Nolan Arenado News
The St. Louis Cardinals put third baseman Nolan Arenado (back) on the 10-day injured list due to lower-back spasms on Friday, ending his season. And thus brings to a close an inconsistent season for the 34-year-old, who bookended his year with two month-long slumps to start and finish it but offered strong hitting in between. It led to a respectable .266/.315/.459 slash line with 26 home runs, 93 RBI, and 26 doubles in 560 at-bats. Arenado always figures to identify a bit more with his glove, but his status as a perennial All-Star should keep him as a fixture in the top-third of 2024 fantasy drafts. He's as a good a bet as any for 30 homers and 100 RBI in any given year, and a formidable Cardinals lineup will look to rebound in 2024.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado is taking the day off on Wednesday against the division-rival Milwaukee Brewers. With Arenado getting a breather, Juniel Querecuto will get the start at third base for the Cards and bat in the eight-hole against Brewers right-hander Adrian Houser. St. Louis is giving the 32-year-old All-Star some rest after the club was officially eliminated from playoff contention after their loss on Tuesday. Arenado is hitting .268/.317/.461 with 26 home runs, 93 RBI, three stolen bases and 71 runs scored in 557 at-bats in 2023 in his third year with the team. However, he's been slowing down of late and has gone 14-for-64 (.219) with no homers, two doubles, six RBI, nine strikeouts, a steal and 10 runs scored in 16 starts in the month of September.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado (back) is serving as the designated hitter and is batting cleanup on Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies and right-hander Aaron Nola. Arenado left Friday night's game early with lower-back tightness and sat out on Saturday, but he's feeling better now and will return for the series finale. Taylor Motter is starting at the hot corner and will bat in the nine-hole. In 15 career at-bats against Nola, Arenado is hitting .200 with one RBI. The eight-time All-Star is a must-start in fantasy lineups, and he's hitting .289 (24-for-83) with four home runs, four doubles, 10 RBI and 12 runs scored in 21 starts in the month of August.
Arenado has put all of the worries about how he'll perform outside of Coors Field completely to bed after a monstrous 2022 season where he hit 30 homers and drove in 103, adding big time numbers to his hall-of-fame career's line. He also brought the batting up to .293, a welcome sign after that had taken a dip away from Denver. He posted his best barrel rate since 2017 (8.5%) and took his strikeout rate down to a ridiculous mark of 11.7% (seventh best in the league). He and teammate Paul Goldschmidt were forces to be reckoned with and they both really helped each other's counting stats hitting back-to-back in the order. Nolan has now gone seven straight seasons (ignoring 2020) with 100+ RBI and hitting at least 30 homers. He's as solid as they come. The only knock on him is the potential downside in batting average (he hit .255 in 2021), and the lack of steals (career-high five). Those realities keep him out of the first couple of rounds, but Arenado is a great consolation prize at third base if you miss out on the top tier. It's a thin position, and Arenado makes for a great fifth or sixth-round pick to keep the arrow pointing up for your fantasy team at the hot corner.
