Goldy is no longer the fantasy superstar he once was, but he has salvaged his season somewhat. Perhaps this is the new normal we should expect from him in St. Louis.

Goldschmidt has had an underwhelming start to his Cardinals tenure, batting .258/.333/.467 with 28 home runs in 126 games. Yet the first baseball followed a dreadful June by homering 11 times in July. Little has changed in his batted-ball profile from last year, when he hit .330/.420/.602 with 26 of his 33 homers after a disastrous May, so he still has plenty of time to recover. The stolen bases, however, are likely never coming back. Once a routine source of double-digit steals, Goldschmidt has one this season. That means it's time to close the book on him as a first-round stud.

Fantasy owners have been disappointed with Goldschmidt and wondering if he has hit the inevitable brick wall that comes with age. It is possible but more likely that he is just in an extended slump as we've seen from him before. Expect fireworks after the break.
