3B - STL
Expert NoteView More Notes
On the bright side, Arenado struck out just 10% of the time, a career-best. On the down side, there was everything else. Arenado batted just .253 and put up a 162-game pace of 27 home runs, 78 runs, 88 RBI, and zero steals. Those numbers won't kill your fantasy team, but considering Arenado's worst numbers over the previous five seasons were 37 home runs, 97 runs scored, and 110 RBI, they were a disaster. The good news, at least from the standpoint of projecting Arenado into the future, is that he was dealing with an injured AC joint in his shoulder for most of the season. In other words, fantasy managers can largely ignore Arenado's poor 2020 numbers, and focus instead on how he will perform now that he's been traded to the Cardinals. Although there's likely to be some dip in his numbers, we've seen hitters leave the Rockies and largely retain their value (or, in the case of DJ LeMahieu, increase their value), The best part is you won't have to pay that first-round price anymore, and if his ADP drops after the trade to St. Louis, it should be easy to turn a profit.

Nolan Arenado trade deal to the Cardinals is official
According to Mark Feinsand, the trade between the Rockies and Cardinals is official. The Cardinals officially acquired Nolan Arenado plus cash considerations for Austin Gomber, Elehuris Montero, Tony Locey, Mateo Gil, and Jake Sommers.
In 2020, Nolan Arenado finished with eight home runs, 23 runs, and 26 RBI with a .253 batting average. He dealt with a shoulder injury in 2020 that likely impacted his production. Although it's a home ballpark downgrade in St. Louis, he's a good enough hitter that he should make up for any initial struggles. If his ADP continues to fall, then swoop him up at his current NFBC ADP of 35.30 over the past month.
