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

By on 8/27/2014 11:15:00 AM

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 need surgery.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on August 3 that Goldschmidt was out for the remainder of the season with a fractured left hand. The team initially thought that he would return for the season's final two to four weeks, but manager Kirk Gibson said he would need eight weeks to recover.

Jack Magruder, Diamondbacks beat writer, tweeted the following update on Goldschmidt.
Goldschmidt, in his fourth Major League season, is batting .300 with 19 home runs and 69 RBI this season. He's coming off a season in which he batted .302 with a career high 36 home runs and 125 RBI. In 462 career games, Goldschmidt is a .292 hitter with 83 home runs and 302 RBI.
