Arenado doubled his hit total for the season after entering the day 3-for-21 in five games. He should be a solid enough CI option in mixed leagues this year, particularly in leagues in which he can be rotated out of the lineup when the Rockies are on the road. Apr 5 - 11:38 PM

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a loss to the Marlins on Thursday.

Arenado had RBI singles in the third and fifth innings. The 22-year-old third baseman hit .267/.301/.405 with 10 home runs and 52 RBI over 133 games as a rookie last year and there's reason to believe he can take a step forward in 2014. Coors Field is a pretty good environment to facilitate a progress from an offensive perspective.

Nolan Arenado went 1-for-2 with a double in the spring finale against the Mariners on Saturday.

X-rays on Nolan Arenado's left hand came back negative.

Arenado was hit by a pitch on Saturday and only came away with the bruise. It's great news for the Rockies, as Arenado is slated to be the team's starting third baseman come Opening Day. They're looking for a big year out of the former top prospect.

Nolan Arenado sustained a bone contusion in his left hand after being hit by a pitch Saturday.

Arenado left the game in the sixth inning after being hit by a Corey Kluber pitch. Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be too serious. He'll have precautionary X-rays taken later Saturday, and he'll likely get Sunday off to heal. Otherwise, there's no reason to think he should miss any notable time as a result of the injury.

The doubles were his first extra-base hits of the spring, though he is now hitting .368 in 19 Cactus League at-bats.

The 22-year-old still has plenty of time to make adjustments at the plate.
Mar 10 - 7:13 PM

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-3 with three singles and an RBI against the Reds Saturday.

Arenado had a decent rookie season, finishing with a .267 average and 10 home runs, and he should take another step forward in 2014. At the very least, the 22-year-old should be a lock for everyday playing time after winning a Gold Glove at third base last year.
Mar 1 - 6:25 PM
