Description: Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has missed the past two spring training games due to "leg stiffness," according to beat writer Nick Piecoro.
Insight: We're talking about a guy who will cost you a top-five pick on draft day after batting .302 last season with 36 HR, 126 RBI and 15 steals., so we would like him to start the season healthy. It doesn't appear to be serious, but it's worth watching.

Insight: Goldschmidt is a rising fantasy star, batting .302 with 20 HR and 69 RBI and a .933 OPS, despite just three hits in his last 19 at-bats. You shouldn't expect much from him in the way of production while Harvey is on the mound. Of course, when Harvey pitches, you can probably say that about most hitters. Latest update, Goldschmidt is not in the starting lineup.
