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. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 02:54:00 PM

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

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.

Nolan Arenado left Sunday's game against the Padres with a bruise on the palm of his right hand.

Arenado injured his hand on a swing in the third inning and eventually left the game in the sixth. "I took a funky swing. I don’t know if I spun my hand, but it got real swollen," said Arenado. "It didn’t feel bad, but it didn’t feel great. They decided to take me out. I tried to stay in." The Rockies are hopeful that Arenado will be able to play Monday against the Marlins.
