The Cardinals announced that Arenado was removed in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game against Cleveland due to a bruised right forearm, Jim Hayes of Bally Sports Midwest reports. He went 1-for-1 with a walk before exiting the contest.
Preliminary evaluations of Arenado's forearm seemingly didn't reveal anything serious after he was struck by a pitch in the top of the fifth inning. The Cardinals were trailing by five runs at the time Arenado picked up the injury, so the team may just have been taking extra caution by pulling him from the game. Arenado will have Thursday's team off day to heal up before St. Louis hosts the Twins on Friday.
