Nolan Arenado (wrist) is not in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday night versus the Padres.

The star third baseman was a late scratch Monday with a sore left wrist. Arenado swung a bat on Tuesday afternoon and felt fine, but he said he didn't want to push it. Arenado should available to pinch-hit and will probably return to the hot corner on Wednesday.

Nolan Arenado was scratched from Monday's lineup with a sore left wrist.

It's not clear at this point how Arenado injured the wrist or how serious the setback might be. The Rockies should provide an update on the third baseman shortly. Rafael Ynoa took Arenado's spot at the hot corner.
Apr 20 - 8:38 PM

Nolan Arenado spanked a three-run homer in Wednesday's victory over the Giants.

He finished 1-for-4, with the three-run bomb -- courtesy of a sluggish Tim Lincecum slider -- the difference in a 4-2 win. Arenado and his offensive mates are apparently trying to revive the Blake Street Bomber moniker of Rockies' past. The young third baseman is slashing .324/.395/.735 and the Rockies are off to a 7-2 start, including a stunning 6-0 on the road, fresh off a sweep in San Francisco of the defending champs. Can the Rockies keep it up? Doubtful. Can Arenado? A monster season isn't out of the question.
Apr 16 - 1:14 AM

Nolan Arenado hit a two-run homer in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

Arenado hit the tater off Jason Hammel in the second inning. It was his second home run on the early season and bodes well for the youngster, who finished the game 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. He's off to a 9-for-20 start in 2015. Still just 24 years old, Arenado could be in for a big season. Last year, he hit 18 home runs and collected 61 RBI in just 111 games.

Arenado has sprinted out of the starting blocks, as he's now 5-for-9 (.556) with a home run and five RBI through two games. The third baseman got the scoring started Tuesday, lacing an RBI double off Brewers starter Matt Garza. Big things are expected of Arenado this year, and after two games the soon-to-be 24-year-old has delivered.
Apr 7 - 11:47 PM

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBI, and three runs scored in Monday's Opening Day win over the Brewers.

Arenado had an RBI double in the first, a two-run homer in the third, and later added an RBI single in the fourth. He also drew a walk. The 23-year-old hit .287 with 18 home runs and 61 RBI across 111 games last season and has a chance to emerge as a top fantasy third baseman this season.
Apr 6 - 5:37 PM

Nolan Arenado blasted his fifth Cactus League home run in a losing effort against the Giants on Tuesday.

He got the Rockies on the board in the fifth inning with a three-run shot off Giants starter Tim Lincecum, providing the extent of the Rockies offense on the day. That was his lone hit in five at-bats in the ballgame. The 23-year-old is having a strong spring, hitting .286 (16-for-56) with five homers and 14 RBI.
Mar 31 - 9:52 PM

Nolan Arenado doubled and hit a solo home run in three at-bats Monday against the Brewers.

Arenado took Tyler Thornburg out to left center to put the Rockies on the board in the second inning for his fourth home run of the spring. The 23-year-old third baseman has been terrific this spring, batting .308 (12-for-39) with 11 RBI.

Nolan Arenado hit his second and third spring homers in Thursday's rout of the Royals.

Arenado hit a two-run blast off of Jason Vargas in the first inning. He then capped off a seven-run second inning with a three-run home run off of Vargas. He finished 3-for-4 on the afternoon, pushing his Cactus League average up to .345 (10-for-29). Arenado, 23, was one of the best third basemen in baseball last season despite missing time with a broken finger and pneumonia and should continue to rank among the best at his position in 2015.
Mar 19 - 7:15 PM

Nolan Arenado had a fantastic afternoon against the Cubs on Saturday, going 2-for-2 with a double and a three-run home run.

The homer came in the first inning against Jason Hammel, giving the Rockies a nice early cushion. Arenado broke out last season, batting .287/.328/.500 with 18 home runs and 61 RBI. The 23-year-old should rank among the game's top third basemen once again.
