His left hand was thickly bandaged, but Rockies all-star third baseman Nolan Arenado was able to breathe a sigh of relief after escaping serious injury Sunday at Marlins Park.

Stanton is on pace to hit 56 home runs this year.

Arenado is one part of the heart of Colorado's lineup alongside Charlie Blackmon, and losing him for significant time would make competing in the National League all the more hard.

Colorado still has a four-game lead in the battle for one of two NL wild-card spots, but the Rockies have lost five of their past six games.

Valaika or Amarista are fine options in the short term, but Colorado needs a healthy Arenado anchoring the lineup to reach its full potential. "Luckily it's not broken, but it hurts and it's going to take some time, hopefully just a couple of days".

Arenado left the game immediately, but X-rays were negative.

Colorado's National League MVP candidate departed from the game in the fifth inning after getting drilled on a pitch by Vance Worley.

"I had him for a few years, and nobody hits the ball harder than he does", Redmond said.

While on vacation at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump on Friday tweeted further heated warnings to North Korea . He added: "We can not play fast and loose with nuclear weapons and nuclear threats".


Arenado, a four-time Gold Glove victor and a three-time All-Star, said he was told by team doctors that a stint on the disabled list is not likely. Marlins RF Giancarlo Stanton leads the majors with 19 go-ahead homers, which is also a franchise record.

"We were a little light", Mattingly said.

As for the 6-foot-6, 250-pound Stanton, virtually everyone is impressed with what he is accomplishing, including Rockies bench coach Mike Redmond, who used to be his manager with the Marlins.

In Arlington, Texas, Cole Hamels pitched seven scoreless innings, Elvis Andrus scored each time after his three hits and the Rangers handed Houston their fourth straight loss.

In Philadelphia, Amed Rosario's first career homer broke a tie leading off the ninth, Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto also went deep and NY beat Philadelphia. Worley gave up three runs in four-plus innings but contributed a two-run single.

"We're all extremely excited to have him back in a big league uniform", Black said.
