Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt was hit in the left hand on a pitch from Pirates reliever Ernesto Frieri last night and Adam Litchstein of MLB.com reports that X-rays came back inconclusive.

Goldschmidt didn’t start last night’s game, but entered as a defensive replacement in the top of the ninth inning and stayed in to hit for the final half-inning. The injury was added insult for the Diamondbacks, who saw a 4-1 lead turn into a 9-4 loss. Goldschimdt had his hand wrapped in ice after the game and will be re-evaluated today.

“I’ve never had any broken bones or fractures or anything like that,” Goldschmidt said. “It felt OK, but obviously there’s still some pain because it hit it pretty good.

“I don’t know what it would feel like if it was or wasn’t anything wrong with it.”

One of the few bright spots for the Diamondbacks this season, Goldschmidt is batting .300/.396/.542 with 19 home runs, 69 RBI, and nine stolen bases over 109 games.
