Arenado went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's win over the Reds.

After a monster day on Sunday, Arenado followed it up with another one on Memorial Day. Over the last two games, Arenado is 7-for-9 with two home runs, a triple, and seven RBI. He's now batting .287 with nine home runs and 28 RBI.

Arenado had a huge day at the play on Sunday, finishing 4-for-5 with a triple, a home run, four RBI and three runs scored against the Giants.

The 24-year-old had been slumping at the plate recently and had seen his average fall to .258 entering Sunday's game, so the outburst was a positive sign. Arenado now has eight home runs and 25 RBI on the season and will look to move past his recent slump on the back of this performance.

Arenado is out of the lineup Thursday.

He has one hit in his last four games and just two extra-base hits in his last nine games. Arenado is still an elite third baseman for fantasy purposes, but his numbers are starting to regress to his true talent level. Daniel Descalso gets the start at third base Thursday.

Arenado went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in the 7-1 win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

The young third basemen continues to shine for the Rockies and he connected with his seventh homer of the season Saturday. He has eight games at Coors Field next week, so he should have another productive week.

Arenado has failed to score a run or record an RBI in his last six games.

With the Rockies' mired in an 11-game losing streak prior to Thursday's win over the Dodgers, Arenado predictably hasn't seen many run-scoring opportunities while the lineup has collectively slumped. It's probably just a minor drought in a long season for Arenado, whose .292 average, six homers, and 19 RBI up to this point have still made him a top-10 third baseman in most formats. Both he and the rest of the team should heat up next week, when the Rockies return to Coors Field to open an eight-game homestand against the sub-.500 Phillies and Giants.

Arenado went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI against the Padres on Sunday.

With Troy Tulowitzki out of the lineup, Arenado stepped in to the third spot in the order and played the part, hitting his fifth and sixth home runs of the year. The 24-year-old now owns a .314 average and .964 OPS on the season, and has emerged as one of the top all-around third basemen in all of baseball.

Arenado (wrist) went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Manager Walt Weiss held Arenado for the first two games of the series after the third baseman experienced wrist soreness while warming up Monday, but it's believed the benching was mainly precautionary. Arenado certainly didn't seem to have any limitations in his return Wednesday, as he roped a double to deep right center off James Shields in his first at-bat and turned in two highlight-worthy defensive plays later in the game. Continue to keep him active and reap the benefits.

Arenado (wrist) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old will return Wednesday, as expected, after missing two games with a sore left wrist. Arenado will look to extend his hitting streak to six games against right-hander James Shields. It's a minuscule sample, but Arenado is 4-for-5 with a homer in his career against Shields.

Arenado (wrist) is expected back in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

A bout of wrist soreness will keep Arenado out of the lineup Tuesday for a second straight day, but he said he could pinch-hit if needed. The 24-year-old seems confident he'll be cleared to return to third base for the third game of the series against San Diego, but owners will probably want to check back Wednesday to confirm his status.

Arenado (wrist) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

A scratch from Monday's lineup due to a sore wrist, Arenado said he thought he'd be fine to play Tuesday. It seems manager Walt Weiss is just taking the necessary precautions with his star third baseman, but Arenado should be viewed as day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's game. Rafael Ynoa is starting at third base and batting ninth.
