Paul Goldschmidt

Stock Watch: Not

Last 10 Games: 46 PA, .237 AVG, 9 H, 0 HR’s, 4 RBI’s, 13.0 BB%, 30.4 K%, 68 wRC+ 

Paul Goldschmidt has had a histroic season at the plate, one of the best in Diamondbacks history, and he is once again a MVP candidate. Many have even talked about the Triple Crown with him: that is how good his season has been.

Despite this, since the beginning of August, he hasn’t been the same hitter. Entering the Phillies series, Goldy was just 6 for 31 (.194) this month and whats most alarming is the frequency at which he is striking out as of late. He hasn’t been able to work the count and stay patient.

For Goldschmidt, this is considered by far his worst offensive slump of his career. Thankfully the offense hasn’t completly relied on him, and they have been able to win games this month. They can thank Peralta, Jake Lamb, and Wellington Castillo for that.

Goldy did go 3 for 5 with a single, double, and a triple. He was a homer shy of the cycle, and he walked once. Hopefully this is a good sign that he is regainning his form.
