Nolan Arenado News
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado will get the day off on Wednesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. Arenado and a few others will take a seat a day after the team clinched the National League Central division on Tuesday. Rookie Juan Yepez will get the nod at the hot corner instead and will bat cleanup against Brewers right-hander Brandon Woodruff. Yepez has handled himself quite well in his first major-league season for the Cardinals and he's hit well in limited opportunities of late, going 7-for-18 (.389) with a homer, two RBI and three runs scored in six games in the last two weeks of play. He'll be a solid under-the-radar DFS play against Milwaukee.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado went 1-for-4 with his fifth stolen base of the season and a strikeout in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the visiting Cincinnati Reds. Arenado is hitting a strong .298/.359/.550 with a .910 OPS, 29 home runs, 96 RBI, 69 runs scored and five steals in 562 plate appearances across 133 games in his second year in St. Louis. The seven-time All-Star remains a must-start in all fantasy formats, but he hasn't been as hot so far in the month of September. In 12 games this month, he's gone 9-for-45 (.200) with a homer, seven RBI and five runs scored. The good news is that he's in the midst of a modest five-game hitting streak.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado is getting the day off on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. This looks just to be a routine day of rest for the veteran third baseman who's slashing a paltry .185/.214/.259 over the last seven contests. He's still having an excellent season overall with a .298/.360/.548 to go along with 28 home runs and 93 RBI across 496 at-bats.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado proved he could hit outside of Colorado in 2021 but was an exclusive power hitter, slashing .255/.312/.494 with 31 HRs, 81 runs, 105 RBI, and two stolen bases over 157 games. His Statcast data of last year was similar to previous seasons, except for his 6.7 Barrel%, the second-lowest of his career. However, he offset the low barrels with a career-high 45.8 Pull%. His high averages with the Rockies were aided by consistently high BABIPs, courtesy of Coors Field. But, his .249 BABIP last year should regress towards the norm, and his ability to put the bat on the ball (career 14.9 K%, 14.7 K% in 2021) suggests at least a bit of a batting average improvement, even with his moderate 89 MPH average exit velocity from last season. He's slugged 241 HRs the past seven seasons, so he'll no doubt put up north of 30 home runs again, and Arenado's spot in the middle of the Cardinal's lineup almost guarantees at least 95 RBI with 80-plus runs. He won't be a factor in steals with his 21st percentile sprint speed and 18 career stolen bases. But his contributions in three categories without killing batting average assures he's a good selection at his ADP of 73, especially at a shallow third base position. He's a better value pick than the next third baseman, Kris Bryant, who's going at pick 88.
