The Diamondbacks have Paul Goldschmidt under contract several more years, but they will consider an even longer deal for him, perhaps this winter.

"We want to make him a lifetime Diamondback," GM Dave Stewart said by phone.

As things stand, Goldschimdt, who leads the NL in RBI (83), batting average (.341) and on-base percentage (.457), is controlled through 2019, when he'll turn 32. His $32-million, five-year deal, which includes a team option for $14.5 million in '19, is extremely team friendly based on his recent play, including his $3-million '15 salary.

But an extension could even things out a bit -- as well as make the great Goldy a career D-Back.
