Nolan Arenado, Corey Dickerson return to action for Rockies
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado and left fielder Corey Dickerson returned to the starting lineup Wednesday night against San Diego.
Wrist soreness kept Arenado sidelined since Sunday, while Dickerson has been battling plantar fasciitis since spring training. Dickerson, who made a pinch-hit appearance on Tuesday, is hitting .280 (14 for 50) with two homers, 10 RBI and a .308 on-base percentage in 14 games. Arenado has a hit in each of his last five games. He is hitting .311 (14 for 45) with three homers and 10 RBI in 12 games.

|(4/21/15) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game.
Arenado also missed Monday's game with a sore left wrist. He was able to swing a bat earlier in the day and is available to pinch hit, if necessary, per MLB.com.
Rafael Ynoa got the start at third base for the second straight day and is batting ninth in the order.
Rockies' Nolan Arenado doesn't think wrist injury is serious
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado thinks he'll be able to return to the diamond for Tuesday night's game against the Padres.
According to The Denver Post, Arenado said he started feeling soreness in his wrist just before his final at-bat against the Dodgers on Sunday. That carried over to Monday, which is why he was a late scratch in the lineup.
“This is nothing chronic, just some soreness,” he said. “I’ve never had this before. I think I’ll be fine.”
Arenado is hitting .311 with three home runs and 10 BRI.
Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado scratched from lineup Monday

|(4/20/15) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, according to the Denver Post.
Arenado, who is hitting .311 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 45 at-bats this season, had no issues before the game, but is dealing with a sore left wrist, according to the report. Rafael Ynoa will take his place at third and bat eighth in the game.
Rockies' Arenado seems to have Giants SP Lincecum's number
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado gave his team an early 3-0 lead Wednesday at San Francisco with a three-run homer off Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum in the first inning. Lincecum got ahead of Arenado, 0-2, before Arenado golfed a 79-mph changeup into the left-center field seats.
"I just wanted to make sure I stayed on the ball, think middle, before I pulled off it," said Arenado, who is celebrating his 24th birthday Thursday, per MLB.com. "Luckily enough, I got a pitch to hit and put a swing on it."
Arenado has had plenty of success against Lincecum in his career, and it extends to spring training as well. Arenado hit a three-run homer off Lincecum in a March 31 spring game. In the regular season, Arenado is batting .417 (5 for 12) with one double, one home run and three RBI in his career against the right-hander.
"He [Arenado] is their guy," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He's a nice player. He's maybe the best defensive third baseman in the game and the guy hits in the heart of the order."
|2014 Summary: Nolan Arenado came out of his rookie season with most of his promise still unfulfilled, but he delivered on much of his potential in his second year. Only injuries slowed Arenado down, as he missed nearly a quarter of the season with a broken finger, and then was out the final two weeks with a chest contusion and pneumonia. Between those hiatuses, Arenado busted out with a .287 batting average, 18 home runs and 61 RBI in 111 games. Arenado took full advantage of Coors Field, hitting 16 of his homers there.|
Playing time status: When not sidelined by injuries, Arenado missed a grand total of one start for the Rockies. He should be a truly everyday player in 2015.
2015 Outlook: Arenado broke out for power last season, and while he also hit for a good average, this could be the year he becomes great in that category. Assuming a full season's worth of plate appearances this time around, Arenado should be a cinch to rank among the top 10 third baseman, and he has the upside to potentially reach the top five. The early portion of the middle rounds is not too early to target him.
