3B,DH - STL
Nolan Arenado has opted into the rest of his five-year contract with the Cardinals, keeping him locked into St. Louis until 2027.
Arenado returning with the Cards on this current contract was relatively expected, as the two sides have had a great relationship since he was traded from the Rockies. The third baseman is coming off a great season where he hit .293 with 30 home runs and 103 RBIs in 148 games played while also playing his signature elite defense. The 31-year-old will be a force in the middle of the St. Louis lineup for years to come.
Nolan Arenado (thigh) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday. This is a precautionary move and he would play "without hesitation" if the game had postseason significance.
Arenado missed Monday's game as well due to this thigh issue, but it seems to be a minor injury. The Cardinals are playing it safe with their postseason standing locked up. It's possible he doesn't play Wednesday as well. Juan Yepez will take over at 3B Tuesday.

The 31-year-old slugger continues to be a model for consistent production at the plate for fantasy managers, posting a .901 OPS with 71 runs scored, 30 home runs, and 100 runs batted in through 142 games this season.
