The Colorado Rockies infield has been a strength of the team, both defensively and offensively in the past few seasons. However, the infield could have a bit of a different look in 2018.
Last year, the Colorado Rockies infield was on point. Whether offensively or defensively, they showed up every night and put on a show. But, with the likely departure of Mark Reynolds, this infield should and will look a little different heading into this season. Let’s take a look at how it stands as of now.
“The Man” in the Infield
Colorado has a myriad of talent around the infield, but Nolan Arenado stands on a whole other level. He has managed to make the impossible look simple on defense, and he continues to improve offensively.
Since 2015, he has also had at least 37 home runs and 130 RBI with at least 157 games played. He has also ranked in the top eight in National League Most Valuable Player of the year Award in each of the past three seasons.
Last year, he improved his batting average by 15 points, and since 2015, he has continually improved in AVG, OBP, and OPS. Easily the best third baseman in baseball, Arenado will headline not only the infield, but the Rockies heading into this season.
