Goldschmidt expected back in lineup Saturday

Goldschmidt expected back in lineup Saturday

PHOENIX -- D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has not played in Cactus League games for the past two days due to stiffness in his legs.

"Just got run-down a little bit," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "Just felt a little stiffness in one of his legs so we just immediately shut him down. He's been working out and he feels good and he'll be in the lineup [Saturday]."

The D-backs have pair of split-squad games Saturday and Goldschmidt is expected to play in Tempe against the Angels.

Goldschmidt is hitting .235 with three RBIs in 17 at-bats this spring.
