Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt stuffs the stat line

Sun, 29 May 2016 05:28:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with two runs, a double, a two-run home run and a stolen base during Arizona's 8-7 win over the San Diego Padres Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: It was been a bit of a rough start for Goldschmidt, as he sits with a .250/.413/.453 slash line, but his counting stats are solid: 26 runs, nine home runs, 30 RBI and six stolen bases. The cross-category production is what made him an early pick in drafts this spring, and he's been turning it on with 12 runs, three home runs, 14 RBI, three stolen bases and a .302/.425/.508 line over his past 18 games. Barring injury, Goldschmidt will be among the best fantasy contributors when it's all said and done, especially since his mediocre start appears to be behind him.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt owns Rockies

Wed, 11 May 2016 11:52:42 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt has reached base safely in 43 straight games against the Colorado Rockies, which is a club record against any opponent.

Fantasy Tip: Goldy is only hitting .233, but he's in Coors Field again Wednesday against Chad Bettis. He's a high-end consideration that shouldn't take much time to click his name into your DFS lineup.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt too selective?

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:55:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt's slow start might be because of his selectivity at the plate, according to manager Chip Hale. He entered Thursday with a .242 average but had a league-high 28 walks, giving him a .421 on-base percentage and an .894 OPS. Goldschmidt has reached two strikes in 60% of his plate appearances this year, which is up from 53% in his career. He's swinging at the first pitch just 17.3% of the time, down from 23.9% entering this season. He's hitting .180 with two strikes this year, down from his career .224 average.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't the start his owners hoped for, but Goldy also has six home runs and 16 RBI, so it could be a lot worse. Opposing pitchers are being careful with the slugger, too, and perhaps he's just not getting good pitches to hack at. Regardless, Goldschmidt should turn things around eventually, and he continues to be a must-start everywhere.

Diamondbacks | Quintet of Arizona hitters catch a break

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 12:02:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt, OF David Peralta, 2B Jean Segura, OF Socrates Brito and C Welington Castillo are not in the lineup on Sunday, April 17, against San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin. 2B/OF Rickie Weeks will start in left and bat second, INF Phil Gosselin will play first base and hit third, INF/OF Brandon Drury will move to second base and bat fifth, OF Chris Owings will man center and bat seventh while C Chris Herrmann will set up behind the plate and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: For some perspective on how much offensive firepower Arizona is resting on Sunday, Yasmany Tomas moves up from eighth in Saturday's lineup to fourth in today's order. In the wake of last night's 14-inning marathon, the most recommended plays could the pitchers (Erlin and Patrick Corbin), each of whom will face a lineup missing about a good chunk of its regular hitters.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt slugs third homer

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 16:33:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt hit his third home run of the season Tuesday, April 12, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. For the game, he was 1-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he's hitting only .267, owners have to be happy with his power numbers thus far, as not only does he have three home runs in eight games, but he's also posted nine RBI to begin the new campaign as well. In other words, he's still performing like one of the most valuable players in all of fantasy baseball.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt excels vs. Rockies

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 11:32:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt has reached base safely in 37 straight games against the Colorado Rockies, which is one shy of a team record against any opponent.

Fantasy Tip: What's new? Goldschmidt is a beast at the plate and was in consideration for the No. 1 overall fantasy pick this year. He is a must-start at all times and is worth paying up for today against Tyler Chatwood, who is making his first start since 2014 after two Tommy John surgeries.

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.
