Arenado is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Arenado hasn't had a day off since May 21, so this was long overdue for the 24-year-old, who recently had a 17-game hit streak snapped. Daniel Descalso will relieve him at third base for the afternoon contest.

Arenado went 1-for-4 with a double in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Arenado saw his 17-game hit streak come to an end in the Rockies' previous game, but it didn't take him long to reemerge as an extra-base machine. In addition to his 18 two-baggers on the season, Arenado has hit 24 homers and has tripled three times.

Arenado's ridiculous week continued Sunday, as he finished 2-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored against the Giants.

He has now launched eight home runs in his last seven games, totaling 15 RBI and 11 runs scored to boot. The 24-year-old has a 15-game hitting streak as well, and has emerged as one of the top third baseman both in fantasy terms and in real life, as he provides top-notch defense at the hot corner in addition to his stellar offensive production.

Arenado went deep twice, walked once, and drove in four runs in Friday's 8-6 triumph over the Giants.

The Rockies left the cushy confines of Coors Field to begin a 10-game road trip, but it doesn't look like that's going to stop the dialed-in Arenado from absolutely crushing the ball. He's homered an impressive six times in his last five games, giving him 22 homers on the season, which places him fifth in baseball and second only to the Reds' Todd Frazier among third basemen. Arenado is no longer a star in the making -- he's officially arrived.

Arenado connected on his 20th homer of the season and came around to score another run following a walk in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Arenado has now ripped off four homers and plated seven runs in his last four games as he continues to build off of last season's semi-breakout. He's already surpassed his home-run total of 18 from 2014, and even with some expected second-half regression in the power department, Arenado could still make a push for 35 or 40 taters.

Arenado hit two home runs and knocked in four runs in Tuesday's rout of the Diamondbacks.

With the second shot, his 19th of the season Arenado passed his home run total from 2014. It took just over half as many games and at-bats to get there, showing the power growth Arenado is exhibiting in his third year as a major leaguer. He trails just Todd Frazier's 23 home runs at the third base position.

Arenado extended his hitting streak to nine games with a solo home run and a single in Sunday's 10-4 drubbing of the Brewers.

During the streak, Arenado has recorded exactly two hits on four occasions while homering twice and driving in seven runs. If his 2014 mini-breakout wasn't enough to convince fantasy players that Arenado has arrived a top-tier third baseman, the 24-year-old has probably quieted any remaining skeptics at this point. In standard 5x5 leagues, only Todd Frazier, Josh Donaldson, and Manny Machado have returned more value than Arenado from the third-base spot.

Arenado went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and 2 RBIs against Milwaukee on Friday.

The 24-year-old is posting similar stats to his 2014 campaign, with a .313 OBP and a .558 slugging percentage. Colorado's third baseman continues to produce, both at Coors Field and on the road.

Arenado blasted a two-run home run in the first inning of Sunday's victory over the Marlins.

His 16th home run of the season proved to be the difference in the game as the Rockies cruised to a 4-1 win. Areando has slumped a bit over the past month, but has now homered three times in his past seven games while bumping his season line to .270/.303/.540 with 16 home runs, 49 RBI and 32 runs scored.

Arenado hit his 15th home run as part of a 2-for-4 effort in Tuesday's win over St. Louis.

Arenado has homered in back-to-back games and has four in his past 11. He's up to a .280/.314/.569 batting line and could benefit from the recent hot streaks of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez.
