Nolan Arenado finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's loss against the Cubs.
Arenado launched a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning in his first at-bat after a five-game suspension. The Rockies had a brief 3-2 lead after the first frame but it was all downhill after that. Still, Arenado didn't appear rusty after the layoff and the homer was a great bonus for fantasy owners. He'll face RHP Yu Darvish in Saturday's contest. Apr 21 - 12:55 AM

Nolan Arenado is back in the Rockies' lineup Friday after serving his five-game suspension.

Arenado got five games after charging the mound when a Luis Perdomo pitch sailed behind him last Wednesday. He's at third base and batting cleanup against Kyle Hendricks and the Cubs.
Apr 20 - 5:36 PM

Nolan Arenado was removed from the Rockies' starting lineup on Saturday and will begin serving his suspension.

Arenado has dropped his appeal and will serve the full five-game ban. It isn't the worst idea to take a day off while Max Scherzer is on the hill for the opposition. Ryan McMahon will cover third base for the Rockies on Saturday and should see increased action there while Arenado is on the shelf.
Apr 14 - 12:01 PM

Nolan Arenado has been suspended five games by Major League Baseball for his involvement in Wednesday's brawl between the Rockies and Padres.

Arenado charged the mound after Luis Perdomo threw a pitch behind him and threw multiple punches. He is appealing the suspension and will be in Friday's lineup. Perdomo also got a five-game ban, while Gerardo Parro received a four-game suspension and Buddy Baumann got one game.
Apr 13 - 5:08 PM

Nolan Arenado was ejected for charging the mound Wednesday in the Rockies’ win over the Padres.

Manuel Margot landed on the DL after taking a pitch off his ribs on Tuesday and one could guess that payback was probably coming for the Rockies on Wednesday. Luis Perdomo threw a pitch behind Arenado to begin the third inning, which the All-Star third baseman obviously didn’t appreciate. Arenado charged the mound and threw several punches at Perdomo, though none of them landed. Perdomo threw his glove at Arenado and also missed. Ian Desmond pinch-hit for Arenado, who went 0-for-1 with a strikeout before exiting, with Pat Valaika later taking over at third base. Arenado can expect a suspension for his role in Wednesday’s kerfuffle, though he’ll probably appeal it, which could knock off a game or two.

Nolan Arenado (knee) finished Tuesday's game against the Padres with a single and a triple across four at-bats.

Arenado has been dealing with some soreness in his left knee, but if there is a problem it certainly didn't look like it when he was legging out a triple on a ball he laced into the right-field corner late in the home loss. He said over the weekend that he isn't worried about the soreness, so his fantasy owners also should not be concerned.
Apr 11 - 12:08 AM

Nolan Arenado confirmed after Friday's game that he's not worried at all about the soreness in his left knee.

Arenado first experienced the soreness during the Opening series of the regular season. He told reporters on Friday, "I've already seen doctors... It's just a little soreness. It's going to go away here soon. It's nothing to worry about." He even showed off his wheels during Friday's game, swiping his first base of the season, so there appears to be no reason for concern at the moment.
Apr 6 - 10:10 PM

Nolan Arenado finished 1-for-2 with a double, a run scored, an RBI and two walks in Wednesday's 5-2 victory in San Diego.

Arenado has racked up an extra-base hit in four of his six outings, collecting three doubles, a homer and five RBI through his first six games. No slow start here for Arenado, who posted career bests across the board in 2017. It seems like he has been around forever, so it's hard to believe he is just 26 and moving into the prime of his career. That's good news for his fantasy owners, bad news for National League opposing pitchers.
Apr 5 - 2:46 AM

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Arenado tightened the purse strings on the scoreboard with his solo home run off Patrick Corbin to lead off the sixth inning. That shot drew the Rockies to within 3-2, but they were unable to make enough offensive hay down the stretch -- nor hold the D-Backs' offense down -- to come away with a win. The All-Star third baseman's numbers year-in and year-out more than speak for themselves. To whit, Arenado slashed .309/.373/.586 with 37 homers, 43 doubles and 130 RBI in 159 games last season. All three numbers on that batting line were career bests.
Mar 30 - 1:59 AM

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in Friday’s win over the Angels.

Arenado helped chase Shohei Ohtani from the game with his blast in the second inning. The 26-year-old is up to three homers on the spring along with a .985 OPS. With his consistent monster production and Coors Field as the backdrop, there’s no doubt he’ll be selected within the top-five picks in most standard mixed fantasy leagues this month.
Mar 16 - 8:34 PM

Nolan Arenado went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Reds.

Arenado struck for a solo home run with two outs in the third inning, his first dinger of spring training. Plenty more fireworks figure to be coming off his bat once the season revs up. The All-Star third baseman will be trying for his third 40-homer season in the last four campaigns. He fell just short of that mark in 2017, when he unloaded for 37 long balls. Arenado has driven in at least 130 runs in each of the last three seasons.
Feb 24 - 6:08 PM

Rockies General Manager told reporters on Friday that the Rockies plan to talk with Nolan Arenado about a contract extension.

There's no timetable as to when the contract extension talks will begin, but with Arenado set to become a free agent after the 2019 season, you would imagine that they would start sooner than later. Not only is the 26-year-old third baseman one of the best offensive talents in baseball, he's also arguably the best defender at the hot corner in the National League, if not all of baseball. If he were to hit the market, it wouldn't be hyperbole to assume he'd become one of the highest paid hitters in the league.

Nolan Arenado was crowned as the Platinum Glove Award winner for the National League.

He wins the prize as the best of the National League Gold Glove Award recipients. This is his first Platinum Glove. The third baseman won his fifth Gold Glove this year. Arenado is a rare player combining elite offensive and defensive talents. He hit .309/.373/.586 with 37 home runs and 130 RBI this year.

Nolan Arenado was named the Gold Glove Award winner at third base in the National League.

Arenado now has five Gold Glove Awards in five major league seasons and he should get another helping of MVP votes this year, though he was not named one of the three finalists. The full list of 2017 Gold Glove winners in the National League: Paul Goldschmidt 1B, DJ LeMahieu 2B, Brandon Crawford SS, Nolan Arenado 3B, Marcell Ozuna LF, Ender Inciarte CF, Jason Heyward RF, Tucker Barnhart C, Zack Greinke P.

Nolan Arenado went 1-for-5 with a homer in the Rockies 11-8 loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday in the NL Wild Card Game.

The Rockies top hitters -- Charlie Blackmon, DJ Lemahieu and Arenado -- combined to go 1-for-14 against the Arizona pitching staff on Wednesday. At least Arenado's hit was a big one; a blast off of Archie Bradley in the eighth inning that brought Colorado to within two runs at 8-6 in the eighth inning. The other-worldly third baseman will be among the top vote-getters in the MVP race this year, but his season ends now.
