Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado went yard for the 40th time this season, giving him the third 40-homer season of his career. He's also hitting .315, the highest average of his career, and he's well on his way to 130+ RBI for the fourth time in his tenure. The perennial MVP-candidate has now driven in 114 runs, he's scored 97, and he's cut his strikeout rate by nearly 2% off his career total. Arenado continues to be one of the best players in both real and fantasy baseball, and he'll be another strong first-round pick next season.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado has continued to cruise this season, drilling 38 homers, knocking 110 RBI, scoring 95 runs, and playing Gold Glove defense for the most part. However, he made a slip-up on Wednesday that nearly cost Colorado the game. With a one-run lead and a runner on first in the top of the ninth, Arenado botched a throw to second for a force out, leaving men on first and second with nobody out. Fortunately, the next hitter grounded into an easy double play and Jairo Diaz was able to draw a line drive out to end the game without the run scoring. Arenado was fortunate his mistake didn't come back to bite him.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado continued his climb back to 40 home runs by knocking out his 36th of the season on Monday in LA. Arenado was one of four Rockies to homer in the slugfest against the Dodgers, and the game raised his average to .311 while also pushing him to 107 RBI and 92 runs scored this year. Arenado's bump in batting average puts him at a new career-best, and he'll likely be a top-10 finisher in the MVP voting once again. It's starting to look like he might not bust through and ever take home the hardware, but he's a strong contender year-in and year-out. With him under contract in Colorado through 2026, he's on pace to go down as the greatest member of the team in history.
