Nolan Arenado is not in Thursday's lineup against the Braves.
It sounds like a routine day off for the All-Star third baseman. Cristhian Adames will start at third base and bat eighth against Mike Foltynewicz.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Arenado's absence is bad news for the DFS community, although it brightens the outlook for a few of the Rockies bats who find themselves in favorable lineup spots. Daniel Descalso will slide up to the fifth spot in the order, and while he's been thought of as a light-hitting infielder throughout his career, he's enjoying a .394 wOBA at home against RHP this season. Trevor Story slots into the clean-up spot behind Blackmon, LeMahieu and Gonzalez, giving him some added RBI opportunities. Jul 21 - 5:05 PM

Arenado got the Rockies on the board with an RBI single as part of a three-run rally in the fourth inning, then tagged Randall Delgado for a two-run bomb in the seventh inning to put the game on ice. He's squarely in the conversation for early-season MVP honors in the National League, slashing .305/.371/.695 with 11 homers and 25 RBI while playing a Gold Glove caliber third base.
May 1 - 8:13 PM

Apr 27 - 12:30 AM

Nolan Arenado went deep on Friday against the Dodgers, collecting his seventh homer of the year and finishing the game 2-for-3 with a walk.

Arenado led off the fourth inning with a 435-foot homer, and he now only trails Bryce Harper and teammate Trevor Story for the major-league lead. He's hitting .286/.348/.667 with a very low .212, which is largely due to the fact that most of his balls-in-play have been homers. He only has eight non extra-base hits in 69 PA. He remains one of the premier power bats in the league.
