Nolan Arenado played his first seven seasons in Major League Baseball with the Colorado Rockies, where at one time he was the best Third Baseman in the National League.

Making the Rockies in 2013, Arenado won the Gold Glove as a rookie and continued to do so every season he played In Colorado.  Arenado's bat would catch up to his glove in 2015, which was the season he won his first Home Run (42) and RBI Title (130) while capturing his first Silver Slugger.  He posted similar numbers in 2016, again leading the NL in Home Runs (41) and RBIs (133) with a second Silver Slugger.  Arenado "only" had 37 Home Runs and 130 RBIs in 2017, neither of which led the NL, but he batted over ,300 for the first time, and was fourth in MVP voting.

Arenado's run at the top of his position continued, with a third Home Run Title (38) in 2018, and he had 41 taters in 2019, with his second ,300-plus season.  From 2015 to 2019, Arenado was annually chosen to the All-Star Game, and he was never lower than eighth in MVP voting.

As great as Arenado was, the cost-cutting Rockies traded the infielder to the St. Louis Cardinals.  Arenado left Colorado with 235 Home Runs and a .293 Batting Average.
