2022 Stats: .236/.323/.309, 0 HR, 4 2B, 5 RBI, 2 SB, 11 SO, 0 WAR
Paul Goldschmidt’s 2022 season has gotten off to a bit of a slow start, but St. Louis fans should expect the slugger to heat up as the season progresses. Notorious for slow starts to seasons, the month of April has been the first baseman’s worst month over his career and heats up big time in the summer months.
Goldschmidt swung a hot bat in Spring Training and is hitting in the two hole in one of the best lineups in baseball. His his incredible command of the strike zone and ability to hit for power while also getting on base at a high clip will be replicated as Goldschmidt gets more reps in this season.
Goldschmidt is too talented of a player to not be an elite bat in this St. Louis lineup, and it is only a matter of time before the slugger gets going again.
