12th of the season.
"I've never seen a guy, basically it's just the flick of his wrist to hit it that far," D-backs manager Chip Hale said to MLB.com. "He's got such good mechanics with his hands to stay through the ball. When he gets on a run, yes, it's enjoyable to watch. We have to have guys behind him hit because what's gonna happen is he's not gonna get a whole lot of pitches to hit."
Goldschmidt continues to tear up pitching early in the season and is now hitting .333 with 38 RBI in 156 at-bats.
Diamondbacks getting aggressive on the basepaths
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) The Diamondbacks have been speed demons so far this season. Arizona entered Saturday's game tied for second in the National League with 40 stolen bases, led by A.J. Pollock with 10 and Paul Goldschmidt with eight.
"What we've really tried to do the whole year is if there's an opportunity there, be aggressive with it," Goldschmidt said to MLB.com. "It's just another way we can get a guy into scoring position and make it a little bit easier on offense to score."
Pollock is tied for fourth in the NL with his stolen bases and 12 different players have recorded at least one stolen base.
"If it is a good spot and it's a good opportunity to take one, we'll try to take it," Pollock said. "We've got a pretty dynamic team and overall our team speed is pretty good. You've got a couple guys that kind of fly under the radar with speed and they can sneak one here and there."
Diamondbacks 1B Goldschmidt homers against Cubs
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt made good use of the extra rest he got on Thursday. The slugger, who sat out Thursday's game due to rest, went 3 for 5 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 5-4 win against the Cubs on Friday.
Goldschmidt tied the game with a two-run home run in the 10th inning off Cubs' closer Hector Rondon.
In 41 games, Goldschmidt is hitting .331/.429/.623 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI in 151 at-bats.
Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt back in lineup, bats third
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who was rested on Thursday, is back in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs. But, Goldschmidt is not batting in his typical clean-up spot.
Instead, he will bat third for the first time this year, while third baseman Yasmany Tomas hits fourth. Tomas got off to a slow start at the plate following his promotion on April 15. But he's been red-hot lately, going 14 for 32 with three doubles and a home run over his last nine games.
D-Backs' Paul Goldschmidt gets day off for the first time in 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt was not penciled into the starting lineup for the first time all season for Thursday's afternoon game against the Marlins. Mark Trumbo, who usually starts in right field, started at first base in Goldschmidt's absence.
Goldschmidt, who had started the first 39 games, has been mired in a bit of a hitting slump for a couple of weeks. Since May 10, he is batting just .200 (7 for 35) in his last 10 games. He has one triple, one home run, two doubles, five RBI, six runs, five walks and seven strikeouts in that span.
"This is more of a mental day off," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said, per the Associated Press. "To ask a guy to play 162 games today is tough to do."
|2014 summary: Paul Goldschmidt was on his way to another MVP-caliber season when a pitch fractured his left hand, ending his season two months prematurely. In 109 games, Goldschmidt batted .300 with 19 home runs, 69 RBI and nine stolen bases. Despite missing almost one-third of the season, Goldschmidt finished 13th among first basemen in Rotisserie value and 15th in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: Goldschmidt actually resumed taking batting practice during the final series of the season, and he is expected to be fully ready for Diamondbacks spring training.
2015 outlook: There was no regression from Goldschmidt's 2013 breakout, as he was roughly on pace to bat .300, post a .400 on-base percentage and hit 30 home runs. Owners should count on similar production this season -- and this time, for the full season -- and they should plan on using one of the first six picks overall to draft him in mixed leagues.
