Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt stays hot

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:25:22 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a run, a double, a RBI and a walk during the Diamondbacks' 4-3 win over the Colorado Rockies Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: It has been more of the same for the triple-crown contender. Over his past 22 games, Goldschmidt has 13 runs, five doubles, six home runs, 19 RBI and six stolen bases with a .395/.490/.605 slash line. The fact that his season-long 1.102 OPS is higher than his mark over the past 22 games highlights just how excellent Goldschmidt has been this season, and fantasy owners have to love the 15 stolen bases.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt in plus-matchup

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 13:19:52 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is 7-for-11 with two home runs and five RBI in his career against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson. Anderson is pitching against the Diamondbacks Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Past production isn't a guarantee for future success, but Goldschmidt ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) does own a career .433 wOBA, .280 ISO and 1.033 OPS against lefties. Goldschmidt is a worthy lineup building block for FantasyScore players most nights, but especially when he faces a southpaw.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt credits success to mental side

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 14:58:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt credits much of his success in the major leagues to the mental side of the game and his work with hitting coaches Turner Ward and Alan Zinter early in his career. Goldschmidt also spent time working with Peter Crone, and mind and performance coach. "His main message is that you focus on the process," Goldschmidt said. "You want to have a quality at-bat and hit the ball hard. If you're able to do that, then it's a successful at-bat regardless of the outcome."

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is clearly one of the best hitters in the game these days, and he's hitting a ridiculous .356 (88-for-247) with 19 home runs and 57 RBI this year. He should be a daily consideration for your FantasyScore lineups if you can fit his salary in.
