The veteran slugger has been highly productive otherwise in the second half of the season, posting a .290 average, .880 OPS, three doubles, four home runs, eight RBI, six walks, a pair of steals and eight runs across 15 post-All-Star-break contests.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Plays hero Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a home run and an additional RBI in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.
