  • Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado Back From Restricted List

    The St. Louis Cardinals activated first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and third baseman Nolan Arenado from the restricted list on Thursday, and they'll be available to play on Friday in the series opener against the Washington Nationals after they were unavailable to play in the two-game series in Toronto this week against the Blue Jays because of their vaccination status. Goldschmidt has been a National League MVP candidate this year and has homered in four straight games. In three games after the All-Star break, Arenado has gone 5-for-14 (.357) with three doubles and a run scored. Fantasy managers need to get both players back in their starting fantasy lineups on Friday.

  • Paul Goldschmidt Placed On Restricted List

    The St. Louis Cardinals have officially placed first baseman Paul Goldschmidt on the restricted list. He will remain on the restricted list during the team's two-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays this week as he is not vaccinated against COVID-19, making him unable to enter Canada. Albert Pujols is getting the start at first base for Tuesday's game. After the Cardinals' two-game series with the Blue Jays, the team is off on Thursday, then they will travel to Washington for a three-game series against the Nationals. So the next time we'll see Goldschmidt on the field will be when the All-Star is well rested on Friday.

  • Paul Goldschmidt Homers In All-Star Game At-Bat

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt made his one at-bat count in Tuesday's 3-2 All-Star Game loss to the American League, hitting a solo home run. Goldschmidt crushed a first-inning Shane McClanahan fastball into the left-center seats to increase the National League's lead at the time to two. The veteran has had a resurgent first half even by his standards, slashing .330/.414/.590 with 20 HR, 70 RBI, and five stolen bases. He should continue to be a centerpiece in fantasy managers' lineups for the second half of the season.

  • Paul Goldschmidt Out With Back Tightness Tuesday

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt (back) is being held out of Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Brendan Donovan will be covering first base for the contest. Goldschmidt is dealing with lower back tightness. The ailment is what led to him playing designated hitter instead of first base on Monday. According to Cardinals beat writer John Denton, the Cardinals are hopeful that by giving Goldschmidt Tuesday off, he'll be able to return on Wednesday. The 34-year-old has been one of the best hitters in the majors this year. Over 66 games, he's slashed .339/.417/.614 with 16 home runs, 58 RBI and 48 runs.

  • Paul Goldschmidt Resting Sunday

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is receiving a day of rest on Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds. It's only the third time that Goldschmidt has been out of the starting lineup this season. The 34-year-old has been an MVP candidate in the National League through the early going in June, as he's slashing an excellent .327/.411/.577 with a .988 OPS, 12 long balls, 47 RBI, 41 runs scored and even three stolen bases in 255 plate appearances and 58 games. Juan Yepez is playing first base and is hitting sixth against Reds right-hander Graham Ashcraft in Goldy's absence. The rookie Yepez hasn't been as good so far in June, going 5-for-23 (.217) with no homers and three RBI in nine games, but he's not a terrible low-cost DFS option on Sunday.

  • Paul Goldschmidt Reaches Base Three Times On Wednesday

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt helped lead the team to a 5-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday. He went 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored in the game. Goldschmidt was quite possibly the most lethal hitter in the majors throughout the month of May. He slashed .404/.471/.817 last month with 10 home runs, 33 RBI and 20 runs. Thanks to his dominant May, he now leads the majors with a 1.054 OPS and he's hitting .353/.429/.625 on the season.

  • Paul Goldschmidt Slashing .402/.462/.768 In May

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has been fantastic at the plate throughout the month of May. He's currently slashing .402/.462/.768 across the month with six home runs, 12 doubles, 23 RBI and 14 runs. The 34-year-old was a bit sluggish out of the gate this year, posting a .728 OPS in April, but that's a distant memory now that he has a phenomenal .986 OPS over 41 games on the year as a whole.

  • Paul Goldschmidt Has Four Hits With A Homer Tuesday

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt tallied four hits across two games against the New York Mets Tuesday, including a homer and two doubles. He scored one run and drove in three. Goldschmidt now has a ten-game hit streak to his name, with six multi-hit performances in that span. He's slashing .321/.397/.530 with five home runs, 22 runs scored, 23 RBI, and three steals in 151 plate appearances this season. These numbers only represent a slight improvement over Goldschmidt's career marks, and there is no reason to think his production will slow down in the coming months.
