Player Notes
Paul Goldschmidt traveled back to Phoenix on Wednesday for the birth of his first child.

Advice: Goldschmidt is expected to return to the club for their game Saturday in Chicago. Yasmany Tomas is likely to fill in for Goldschmidt at first base in the MVP candidate's absence.

Paul Goldschmidt is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

Advice: There were no street clothes in his locker at Coors Field, which is a pretty good indication that the MVP candidate has been excused from the team and flown back to Arizona for the birth of his first child. Arizona has a scheduled team off day Thursday.

Paul Goldschmidt hit his 27th home run of the season in Tuesday's nightcap against the Rockies.

Advice: Goldschmidt took Rockies starter Kyle Kendrick deep in the first inning for a solo shot. The dinger was his only hit in five at-bats. Goldschmidt has struggled, relatively, in recent weeks, but the first baseman is still hitting a magnificent .322/.437/.563 with 97 RBI, 85 runs scored and 21 stolen bases overall.

Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer to help the Diamondbacks beat the A's 6-4 on Friday.

Advice: Goldschmidt's homer came off switch-pitcher Pat Venditte in the seventh inning. He has four homers in his last seven games after going 25 days without one.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Advice: Goldschmidt jumped the Diamondbacks out to a 1-0 lead with a solo home run off John Lackey in the first inning, but the team wouldn't score again in the game. The bomb was Goldy's 25th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 94. Pair those counting stats with a .331/.446/.571 triple-slash and you have yourself a legitimate MVP candidate. Oh, and he's also stolen a career-high 20 bases. Not too shabby.
