Paul Goldschmidt cranks first home run of the season in win over Nationals

Paul Goldschmidt hit his first home run of the season on Tuesday, connecting for a solo shot in the first inning against Stephen Strasburg before later adding a two-run single as part of the Cardinals nine-run fifth inning. Goldschmidt finished the night 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI.

Fantasy Impact

After a four-hit performance on Opening Day, Goldy had been slumping (.231 AVG, .568 OPS) entering Tuesday, so hopefully tonight’s performance will get him going. Goldschmidt had more RBI tonight (3) than he had through his first nine games (2).

Paul Goldschmidt scratched with lower back tightness

Cardinals 1B Paul Goldschmidt has been scratched from Thursday's lineup due to lower back tightness.

Fantasy Impact

It isn't anything to be overly concerned about just yet. Goldschmidt has been replaced in the lineup by Matt Carpenter, who is also filling in at first base.

Paul Goldschmidt goes 1-for-5 with a run in win over Marlins

Paul Goldschmidt was rather quiet again on Tuesday, recording only one hit in five at-bats while scoring a run.

Fantasy Impact

After a marvelous season opener in which he went 4-for-5 with three runs and two RBI, Goldy is just 3-for-16 over the past four games with nary a homer or RBI. Remain patient with the veteran slugger, as he'll likely get rolling soon.

Paul Goldschmidt goes 4-for-5, scores three runs in opener

Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt had a big game on Thursday, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, three runs scored, and an RBI in an 11-6 season-opening win over Cincinnati.

Fantasy Impact

The veteran slugger hit second in the batting order today, ahead of superstar Nolan Arenado, and could be primed for a big year with some of the best lineup protection he's ever had in his career.

Paul Goldschmidt expected to be Cardinals' No. 2 hitter

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt indicated Wednesday that 1B Paul Goldschmidt will bat second this season.

Fantasy Impact

It also sounds as if Tommy Edman will hit first with Nolan Arenado in the three-hole. Goldschmidt is no longer the fantasy superstar he once was, but he'll clearly still be fantasy relevant in 2021. Batting second is a great spot for his value as well.
