Arizona Diamondbacks’ Paul Goldschmidt Takes Batting Practice


The Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman, Paul Goldschmidt, took batting practices yesterday with his teammates since fracturing his hand in August.

Paul Goldschmidt hit off a tee this past week and then he took flips in the cage on Friday. Although he has getting back into regular team activities, he will not take the field in the Arizona Diamondbacks finale against the Cardinals.

Paul Goldschmidt has not encountered any setbacks since breaking his hand, and it appears he is pretty close to, if not at, 100 percent again. Expect Goldschmidt to b good to go by the time spring training rolls around.

“It felt fine,” Goldschmidt said. “I’m not too worried about the swing, mechanically or anything like that. I mean you don’t want to hit bad, but that’s not the focus. There was no pain and it felt good.”

“It would be better than not doing it,” Paul Goldschmidt said of whether taking batting practice was a big deal. “But I would be more excited if we had a month left in the season and I knew a week from now, I was going to hopefully be back in games or whatever the timeframe would be.
