Arenado, who began the season on fire, has just 10 hits in his last 51 at-bats with one home run during that stretch. His average has fallen from .314 to .270 while he has fanned 12 times in the last 10 games.
Arenado is 1 for 15 in his last four games, dropping his season line to .265/.308/.500.
The home run was his only hit in four at-bats on Saturday as his batting average dropped to .289 on the season. He has hit safely in four straight games, however.
In seven games this month, Arenado is hitting .296/.296/.704 and has registered three home runs - as many as he hit during the first month of the season. Over the last seven days, however, Arenado's numbers have tailed off a bit, as he is just 3-for-15, as the entire Rockies team has stumbled to a nine-game losing streak.
Arenado remains a big run producer for the Rockies, with a .364 batting average and six RBIs with two outs and a runner in scoring position.
There's no question that
And, although he just turned 24 years old a couple of weeks ago, his name is also being mentioned along the likes of Todd Helton and Troy Tulowitzki in regards to Rockies' cornerstones. But to his credit, Arenado wants to make his own name for the Colorado franchise.
"I'm a huge fan of Tulo. I would love to be like Tulo, or Todd (Helton)," Arenado said Monday, per the Denver Post. "I would love to play like them. But those are their roads. I want to build my own road."
Arenado's stellar defense is even getting the respect from the competition in his own divsion.
"His defense is maybe the best in the league," Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt said. "It stinks when you're hitting and you know if you hit anything even close to him, he's going to rob you of a hit. He's a stud. He's an unbelievable player. Has some power, good strike zone judgment. He's aggressive but can be patient too. He really does everything really well."
Arenado is seeing the ball well over his last 10 games, as he enters play Tuesday batting .317 with three home runs and seven RBI in that stretch.
