Arenado went 1-for-2 with two walks and a solo home run in Friday's win over the Reds. The 27-year-old took Sal Romano deep to center field for his first home run in nearly three weeks. While Arenado is well off his normal power pace, he's walking and making hard contact at the highest rates of his career. Keep in mind that he's played just 19 games at home to this point (27 on the road).
Arenado went 3-for-5 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base in the Rockies' 9-5 loss to the Giants on Sunday. Arenado hasn't hit a homer since May 5 -- an uncharacteristically long drought for his standards -- but he's managed to continue to contribute in other areas, as this three-hit performance brought his slash line up to a brilliant .331/.418/.567 through 157 at-bats. He also threw in his second stolen base of the season, although that shouldn't be considered likely to be a recurring trend, as he's swiped just 13 bags for his career. Fantasy owners shouldn't worry about the recent mini-lull in homers for Arenado, as more hits are bound to start leaving the yard for the 27-year-old dynamo as long as he continues to swing the bat like this.
Arenado went 3-for-6 with two home runs and five RBI in Wednesday's win over the Cubs. About the only blemishes for Arenado in the opening month were the suspension and the lack of home runs, as he had just four entering May after averaging 40 long balls a year over the last three seasons. He's made up for that since the calendar flipped to May, as he's now 4-for-10 with three homers and six RBI over the last two days. The 27-year-old now sports a terrific .320/.412/.619 slash line on the year.
Arenado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Cubs. Arenado hit the last of three home runs off Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks, getting just enough of a hanging curveball to send it over the fence. It was his fifth home run of the year and first since April 23. He's been in a slump recently, recording just four hits in 23 at-bats, yet he still has a .957 OPS through 91 at-bats on the season.
Arenado went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Sunday against the Cubs. Arenado has shown no ill effects after his five-game absence due to suspension as he blasted his second home run in three games since returning to the lineup. It's been business as usual for him to begin the season, as he's currently hitting .344/427/.578.
