According to the heavily connected Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Paul Goldschmidt will be called up from Double-A Mobile to join the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Goldschmidt will likely meet up with the team tomorrow, as the D-backs take on the Giants in San Francisco in a series that is vital to Arizona's chances for the postseason in 2011.

We've been talking about a Goldschmidt promotion for months now, and it is good to see the young slugger get the call-up during a significant stretch of games for the franchise.

Only 23 years old, Goldschmidt provides youthful exuberance to an experienced team and will have to learn quickly in order to keep his job. Kevin Towers wouldn't call up Goldschmidt if he wasn't going to play every day -- expect Xavier Nady to get two starts a week and be a solid mentor for the rookie out of Texas State.
