Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in the 4-1 win over the Mets on Wednesday.
Goldschmidt put the Cardinals on the board Wednesday with a solo shot off Marcus Stroman in the first inning. The 33-year-old is slashing .248/.296/.393 with four home runs, 16 RBI and 20 runs scored in 29 games. He has seven hits in his last four games. The first baseman gets his fair share of balls to hit and receives many scoring opportunities batting third in front of Nolan Arenado.
Goldschmidt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Goldschmidt will head to the bench for only the second time in 28 games this season in what amounts to a maintenance day following a busy Saturday night in which he went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a double, a walk and four runs. Matt Carpenter will fill in at first base for Goldschmidt, who is batting .234 with three home runs, one steal, 18 runs and 15 RBI across 114 plate appearances.
Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Wednesday against the Phillies.
Goldschmidt was one of the few sources of offense for the Cardinals when he drove his third home run of the season over the wall in the third inning. Although that was his first long ball since April 19, Goldschmidt has now driven in seven runs across his last six games. For the season, he's hitting .234/.280/.372 with 14 runs and 14 RBI across 100 plate appearances.
Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the Phillies on Tuesday, giving him six RBI over his last five contests.
Goldschmidt has been delivering with men on base all season, with Tuesday's pair of RBI pushing him into a three-way tie for second on the team with 13. The veteran is otherwise coming up empty frequently as evidenced by his .231/.271/.341 slash, but his timely hitting is tiding his fantasy managers over until he begins pulling those numbers much closer to his career norms.
Goldschmidt is slashing just .241/.284/.349 over 88 plate appearances heading into Monday's series opener against the Phillies, but he's hitting .303 and .429 over 33 total PAs with men on base and men in scoring position, respectively.
The knack for timely hitting, which surfaced again in Sunday's win over the Reds when Goldschmidt laced a two-run single, has led to nine total RBI over the aforementioned sample. Conversely, the veteran is just 10-for-50 with two doubles and a pair of home runs with the bases empty, leading to the early underwhelming line.
Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a two-run double, a walk and a run in a win over the Reds on Friday.
The veteran's third-inning two-bagger extended the Cardinals' lead to 3-0 at the time and gave Goldschimdt his third multi-RBI effort of the season. The 33-year-old had gone hitless in three of his previous four games, however, and he's underwhelmed early with a .240/.288/.360 slash through 80 plate appearances.
Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 12-5 win over the Nationals.
He launched a solo shot off Joe Ross in the third inning -- one of five Cards homers on the night -- and also chipped in an RBI single in the eighth. Goldschmidt has three multi-hit performances and both his home runs on the year over the last six games, pushing his slash line up to .266/.309/.391.
Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored and three RBI on Tuesday against the Nationals.
Goldschmidt quickly got on track, taking Stephen Strasburg yard in his first at-bat for his first home run of the season. It was also his first extra-base hit since Opening Day, and he entered Tuesday's contest having gone just 5-for-34 at the dish since. Goldschmidt is only striking out a 17.4 percent clip, so this early season slump is likely just a small hiccup early on rather than a sign of things to come.
Goldschmidt (back) is starting at first base and hitting second Saturday against the Brewers, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
As expected, Goldschmidt is ready to return to the lineup after missing the last couple games. He is hitting .308 with two doubles, seven strikeouts and two walks through six games.
Goldschmidt (back) expects to play in Saturday's game against the Brewers, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Goldschmidt sat out Thursday's game against Milwaukee due to lower-back tightness and was re-evaluated Friday. However, it appears as though he'll be able to return following a one-game absence. In his first six games of the season, Goldschmidt has gone 8-for-26 with two doubles, six runs, two RBI and seven strikeouts.
Goldschmidt (back) will re-evaluated Friday "and in the days to come," Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Goldschmidt was held out of the lineup Thursday after his back locked up on him. He's officially considered day-to-day, and manager Mike Shildt's comments suggest his absence may extend for several games. If that is the case, John Nogowski and Matt Carpenter are candidates to take over duties at first base.
Goldschmidt isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers due to lower-back tightness, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Goldschmidt had started each of the first six games of the season and went 8-for-26 with six runs and two RBI. Matt Carpenter will slide to first base and bat second Thursday while Tommy Edman starts at second base and leads off. It's not yet clear whether Goldschmidt will be forced to miss additional time.
Goldschmidt went 4-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs in Thursday's win over the Reds.
He powered St. Louis with four hits from the two hole (between Tommy Edman and Nolan Arenado) in a vintage performance. It's always nice to see a player locked in early. Goldschmidt will look to get on the board with his first long ball this weekend before the Cardinals leave the friendly confines of Great American Ball Park.
Goldschmidt 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a Grapefruit League tie with the Astros on Wednesday.
The veteran slugger launched his first round tripper of spring off Astros starter Bryan Abreu to give the Cardinals an early 2-0 lead in the first inning. The blast was Goldschmidt's sixth hit of spring and second of the extra-base variety. The 33-year-old is set to likely operate out of the No. 2 or No. 3 hole in the lineup most days during the coming season, with offseason acquisition Nolan Arenado, who's expected to hit directly behind him, offering him an invaluable level of protection that Goldschmidt didn't enjoy in his first two Cardinals campaigns.
Goldschmidt is hitting .200 (2-for-10) with a double and two walks over his first five Grapefruit League games.
The veteran slugger picked up the two-bagger in Monday's tie with the Marlins but has otherwise been very quiet to start spring play. Goldschmidt posted an impressive .304/.417/.466 line across 230 plate appearances last season and could be set for a similarly successful 2021 with Nolan Arenado projected to hit directly behind him in the lineup.
Goldschmidt (elbow) was spotted taking part in fielding drills during the Cardinals' workout Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
As an established veteran, Goldschmidt may be eased into game action during the Grapefruit League slate, but his presence on the field for the start of spring training suggests he's made a full recovery from the offseason procedure he required to remove a bone spur from his right elbow. The 33-year-old doesn't provide much value as a base stealer these days, but he's nonetheless been a rock-solid fantasy option at first base through his first two seasons in St. Louis, and that's unlikely to change in 2021. Expect him to slot in the heart of the order of a Cardinals lineup that could be improved this season after the addition of Nolan Arenado earlier in the winter.
Goldschmidt underwent a procedure to remove a bone spur from his right elbow after the end of the season, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
It's unclear how long the 33-year-old had been battling the issue, but he waited until the Cardinals were eliminated before undergoing surgery. Goldschmidt finished the shortened campaign with a .304/.417/.466 slash line, six homers, 13 doubles, 31 runs and 21 RBI while playing all 58 games. President John Mozeliak didn't offer a specific recovery timeline, but the veteran slugger shouldn't have any issues being ready for the start of spring training in February.
Goldschmidt went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's victory in Game 1 of the Wild Card Round against the Padres.
Goldschmidt kicked off the scoring in the first inning, driving in the first two of the four runs the Cardinals would score in that frame. He now has seven career postseason homers in 18 games, a number he pairs with a .284/.338/.622 slash line.
