Nolan Arenado 3B COL 2 Days

Arenado collected four hits and two RBI in eight at-bats and also drew two walks between Games 1 and 2 of Sunday's doubleheader with the Reds.

Arenado has shown some meager growth in his walk rate this season, but he'll still need to improve further upon his current 5.7 percent mark to take another leap as a hitter. Though injuries have limited him to 88 games so far, Arenado's development has been encouraging in his sophomore season. He's batting .293 with 12 homers, 48 RBI and 49 runs scored.

Arenado went 2-for-4 with one run scored and one RBI as he hit his 12th homer of the season off Reds' starter Johnny Cueto on Friday.

The home run is a rarity off a starter like Cueto, but Arenado managed to clear the fence (372 feet). Arenado (.288/.326/.488) is a meat-and-potatoes type hitter and is adapting well to hitting clean-up for the Rockies.

Arenado went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The home run was Arenado's 11th of the season, surpassing last season's total in 53 fewer games. Arenado scuffled at the plate initially when he came off the DL in early July, but his power numbers have started to trend upward over the last two weeks.

Arenado (thigh) went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks, and a pair of RBI and runs scored in Wednesday's demolition of the Cubs.

Arenado's availability was in question heading into the game after he fouled a ball off his thigh a day earlier, but his strong performance at the plate suggests the third baseman is feeling just fine. After a mostly uninspiring month of July, Arenado is beginning to heat up at the plate, smacking four homers and driving in 12 runs over his last 14 games.

Arenado (thigh) is in the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

As expected, Arenado will be fine to play Wednesday despite taking a ball off his thigh Tuesday night. His removal from the game was deemed precautionary and he later said that he just suffered a bruise.

Nolan Arenado 3B COL 14 Days

Arenado fouled a ball off his thigh in Tuesday's game, and it was the reason for his early departure, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

The move was precautionary on the Rockies' part, as Arenado said he felt fine and that it was just a bruise. With that news, he will likely return to the lineup either Wednesday or in one of the next few days.

Arenado may have tweaked something late in Tuesday's game, as he was seen crouching at first base after a single, and was later replaced at third base, the Denver Post's Nick Groke reports.

He fouled a pitch off his right thigh in his at-bat prior to being replaced on defense by Charlie Culberson, so that could have been the cause of the ailment, if there is one at all. The game went deep into extra innings, so Arenado could have just been removed as a precaution. Monitor his status leading into Wednesday's game.

Nolan Arenado had an RBI double and two runs scored in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Arenado's 21st double of the year in the seventh inning pushed the Rockies' lead to 5-2, and he came around to score the team's sixth and final run later in the inning. He's got a hit in five straight games, with four RBI and five runs scored in that span.

Nolan Arenado 3B COL 28 Days

Nolan Arenado hit a two-run home run, his first homer since breaking his left middle finger on May 23, in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

Since his return to the lineup on July 3, Arenado had gone 14 games without a homer before Tuesday's blast in the third inning. The homer, his seventh overall, was his only hit in four at-bats. The finger injury derailed what appeared to be the makings of a breakout offensive year for the 23-year-old, but Arenado is still hitting .282/.305/.456 with plenty of time to add to those numbers over the next two months.
