Arenado has shown great offensive consistency

The third baseman of the Cardinals accumulates seven harvests of 30 HRs and 100 chartered

I did it for Nolan Arenado In this 2022 harvest it is not surprising at all, he has been showing great consistency with the wood as well as defensively season after season.

If the pandemic had not disrupted baseball in 2020, we would be talking about eight consecutive seasons of 30 home runs and 100 RBIs, and not seven of the last eight for the current St. Louis Cardinals third baseman, which has been; plus Paul Goldschmidt, an offensive spark plug for his team in 2022.

However, Nolan Arenado reached the second most harvests with 30/100 in his career (7), equaling Alex Rodríguez, who did the same consecutively from 2004 to 2010, which means that Arenado matched his pace, and if the pandemic had not arrived, perhaps he would have been able to surpass him as the third baseman with the most consecutive harvests of 30 HRs and 100 CIs.

Similarly, it should be noted that the native of Newport Beach, California, is just one shot away from reaching 300 in his career, and if he did so in his next game, he would be the player who reaches that number of homers in fewer games. .

For his part, he would enter his name in a group of so far only two hot corner players (minimum 50% of his games at that position) with 300 homers in his first 10 seasons. They are: Eddie Matthews (370) and Mike Schmidt (314).

Another golden glove is possible

Now, the Californian has shown an elite defense at third, which could be taking him to his tenth consecutive gold glove in the National League. The only challenger facing him is Ke'Bryan Hayes, who outranks him in defensive runs saved (20 to 18) and outs made above average (15 to 14).

However, Nolan Arenado matches the Pirates player in the number of runs prevented (11), which would undoubtedly make a potential vote that includes both of them more close.

Meanwhile, in 143 games on offense he is batting .295 (543-160), with 41 doubles, 70 runs scored, .350 OBP, .540 slugging and .898 OPS.
