Paul Goldschmidt (elbow) on first Wednesday for Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals Paul Goldschmidt (elbow) is starting at first base in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Miami Marlins.

What It Means:

Goldschmidt had been limited to DH duties due to some mild right elbow soreness. The 29-year-old's batting average dipped from .290 in 2017 to .260 last season.

Goldschmidt maintained solid power numbers, with 34 home runs and 97 RBI in 682 plate appearances.
