With 13 steals thus far, Goldschmidt should challenge his career mark of 18 set in 2012. The 27-year-old first baseman is the top combination of power and speed in baseball right now and has swiped three bags, to go along with one home run, in the last week.

Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with his 20th home run, a walk, two RBI and runs Wednesday against Colorado.

Goldschmidt reached 20 home runs in the first half for the second time in his career. With his ability to hit for power and average, he is in rare company in 2015 - only Goldschmidt and Bryce Harper have more than 20 home runs and better than a .300 average. That said, his .393 BABIP is a bit high compared to his career rates, so expect his batting average to come down bit as fewer hits fall in over the coming weeks.
