Arenado is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Arenado went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's marathon 17-9 loss, and he'll take the day off for the series finale. Ryan McMahon will start at the hot corner in his place while Garrett Hampson takes over at the keystone.
Arenado went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 17-9 loss to the Reds. Arenado's first-inning two-run shot off Tanner Roark ended an eight-game homer drought, during which the All-Star went 6-for-29. The recent offensive lull is probably nothing for fantasy managers to be concerned about, especially with five more games on tap during the Rockies' homestand to open the second half.
Arenado went 4-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 13-9 win over the Dodgers. Arenado made himself the centerpiece of the Rockies' offense Friday, getting them on the board with his homer in the first inning before scoring on an error as part of an eight-run fifth inning. The third baseman finished a triple shy of the cycle, snapping a recent 0-for-12 skid. Arenado has reached 20 homers for the fifth consecutive year and is hitting .321/.384/.584 in the midst of another excellent season.
Arenado is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Arenado's toe is still a little sore, which is one of the reasons why the Rockies wanted to give him a day, Saunders said. Arenado started the last seven games at the hot corner after dealing with a toe bruise and went 9-for-28 with two home runs, seven runs scored, five RBI and five walks. It's only the third time this season the 28-year-old will step out of the lineup. Pat Valaika is starting at third base and batting eighth Sunday.
Arenado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Dodgers. A toe injury didn't cost Arenado any games, and the third baseman proved he's good to go with a fourth-inning blast off Walker Buehler. Arenado has hit .333 with two homers, four RBI and seven runs scored in his last six games. The 28-year-old has 19 homers and 61 RBI in 74 games this season.
