Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left hand. OF Alfredo Marte was recalled from Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt is a big loss to fantasy lineups, and his season could be over with less than two months to go. Jordan Pacheco is playing first base Saturday, Aug. 2, but Mark Trumbo could see time there as well. Pacheco and Marte are NL-only adds.

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt was given the day off to rest Friday, Aug. 1, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was just his second day of rest this season. He has logged 965 2/3 innings played this season, and that's third-most in the majors. C/1B Jordan Pacheco started in his absence.
Fantasy Tip: It's good news that Goldschmidt has no injury and is just getting a breather. The right-handed slugger should be back in the lineup Saturday, and he'll definitely be in there Sunday. In the series finale he faces Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano, a left-handed starter. Goldy is hitting a robust .384 (28-for-73) with six doubles, three homers, 10 RBI and a 1.115 OPS against southpaws this season. Daily fantasy owners need to remember that when setting their lineups.

The Colorado Rockies placed OF Carlos Gonzalez (finger) on the disabled list Wednesday, June 4. C Mike McKenry is being called up and C Jordan Pacheco was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: CarGo's trip to the DL ensures that Corey Dickerson will continue to see regular playing time. He remains useful in deep mixed leagues. We've known Gonzalez to be a slow healer in his career, so expect him to be out longer than the designated 15 days.

The Colorado Rockies have placed C Wilin Rosario (illness) on the 15-day disabled list because of a viral infection.
Fantasy Tip: C/INF Jordan Pacheco, who provides little power but hits for a decent average, will likely get the bulk of the playing time behind the plate in Rosario's absence. He warrants a look in NL-only leagues. Pacheco will be backed up by C Mike McKenry, who is unlikely to get enough playing time to carry much fantasy value.

Colorado Rockies C Jordan Pacheco (shoulder) was the designated hitter Tuesday, March 11, his first extended action this spring after dealing with a strained left shoulder. The next test for Pacheco will be playing defense, but he said he is now pain-free. "It's just being strong. My little rotator cuff exercises helped out a bunch. Going from not holding a glove up to doing it every day is a little wearing on the body. I've just got to be smart and keep up my exercises. It should be good," Pacheco said.
