Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt leaves the yard

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 06:21:09 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during Arizona's 6-2 loss to the Houston Astros Saturday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It was Goldschmidt's ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) 32nd home run of the season and his sixth since Tuesday, Sept. 1. For the year, the first baseman owns a .997 OPS with 101 runs and 108 RBI, and he remains a top-tier bat in all fantasy formats. He'll again be one of the top picks in drafts next spring.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt not starting Sunday

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:33:48 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is not starting Sunday, Sept. 27, against the San Diego Padres. 1B Yasmany Tomas is hitting sixth against Padres SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is getting a normal day off despite the fact he has been hot down the stretch and hot against Shields (.500 average, 4-for-8). Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is not worth the price as he has little luck against Shields.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt homers at Dodger Stadium

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 00:32:24 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt homered for the fourth consecutive game Wednesday, Sept. 23, as his team lost 4-1 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) loves the Dodger Stadium atmosphere, but the reality is Goldschmidt is hitting well as of late (.364 in past seven days). He is hitting .469 at Dodger Stadium, making him an automatic FantasyScore start.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt will rest more in 2016

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 12:05:13 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is expected to receive more games off during the 2016 season, according to manager Chip Hale. "His numbers obviously tailed off," Hale said. "Physically, you have to wear down. It's 162 games and he plays almost every day. We'll have a lot of discussions next year on where we can strategically give him days off physically."

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) posted a .340/.455/.610 slash line in the first half, but he has only returned a .278/.402/.459 line since the All-Star break. His seven home runs and 30 RBI are also let-down marks given his ability. Fantasy owners should happily trade the odd game off for more consistent results, and Goldschmidt remains a top-tier hitter and first-round selection in all formats next spring.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt eyeing cushy matchup

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 13:36:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is a .350 (7-for-20) lifetime hitter with a home run and five RBI against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner. Cashner is starting against Arizona Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Past performance isn't a guarantee for future success, especially with Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) struggling lately with a .769 OPS in September. FantasyScore owners should still view him as a high-end option, though. Goldschmidt is an elite hitter and usually doesn't slump for long.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt hitting third

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 10:02:49 -0700

Confirming a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is back in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Saturday, Sept. 5, batting third.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) had been away from the team for several days due to the birth of his first child. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him today, since he is just 4-for-21 over the past week and there are several first basemen available for far less money who have been on fire at the plate recently.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt away from team

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:05:39 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt has left the team for the birth of his first child, according to general manager Dave Stewart.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) could be away from the team for several days, so take note. Make sure he's not in your daily lineups for tonight. Brandon Drury will receive another start for the D-backs tonight, with Jake Lamb sliding over to first base. Ignore Drury everywhere.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt a great play

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:31:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt has reached base safely in 30 straight games against the Colorado Rockies, who he faces Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is expensive as your FantasyScore first baseman, but he's totally worth it at Coors Field for the second game of a doubleheader against a pitcher (Kyle Kendrick) coming off the DL and sporting an ERA over 6.00 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Be prepared to avoid Goldschmidt ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) for a couple of days in the near future.
