TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

 A rough season got even worse for the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday as the club announced All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left hand.

Goldschmidt, who was the National League's starting first baseman in last month's All-Star Game, was hit by a pitch from Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Ernesto Frieri on Friday night.

Goldschmidt is having another terrific season for the D-backs. The 26-year-old slugger is batting .300 with 19 home runs, 69 RBI and a .938 OPS this season. He leads all NL players in doubles and extra-base hits and is tied for the league lead with 75 runs scored.

Arizona re-called Alfredo Marte to take Goldschmidt's place on the 25-man roster.
