3B - STL
Nolan Arenado went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles and a run scored in a loss to the Twins on Saturday.
The 30-year-old superstar is enjoying a fine first season in St. Louis, hitting .267 with 20 HR, 62 RBI, and an .825 OPS. Assuming good health, the perennial All-Star appears a lock for another 30-HR, 100-RBI season.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado (elbow) was removed from Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Guardians with an elbow injury.
Arenado exited during the fifth inning after being struck in the elbow by a pitch. He briefly stayed in the game before leaving with the trainers. The Cardinals star third baseman is considered day-to-day. Edmundo Sosa replaced him in the game and would see an uptick in playing time while Arenado is sidelined.
Nolan Arenado broke out of his recent slump in a big way on Sunday, going 3-for-5 with three runs scored, a triple, a home run, and an RBI in a 10-6 win over the Reds.
Arenado fell a double shy of the cycle as he singled and scored in the first, tripled and scored in the fourth, and then slugged a solo home run in the ninth, his 20th homer of the season. Despite his recent skid, Arenado remains on pace for yet another 30-HR, 100-RBI season while hitting .261 with an .818 OPS on the year. It's a far cry from the gaudy numbers he piled up in Colorado for many years, but the perennial All-Star remains plenty valuable in fantasy leagues nonetheless.
Nolan Arenado went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 3-2 win over the Cubs on Thursday evening.
