Arenado went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in the 5-0 win over the Rockies on Friday.
Arenado doubled off Gomber and scored on a Harrison Bader home run in the second inning in his first game against his former team. The third baseman has 15 hits in his last 11 games and rides a current five-game hitting streak. He is slashing .283/.341/.496 in 138 plate appearances.
Arenado is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Mets, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Arenado sits after starting each of the Cardinals' first 29 games. He's bounced back nicely from a poor 2020 campaign, though leaving Coors Field has taken the expected bite out of his numbers. He's hitting a solid .265/.325/.496 with five homers through his first 29 games in a Cardinals uniform. Matt Carpenter will fill in for him at third base Tuesday.
Arenado went 1-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run in Monday's 6-5 win over the Mets.
The third baseman took Joey Lucchesi deep in the third inning, snapping his 14-game homerless drought. Arenado has been productive to begin his first season with St. Louis, hitting .265 with five home runs and 21 RBI through 29 games.
Arenado went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple, two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's 12-5 win over the Pirates.
The 30-year-old hasn't gone yard since April 17, a stretch of 13 games, but Arenado is still providing some thump with six extra-base hits (five doubles and a triple) over his last five contests. On the season, he's slashing a solid .274/.330/.491 with four homers and 18 RBI through 27 games.
Arenado went 2-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Friday's 7-3 win over the Pirates.
Arenado had gone just 1-for-7 with a pair of strikeouts in the last two games, but he put the Cardinals on the board with RBI doubles in each of his first two at-bats Friday. The 30-year-old is hitting .255 with four home runs, 15 RBI and 10 runs to begin the season.
Arenado went 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Phillies.
Arenado logged a double in each of his first two at-bats but caught a break in the first inning. Brad Miller misjudged a sliding catch in left field and the ball went off his glove and rolled all the way to the wall, giving him his lone RBI of the evening and tying the game up at 1-1. The two extra-base hits helped him snap a minor 0-for-10 drought and raised his slash line to .256/.309/.456 with four home runs, 13 RBI and 10 runs scored through his first 23 games as a Cardinal.
Arenado went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a run in a win over the Reds on Friday.
Arenado's timely third-inning hit plated the Cardinals' fourth run of the day and extended the veteran third baseman's hitting streak to four games. The 30-year-old arguably already looks better early in his Cardinals tenure than during an injury-shortened 2020 in Colorado, as he's posted eight extra-base hits (four doubles, four home runs), 11 RBI and an .801 OPS through his first 81 plate appearances.
Arenado went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the Phillies.
Arenado blasted a two-run shot off JoJo Romero in the third inning, and the star third baseman now has four homers on the season. The nine-year veteran began the season on a nine-game hitting streak and has hit safely in all but two games thus far, so it's clear he has begun his St. Louis tenure sizzling hot.
Arenado went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Nationals.
Arenado continued to enjoy his new home field, smacking his second home run in five games at Busch Stadium. On this occasion, he took Stephen Strasburg yard for a two-run shot and contributed to a 14-run offensive explosion for the Cardinals. Through 47 plate appearances this season, Arenado is hitting .326/.383/.581 with three home runs, seven runs scored and eight RBI across 47 plate appearances.
Arenado went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the 3-1 win over the Brewers on Thursday.
Arenado's home run in the eighth inning off Drew Rasmussen gave the Cardinals the lead. It was fitting that Arenado won the game for the Cardinals in their home opener after they traded for him to be the centerpiece of their offense. The 29-year-old has at least one hit in all seven games this season along with two home runs and five RBI.
Arenado went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's loss to the Reds.
Make it back-to-back multi-hit games for Arenado to kick off his Cardinals career. He got a late-game at-bat against Sal Romano on Saturday and capitalized with his first long ball (and first extra-base hit) with St. Louis. Arenado has been batting third between Paul Goldschmidt and Paul DeJong.
Arenado went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a run in Thursday's season-opening win over the Reds.
He also struck out for two of his three outs on the afternoon, so it wasn't exactly a picture-perfect debut. However, Arenado's impact went beyond just serving in more of a table-setting role Thursday, as his mere presence behind Paul Goldschmidt in the lineup could well have helped his teammate see much better pitches than he would have otherwise. Considering Goldschmidt parlayed that opportunity into a 4-for-5 day, it's evident Arenado's value to his new squad could extend beyond just what he produces in the box score.
