Arenado is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
Arenado has started eight straight games and gone 8-for-35 (.229) with five home runs and nine RBI during that stretch. He'll give way to Ryan McMahon at the hot corner in this one.
Arenado went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 7-6 win over Miami.
Arenado ripped a solo blast in the first inning before giving Colorado a late lead with his two-run shot in the eighth. After hitting just seven homers in all of June and July, the 28-year-old slugger has already launched eight in August, giving him 30 for the season.
Arenado went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 3-0 shutout of the Marlins.
With two outs in the eighth inning, Arenado launched a solo homer off Ryne Stanek for the final scoring of the night. Arenado has now homered in back-to-back games for the first time since May, while the Rockies are now 20-6 when Arenado goes deep. That's not a coincidence considering his slash line of .303/.365/.549 with 28 long balls, 91 RBI and 78 runs scored on the year.
Arenado went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Arenado ambushed Archie Bradley on the first pitch of his at-bat and hit a 423-foot blast to win the game for the Rockies. The 28-year-old has a .277/.323/.491 slash line with seven home runs in 31 games since the All-Star break.
Arenado is not in Sunday's lineup against the Padres.
This is the first game he has missed since July 25. He is hitting .346 with four home runs in 14 straight starts. Ryan McMahon will start at third base and hit fifth.
