Paul Goldschmidt goes deep for number 11

Paul Goldschmidt returned back to Chase Field after a productive weekend road trip in San Diego and took advantage, going 2-for-4 and launching a ball out of the yard in the sixth inning.

Fantasy Impact

As if he is trying to keep himself balanced, Goldschmidt now has both 11 steals and 11 home runs. While it should not be a surprise, eight of Goldy's 11 homers have come at home in Arizona. Last year when he hit 24, 15 of them came at Chase Field, but in 2015, he actually had more on the road (20) than he did at home (13). Goldschmidt will continue to find ways to get his numbers, but he may be relying on the dry air a little more every year.

Paul Goldschmidt has a solid series against the Padres

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-9 with two walks, three runs scored, two RBIs, and a steal in this weekend's series against the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Goldschmidt has been outstanding as usual this season, with a 1.010 OPS, 10 home runs, and 11 steals, putting him on pace for nearly a 40-40 campaign. Goldschmidt has reached base in 11 straight games, and looks to be ready to challenge for career-highs in nearly every statistical category.

Paul Goldschmidt steals home

Paul Goldschmidt was able to steal home as part of a double steal on Tuesday against the Mets. It was his 10th stolen base of the year.

Fantasy Impact

The Diamondbacks are one of the most aggressive teams on the bases, and are able to use the double steal very efficiently. Tuesday they were able to draw a throw to second with Goldschmidt on third. The Mets infielders tried to stop both Chris Owings and Goldy, effectively allowing both to steal safely. Goldschmidt is now one-third of the way to his steal total of last year, in only 41 games.

Paul Goldschmidt just misses homering in third straight

Paul Goldschmidt gave the ball a ride in the eighth inning and it was initially ruled a home run. That call was reversed after replay review and Goldy was left with his second double of the night. He would finish the game 2-for-5 with a run scored.

Fantasy Impact

Paul Goldschmidt has been everything a fantasy owner could want and more through the first 40 games of the season. He is currently enjoying both a career high in walk rate, and a career low in K%, leading him to be among the leaders in BA, OBP, and OPS. The only concern for Goldy right now would be rest, as he has played in every single game for the Diamondbacks this year. Of course he has only missed seven games in the last two years combined, so we know he is durable enough to last all season.

Paul Goldschmidt blasts two home runs in loss to Pirates

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBi in an extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

Goldschmidt is off to a terrific start in 2017, slashing .314/.450/.584 with 10 home runs in 137 at-bats. He continues to fly way under-the-radar because he plays on a smaller market team on the west-coast, but Goldschmidt is as talented as anybody in baseball. Not only does he possess above-average power, but can also steal bases. He is consistently underowned in DFS circles due to his lack of exposure on a national scale.