Arenado, who hit a solo home run in his only plate appearance during a Grapefruit League tie with the Mets on Monday, finished spring hitting 4-for-8 with two doubles, the homer, a walk and two runs over his final three exhibitions.
Arenado's round tripper ensured the slugger didn't head into his first Cardinals campaign without going deep in spring play, and his overall body of work over the final three contests was encouraging, considering he was hitting just .184 prior to that stretch. Arenado has previously said he ideally needs at least 50 spring at-bats to get his timing down, and he finishes Grapefruit League play having slashed .239/.321/.370 over 53 plate appearances overall.
Arenado is now hitting .308 (7-for-23) across his first 10 Grapefruit League games after going 2-for-3 with an RBI single in a win over the Nationals on Monday.
Arenado is still in search of his first home run as a Cardinal, but his 3-for-6 tally over the last two games seems to hint at him rounding into regular-season form. Arenado previously said he ideally needs about 50 spring at-bats to feel prepared, and with 26 Grapefruit League plate appearances thus far, he's about halfway to that mark. Most important, Ben Fredrickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the veteran slugger appears to be completely past the AC joint issues that plagued him in 2020. "Feels great," Arenado said. "Letting it rip. This whole spring it hasn't bothered me."
Arenado is 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk over his last two Grapefruit League games after going hitless in two at-bats during his Sunday debut.
The prize offseason acquisition got off to an inconspicuous start Sunday against the Nationals , booting a ball at third in addition to coming up empty in his pair of plate appearances. However, Arenado has subsequently broken the ice with hits in back-to-back exhibitions, with Wednesday's knock accounting for his first official RBI in a Cardinals uniform. Arenado previously stated he'd ideally be comfortable with approximately 50 spring training at-bats ahead of the regular season, and he seems to be firmly on track for that level of volume early.
Arenado will make his Grapefruit League debut in Sunday's exhibition opener against the Nationals, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Arenado's integration into spring training with his new club has been ideal, as the star third baseman arrived a week early to get acquainted and has looked healthy in batting practices after dealing with a nagging shoulder issue most of last season. Sunday will bring the first opportunity for Arenado to start building in-game chemistry with his new infield mates and begin his march toward the approximately 50 at-bats he hopes to log this spring to get his timing down.
Arenado feels completely recovered from the nagging left shoulder injuries that led to his subpar 2020 season, Zachary Sliver of MLB.com reports.
The ultra-consistent slugger scuffled to a .253 average and .303 on-base percentage across 201 plate appearances during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, and he was ultimately shut down by the Rockies eight days prior to the conclusion of the regular season with left AC joint inflammation and a left shoulder bone bruise. The offseason took care of that pair of issues, and Arenado, who'd played no fewer than 155 games in any of the previous five seasons, views the health hiccup as a "blip." Expectations are naturally high for the veteran ahead of the 2021 season considering he averaged 39.8 home runs, 124.2 RBI and a .937 OPS from 2015-19 while providing Gold or Platinum Glove defense at third base.
Arenado was traded from the Rockies to the Cardinals on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Arenado was heavily pursued by the Cardinals over the past several days, and the two sides were able to reach an agreement Friday. The 29-year-old is expected to sign off on the trade in order to make the deal official. While the exact terms of the acquisition aren't yet known, the Rockies will receive multiple players and send the Cardinals approximately $50 million as part of the agreement. Arenado had a career-worst .253 batting average with eight home runs and 26 RBI in 2020, but he'll attempt to return to form with the Cardinals after averaging 39.8 home runs per year from 2015 to 2019.
Arenado was placed on the 10-day injured list with left AC joint inflammation and a left shoulder bone bruise, retroactive to Sunday.
Arenado has battled a shoulder injury, and he'll miss the final week of the regular season after being placed on the 10-day injured list. Ryan McMahon is taking his place at third base Monday against the Giants and could continue to do so over the final few games of the 2020 season.
Arenado is undergoing tests on a sore left shoulder Sunday and could miss the rest of the 2020 season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Manager Bud Black said that the team should have more information regarding Arenado's shoulder issue Monday once the results of his tests are known. However, the soreness could force the 29-year-old to miss the final week of the regular season. If he's unable to play, Daniel Murphy and Garrett Hampson could see increased playing time as Ryan McMahon and Josh Fuentes could take over at third base.
