Paul Goldschmidt takes batting practice Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) For the first time since fracturing his left hand in early August, Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt took part in batting practice prior to Saturday's game against St. Louis, per MLB.com. Goldschmidt should be on track to be 100 percent healthy for spring training. He finished his 2014 campaign with a .300/.396/.542 slash line with 19 homers and 69 RBI over 406 at-bats.

Surgery not needed for Paul Goldschmidt


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) A CT scan Tuesday confirmed that Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt will not need surgery on his fractured left hand, FOXSportsArizona.com reports.

Goldschmidt is roughly two-to-three weeks away from beginning strengthening work on the hand, and while he's expected to miss the rest of the season, he should be 100 percent by spring training.


Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2014) So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.

Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.

I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.

I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.


Need a replacement for Paul Goldschmidt?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/4/2014) So Paul Goldschmidt has a fractured left hand and, at least in the opinion of manager Kirk Gibson, is likely to miss the rest of the season. Bummer. He was one of the few first-round picks who had actually performed like one up to this point.

Naturally, you shouldn't expect to get first-round production off the waiver wire or for anything close to a discount on the trade market. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't aim high. If the rest of your lineup is strong, the right replacement at first base should keep you competitive.

Of course, finding the right replacement is easier said than done, but I offer some suggestions in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog. Be sure to give it a read if you haven't already.


Paul Goldschmidt likely to miss rest of season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson delivered some disappointing news Sunday in regards to first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who is sidelined due to a fractured left hand.

Gibson hinted Goldschmidt is likely done for the season, per The Arizona Republic.

Paul Goldschmidt lands on DL with fractured left hand


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) The Diamondbacks have struggled enough this season with slugger Paul Goldschmidt in their lineup. They must now get by without him - he has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left hand.

That is what an MRI taken Friday night revealed. Goldschmidt took a fastball from Ernesto Frieri off the hand in the ninth inning. He reported pain after the game, but expressed hopefulness that the problem was not serious.

Goldschmidt had slumped of late with three hits in his last 24 at-bats, but he still boasts an impressive stat line of .300/.396/.542 with 19 home runs, 69 RBI and 75 runs scored.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Diamondbacks slugger Paul Goldschmidt reported pain in his left ring finger after being plunked by Pirates reliever Ernesto Frieri in the ninth inning Friday night. The results of X-rays taken after the game have yet to be revealed. His hand was wrapped when he spoke to the media.

"I've never had any broken bones or fractures or anything like that," he told azcentral.com. "It felt OK. Obviously there's still some pain because he hit it pretty good. He throws hard."
