Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Comes up big in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, two RBI and a stolen base in a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

Goldschmidt carried the Cardinals' offense in the division-clinching victory, reaching base four times. He plated the first run of the game with a single in the first inning and capped the scoring in the fourth frame with a solo homer to left center field. Goldschmidt concludes his first season in St. Louis with .260/.346/.476 slash line along with 34 home runs, 97 RBI and 97 runs scored.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

The Cardinals are resting most of their starters following Tuesday's 19-inning loss, during which Goldschmidt went 2-for-8 with a solo home run. Rangel Ravelo is starting at first base and hitting third in this one.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Slugs solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-8 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 19-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.

Goldschmidt launched a 405-foot shot to left center field in the 13th inning to give the Cardinals a short-lived lead. The 32-year-old has gone deep 33 times this year while driving in 95 runs; however, his first season in St. Louis has been a mild disappointment, as both his batting average (.259) and stolen-base total (two) are well below his career norms.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Blasts 32nd homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, three runs scored and a walk in the Cardinals' 9-7 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Making his return to Arizona for the first time as a member of the Cardinals, it looked like old times for Goldschmidt, who tagged Alex Young with a two-run blast in the fifth inning and scored three of his team's nine runs. He hasn't quite lived up the lofty standards he set during his tenure in Arizona in his debut campaign with St. Louis, but Goldschmidt has still managed respectable numbers overall, posting a .260/.348/.474 slash line with 32 homers and 94 RBI in 156 games.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Knocks in winning run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Goldschmidt's RBI was a very important one, as his ninth-inning double knocked in the winning run for the Cardinals and clinched the team's first playoff berth since 2015. Goldschmidt has certainly contributed to St. Louis' success, though perhaps not quite as much as the Cardinals had hoped, as his .258/.346/.468 season slash line is notably lower than his .290/.389/.533 mark from last season.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Powers Cards to big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with two home runs and seven RBI in Friday's 10-0 win over the Brewers.

The veteran slugger's first campaign in St. Louis has been uneven -- the homers were his first since Aug. 24 -- but Goldschmidt is heating up with the playoffs looming, slashing .324/.479/.676 in September with 16 RBI through 12 games. On the season, he now has 31 home runs, reaching the 30-HR plateau for the third straight year and the fifth time in his career, and he's 11 RBI shy of his fourth career 100-RBI season with 15 games left on the schedule.

September 12, 2019 11:28 AM
Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt is not in Thursday's lineup against the Rockies.

He is hitting .281/.452/.469 with zero home runs, 10 walks and six strikeouts in 10 games this month. Rangel Ravelo will start at first base and hit sixth.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Stays hot in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with an RBI infield single, a walk and two runs in a win over the Giants on Thursday.

Goldschmidt turned in a solid performance from the third spot in the order, churning out his second straight multi-hit effort in the process. The veteran has yet to leave the yard over the first five games of September, but he's quickly compiled six RBI with the help of a pair of doubles and a triple.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Drives in four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a walk, double, triple and four RBI on Wednesday against the Giants.

Goldschmidt didn't go deep but still put together an impressive effort, recording a pair of RBI on each of his extra-base hits. He has now driven in multiple runs in three of his past 10 games. Despite the strong run of late, Goldschmidt has taken a step back this season, as he is on pace to post the worst slash line of his career since a 48-game sample in 2011.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Heads to bench for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Reds on Sunday night.

This will be Goldschmidt's first time sitting since July 21, when the Cardinals also faced off against the Reds. He had a mediocre August, slashing .250/.301/.404 with just four home runs to go along with 15 RBI. He will sit in favor of Rangel Ravelo, who is batting sixth in the Cardinals batting order Sunday night. Goldschmidt will be back in the lineup Monday when the Cardinals host the Giants.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: On base thrice in matinee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles, a walk and a run during a win over the Reds in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday.

Goldschmidt made his fair share of contributions to the Cardinals' 10-run outburst to kick off their day, pushing his August RBI total to 15. Although it was just a so-so month at the plate (.250) for Goldschmidt after a resurgent July, he heads into September having churned out multi-hit efforts in four of his last nine games.

