Paul Goldschmidt is incredible.
Over his first 48 games and 203 plate appearances this season, Goldschmidt was slashing just .198/.320/.355. But, into early June, he was already regressing to the mean — in the positive direction that we all expected.
On Friday, Goldschmidt’s average jumped to .300 for the first time this season. In the 91 games since he bottomed out at the .198/.320/.355 line, Goldschmidt has hit .350/.443/.661 (1.104 OPS) with 28 home runs and 69 RBIs over 414 plate appearances. For the season, he’s now slashing .300/.403/.561 with 33 homers and 82 RBIs, leading the NL in OPS with his .963 mark. Not bad for a guy who played a quarter of his season hitting below .200.
