Another indicator is when he does make contact, Goldschmidt’s average Authentic Brian Allen Jersey exit velocity is down from 91.4 mph in 2017 to 88.8 mph. Maybe he’s hurt. Maybe all it will take is a mechanical fix he has yet to figure out. While he probably won’t continue to be this bad, Diamondbacks fans should be worried; there are some bad warning signs here.

Home run of the day: Juan Soto, the Nationals 19-year-old just up from Double-A, did this:

He’s the first teenager to homer since some guy named Harper, and only six players since 1965 have homered at a younger age: Cesar Cedeno, Robin Yount, Ken Griffey Jr., Andruw Jones, Adrian Beltre and Jurickson Profar.
