3B - COL - IL10
The Colorado Rockies placed Nolan Arenado on the 10-day injured list with left AC join inflammation and a left shoulder bone bruise.
Basically, Arenado is done for the season with a week remaining. He's been battling the shoulder issue for a while now and there's no need to push it with the Rockies out of contention. He never got fully right this summer, batting .253/.303/.434 with eight homers in 48 games. There is a real chance he has played his last game with the Rockies, which would of course be a hit to his fantasy value next year. Expect to hear his name in trade rumors this offseason.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado is undergoing tests on his sore left shoulder and could be shut down for the rest of the season, according to Rockies Beat writer Patrick Saunders.
Through 48 games this season, Arenado is batting .253 with 23 runs scored, eight home runs, 26 RBI, and no stolen bases. Fantasy owners in weekly leagues should monitor his status on Monday but prepare to go in another direction for their lineups.
Nolan Arenado went 0-for-4 as the Rockies lost to the Dodgers 9-3 on Thursday.
The 29-year-old just hasn't been his usual self this year. Of course, maybe he would wind up turning it around if it wasn't a shortened season. Still, Arenado is batting .256 with a .751 OPS as the season nears its final week. His first-round track record in fantasy baseball will come to an end in 2021.

Arenado sat out Sunday's game with AC join discomfort and the team was off on Monday. He's playing third base and batting fourth opposite Oakland southpaw Sean Manaea.
Nolan Arenado was absent from Sunday's lineup due to an AC joint issue in his left shoulder.
Rockies manager Bud Black says the issue has been bothering Arenado for a couple of days. The team is hoping he avoids the injured list but that doesn't sound like a guarantee. Colorado doesn't play on Monday, which means fantasy owners with weekly lineups due today are going to have a tough decision to make.