August 26, 2019 11:36 AM
Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Drives in pair in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a two-run single, a double and a run in a win over the Rockies on Sunday.

Goldschmidt came through with another timely hit in the blowout win, pushing him over the 70-RBI threshold for the campaign. The veteran slugger is enjoying another solid month at the plate, but he's particularly started to heat up over his last 10 games. Goldschmidt is hitting .333 (13-for-39) with three doubles, three home runs, eight RBI, three walks and eight runs over that span, leaving him just one round tripper short of reaching the 30-mark for the third consecutive season.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Slugs 29th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Rockies.

The veteran first baseman's first season in St. Louis hasn't exactly gone smoothly -- his .807 OPS would be the lowest since his abbreviated rookie season in 2011 -- but he's still supplying his usual power. Goldschmidt is now one homer shy of his third straight 30-HR campaign and the fifth of his career.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Cranks 28th long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a double, a two-run home run, a walk and two runs scored Sunday against the Reds.

Goldschmidt delivered a two-run home run in the third inning, putting the Cardinals up 2-1. The 31-year-old first baseman pieced together a solid weekend series, going 5-for-15 with two doubles, two home runs and five RBI over four contests.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Launches 27th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's 13-4 victory over Cincinnati.

Goldschmidt uncorked a two-run homer to right center in the fifth inning, and he added to the Cardinals' lead in the sixth with an RBI single to left. The 31-year-old slugger is slashing .258/.333/.467 with 27 homers and 66 RBI over 120 games in 2019.

August 12, 2019 11:48 AM
Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Records four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 4-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs in an 11-9 victory against the Pirates on Sunday.

The 31-year-old has absolutely crushed Pirates pitching this season, posting a .387 average with seven home runs and 22 RBI in 16 games against Pittsburgh. Goldschmidt is batting .333 with eight home runs and 18 RBI in his last 18 games, and a lot of that success has come against the Pirates -- he's 13-for-28 (.464 average) with five homers versus Pittsburgh during that stretch. Overall, he's batting .262 with 26 home runs, 62 RBI and 71 runs in 435 at-bats this season.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Snaps out of brief slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run in a win over the Pirates on Friday.

Following a record-setting tear in which he homered seven times over a nine-game period to finish off July, Goldschmidt has been mostly quiet to start August and was 0-for-14 with five strikeouts over the four games prior to Friday's, but he was able to break through against the Pirates with his first multi-hit effort since Aug. 3. Goldschmidt is still hitting just .185 this month, but perhaps Friday's success will lead to a new hot streak.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Slugs go-ahead blast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

Goldschmidt more or less defied odds during the first half of the season, generating a career-best hard-contact rate and yet setting a pace that would have left him with the fewest extra-base hits of his career outside of his initial 48-game stint in the majors back in 2011. Statistical outliers such as those have a way of correcting themselves over time, and Goldschmidt's performance since the All-Star break serves as a shining example of such. The slugger now has seven home runs in his last eight games, and he's hit nine overall thus far in the second half of the season. Goldschmidt's .472 slugging percentage is still well below his career .526 figure, but it's already seen a 46-point boost since the All-Star break.

Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Ties franchise-record homer streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Astros.

The first baseman has now gone deep in six straight games, tying the Cards' club record shared by Mark McGwire and Matt Carpenter. Goldschmidt will look to claim the franchise record for himself in Sunday's series finale -- while facing Wade Miley, who made his big-league debut for Arizona alongside Goldschmidt back in 2011.

July 27, 2019 08:48 AM
Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Clubs game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 5-3 win over the Astros.

His eighth-inning shot off Ryan Pressly proved to be the winning hit on the night. Goldschmidt has now gone yard in five straight games, driving in 12 runs in the process, and his power surge has helped push the Cards into first place in the NL Central. On the season, the first baseman is still slashing a disappointing .256/.341/.462, but his 23 homers and 56 RBI through 103 games have him on pace to match or exceed last year's power numbers.
