Nolan Arenado Suffers Hand Injury During Rockies vs. Marlins; X-Rays Negative

14 August 2017

Arenado was 0-for-2 at the plate before being plunked by a Vance Worley pitch on his left hand in the top of the fifth inning. The exact nature and severity of his injury should become more clear after Arenado undergoes further testing. That sort of told me how he felt. That told me that this was a pretty direct hit. "Whenever you get hit in the hand, it scares you".

"It will take some time", Arenado said, "hopefully (just) a couple days".

Arenado has 26 home runs, 100 RBIs and a.946 OPS.

"Big G (Stanton) is impressive", said Marlins manager Don Mattingly, a great hitter in his day. Worley gave up three runs in four-plus innings but contributed a two-run single. That includes Odrisamer Despaigne, who pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his first major-league save.

Stanton also extended his major league lead in homers, moving seven ahead of New York Yankees rookie Aaron Judge, who entered Sunday with 35.

Miami opened the scoring with two runs in the second.

As Stanton reflected on tying the team home run record, he talked about growing up in Los Angeles and attending Dodgers games when Sheffield played for them after leaving the Marlins.

Marlins: LHP Adam Conley (4-5, 5.43) is scheduled to start Monday against the San Francisco Giants and LHP Ty Blach (8-7, 4.15).
