  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Three hits in twin bill

    Goldschmidt went 3-for-8 with a solo home run, a walk and two total runs scored across both games of Thursday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

    Goldschmidt was part of the Cardinals' seventh-inning rally in the matinee, and he got aboard three times in a less dramatic win in the nightcap. The first baseman has hit .351 (13-for-37) with six long balls in nine contests since the All-Star break. For the season, he's produced a .332/.413/.614 slash line, 26 homers, 82 RBI, 72 runs scored and five stolen bases in 99 games.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Drives in three in win

    Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and three RBI in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Cubs.

    Goldschmidt knocked a two-run single in the third inning and a solo shot in the fifth. This was the first baseman's fourth multi-hit effort in seven contests since the All-Star break, and he's swatted five homers in that span. For the season, the steady 34-year-old is up to a .332/.412/.611 slash line with 25 long balls, 81 RBI, 70 runs scored and five stolen bases through 97 games.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Back from restricted list

    Goldschmidt (personal) was reinstated from the restricted list by the Cardinals on Friday.

    Goldschmidt was unable to travel to Canada for the Cardinals' two-game series against the Blue Jays earlier this week, but he'll now rejoin the team ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Nationals. The 34-year-old has homered in his last four games, going 8-for-18 with five long balls and 10 RBI.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Officially placed on restricted

    Goldschmidt (personal) was placed on the restricted list Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Goldschmidt is one of three Cardinals who will be ineligible to play in the two-game series in Toronto because of his vaccination status. The Cardinals start a three-game series with the Nationals on Friday, which the first baseman will be reinstated ahead of. Cory Spangenberg had his contract selected from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday and will replace Goldschmidt on the active roster.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Homers twice before two-game absence

    Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with two homers and three RBI in a 6-3 loss Sunday in Cincinnati.

    Goldschmidt was the only player to get a hit off Tyler Mahle, and he took the starter deep twice, accounting for all the Cardinals' runs. He's now homered in four straight games -- five if you include his All-Star Game blast. It appears that the only thing that can stop Goldschmidt right now is the Canadian government, as he won't be able to be with the team due to the COVID-19 vaccination requirement in Canada when St. Louis begins a two-game series in Toronto on Tuesday. He'll rejoin the Cardinals when they return stateside Friday in Washington.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Unavailable in Toronto

    Goldschmidt, who is starting at first base Sunday versus the Reds, won't be able to travel with the Cardinals for the two-game set against the Blue Jays this week due to his vaccination status, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Goldschmidt has homered in three straight games and will have a chance to build on that streak Sunday, but he won't be able to travel with the team to Toronto on Tuesday since he's apparently unvaccinated. Nolan Arenado will also be unavailable, leaving St. Louis without its best two players for the two-game set. A move to the restricted list will come ahead of Tuesday's series opener.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Mashes 21st homer

    Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 9-5 loss to the Reds.

    Goldschmidt ended a 17-game homer drought just before the All-Star break and also went yard during the Midsummer Classic. He kept up the power display Friday, delivering a two-run blast in the fifth inning, though the Cardinals' offense couldn't keep up in this contest. The first baseman has multiple hits in six of 18 games in July and owns a .331/.414/.596 slash line with 21 homers, 72 RBI, 65 runs scored and five stolen bases through 91 games overall.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Homer, three RBI in victory

    Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and one additional RBI in Saturday's victory over the Reds.

    The starting first baseman for the National League All-Star team, Goldschmidt is now up to 20 home runs, and his OPS is over 1.000 for the season (1.004). Since Goldschmidt is playing Tuesday, the Cardinals may look to rest him Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Gets rare rest day

    Goldschmidt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The National League MVP candidate looks to be getting some routine maintenance after he started in each of the Cardinals' last 17 games while contributing a 1.035 OPS, two stolen bases, 13 runs and seven RBI over that stretch. Albert Pujols will draw a rare start at first base in place of Goldschmidt.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Adds another steal Saturday

    Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Phillies.

    Baserunners came at a premium Saturday, with Goldschmidt representing the Cardinals' last player to get aboard. He reached on an error and stole second in the ninth inning, but he was left stranded in the narrow defeat. The first baseman has hit safely in 27 of the last 36 games since the start of June, batting .323 in that stretch. Shockingly, that's actually worse than his season mark of .340, and he's added a 1.032 OPS with 19 home runs, 65 RBI, 61 runs scored, five steals and 28 doubles through 83 contests overall. The 34-year-old will likely continue to be one of baseball's most consistent hitters, and he'll be recognized for his efforts in just over a week at the All-Star Game as the National League's starting first baseman.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Steals base Thursday

    Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk and a stolen base Thursday in a 3-2 win in Atlanta in extra innings.

    Goldschmidt doubled in the first inning and walked and stole a base in the eighth. He struck out twice and has seen an uptick in his strikeout rate with 23 punchouts in his last 82 plate appearances. Despite the increase in strikeouts, the first baseman continues to have a hot bat and has a .324/.415/.563 during that span.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Scores twice in win

    Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday's victory over the Phillies.

    Goldschmidt scored in the first inning thanks to a Nolan Arenado home run, then again on a Lars Nootbaar walk with the bases loaded in the fifth. The first baseman continued his spectacular season with back-to-back two hit performances. He has at least one hit in six of his last seven games, including four multi-hit performances, and is now slashing .346/.428/.633 on the season.
