PAUL GOLDSCHMIDT RUMORS

Padres Seth Smith: The (Very) Poor Man’s Paul Goldschmidt

The San Diego Padres acquired Seth Smith in a trade last winter.  It wasn’t a move that generated many headlines as Smith had just finished a season in which he hit .250 with just 8 home runs to go with well below average baserunning and poor defense.  Luke Gregerson, the player that the Padres shipped to Oakland for Smith, is a good reliever, a solid 8th inning guy who has filled...

Diamondbacks Injury Update: Paul Goldschmidt will not need surgery on hand

The Arizona Diamondbacks have struggled all season and sit nineteen and a half games out in the National League West with a record of 55-77. Injuries have not helped the cause, as nine players are currently on the DL, with four on the 60-day DL. One major injury was that to first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who fractured his left hand on August 1. The good news is that he will not...

Ranking the 50-win teams

Credit: Darryl Webb/AP   9. Arizona Diamondbacks (55-76): The loss of Paul Goldschmidt has left the Diamondbacks without any significant contributor. The best has probably been surprisingly the acquisition Vidal Nuno who has a 3.54 ERA in nine starts since being acquired from the New York Yankees. The best position player has probably been David Peralta who has hit .287, but nobody...

Arizona Diamondbacks acquire former first round pick

The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired outfielder Brett Jackson from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for minor league pitcher Blake Cooper. Jackson was the Cub’s first round pick in the 2009 draft. Entering the 2012 season he was a top 40 prospect. Injuries have slowed his progression and he hasn’t played a full season since 2011. The University of California Berkeley graduate has shown...

Arizona Diamondbacks: the Towers and Gibson problem

Fans of the Arizona Diamondbacks are having a traumatic 2014. It was just three years ago that their beloved team was in the playoffs and there was optimism about the future. Just three years later all the joy and momentum has come to a screeching halt. Fans think that because they support their team they have to support everything their team does. They fear that if they dismiss...

Diamondbacks Injury Update: Paul Goldschmidt out 4-6 weeks with fractured hand

Goldschmidt's season likely over

PHOENIX -- Just when it seemed the desert could not get any drier ... Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt was diagnosed with a fractured left hand after being hit by a pitch on what was intended to be an off day Friday, the latest blow for a team whose season can be most accurately defined by its wall-to-wall injuries. The D-backs, who entered Saturday night's game with...

D-backs hold breath after Goldschmidt hit by pitch

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks tried to give Paul Goldschmidt a full day off Friday. They would have slept much better if they had. Goldschmidt, who entered in a 9-4 loss to Pittsburgh in a double-switch in the top of the ninth inning, was struck by a pitch in the left hand in the last of the inning. Different hand, but he was struck in the same general area -- on the top of the hand...

WATCH: Paul Goldschmidt crushes another huge home run

Your browser does not support iframes.   Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Paul Goldschmidt crushed another monster home run last night. These majestic bombs are becoming quite routine for the two-time All-Star, who just continues to produce like a machine. The homer marked Goldy’s 18th home run (6th in the N.L.) and 64th and 65th RBIs (tied for 1st in the N.L.) and why he...

WATCH: Paul Goldschmidt hits the scoreboard with a home run

Your browser does not support iframes.   Paul Goldschmidt’s home run hit his own picture on the scoreboard. Let me repeat: Paul Goldschmidt hit a home run off of his own picture on the scoreboard. That is just ridiculous. The two-run blast came off of Goldy’s bat at 108.6 MPH, and was measured at 470 feet, the fourth longest in Diamondbacks history. Something tells me that we’ll...
