Paul Goldschmidt already has a reputation as an upstanding guy, but this is sure to add to it. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks’ first baseman gave up his spacious locker to Rickie Weeks because Weeks has more big league experience.

Goldschmidt, of course, didn’t have to do that. He’s unquestionably the best position player on the Diamondbacks’ roster and the face of the team. He has twice finished as a runner-up in National League MVP balloting. Weeks, on the other hand, has spent most of the past four years scuffling due to injuries and declining performance. No one would have batted an eye even if Goldschmidt had been pressured to give up the locker and refused.

Good guy, that Paul Goldschmidt.
