Paul Goldschmidt scores twice in Wednesday's doubleheader

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-9 with two runs scored in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

Fantasy Impact

Goldschmidt has 10 home runs and 34 runs scored, but is batting just .253 with 24 RBI on the season. After last year when he was basically the worst player in baseball in May before coming on strong over the last four months of the season, Goldschmidt has earned a leash from his fantasy owners. But certainly, his season thus far has been lackluster.

Paul Goldschmidt drives in a run Friday

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with an RBI in the Cardinals' 7-3 loss to the Rangers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Ah, the old RBI-fielder's choice, and this one had an error in it to boot. Goldschmidt will take it, as he needs all the help he can get at the plate right now. He's put up a .697 OPS and .068 ISO in May with a 31.3% strikeout rate. Goldschmidt had similar struggles last May, so hopefully he can pull off the turnaround two years in a row. History suggests he can, and owners are best served riding it out with Goldy.

Paul Goldschmidt clobbers tenth homer Sunday

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in the Cardinals' 10-6 loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Goldschmidt extended his hit streak to four games after this bomb, and it was his first homer since April 22. He has three multi-hit games in his last four, so hopefully this is a sign of Goldy turning things around after a bit of a slump. He's still one of the game's best hitters.

Paul Goldschmidt knocks three singles in loss Friday

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with three singles in the Cardinals' 2-1 loss to the Pirates on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

That will help the ol' batting average, which rose to .263 after this game. Goldschmidt has slowed down after a fast start, but still has an .801 OPS and nine home runs on the year. He is still one of the top first baseman in the league, and his power should return soon.

Paul Goldschmidt strikes out twice in loss Tuesday

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Cardinals' 11-1 loss to the Phillies on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Goldschmidt also committed a costly throwing error in this one. Goldschmidt's been struggling lately, and hasn't homered since April 22. His strikeout rate is up to 28% and his zone-contact rate is down to 78.4%, two troubling trends. Goldschmidt slumped big time last season and turned it around, so it's too early to be worried about Goldschmidt. Owners are best off sticking with their stud.
