Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with his 17th home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Reds. Goldschmidt might not match last season's 33 home runs, but he's still putting up great numbers once again. His 17 home runs are joined by 63 RBI, 13 steals and a .289/.410/.504 slash line. Goldschmidt remains an elite fantasy option.
Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with a solo homer, a steal and two runs Sunday against the Giants. Goldschmidt's 15th homer of the year came in the sixth inning to bring the Diamondbacks within two runs in a game they'd go on to lose in extra innings. With the blast, he broke a 12-game homerless drought, and he now has a .510 slugging percentage on the year.
Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with four RBI in Sunday's loss to the Rockies. Though he didn't homer in four games at Coors Field, Goldschmidt did go 8-for-17 with six RBI. In the process, he bumped his season average to .301. After hitting .300 or better in each of the last three seasons, Goldschmidt is a good bet to keep his average north of .300 again this season.
Goldschmidt reached base four times in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays, going 2-for-2 with two walks. Goldschmidt entered June batting .269, but he's now got the average up to .290. A career .298 hitter, Goldschmidt figures to keep the hot hitting going and produce counting stats at an elite level.
Goldschmidt is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies, according to MLB.com's Steve Gilbert. Goldschmidt is rolling right now with at least one hit in 13 straight games, but he had not had a day off since April 17, and manager Chip Hale decided that Monday was an opportune time to give Goldschmidt his first day off in over two months. With Goldschmidt opening Monday's game on the bench, Phil Gosselin will get the start at first base.
