3B and MVP candidate Nolan Arenado's opposite-field homer in the eighth inning was his only hit in five at-bats as the Rockies lost in their first playoff game since 2009. "I am very proud of the way we battled but I think the Diamondbacks we just the better team today," said Arenado, who had 37 homers in the regular season. "The experience is good for us, and I think a lot of these young guys know how long a major league season is, how tough it is. I think it is only going to make us better. There's still room to grow. Today was a sign of that."

There may not be two American League players who differ more standing side-by-side than the Houston Astros' Jose Altuve and the New York Yankees' Aaron Judge.Altuve is a diminutive 5-foot-6. Judge is a giant at 6-7. But when it comes to the AL Most Valuable Player Award, the difference could be measured in angstroms.The members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America are sending in their votes right now for all of the major 2017 awards. There are some that will be, or should be, unanimous picks.How do you not give Judge the AL Rookie of the Year? Same goes in the National League for Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Both were by far at the top of their classes when all was said and done.Below is our take on the deserving winners in each race. AL MVP isn't the only white-knuckler. In the AL, the Cy Young Award race between Boston's Chris Sale and Cleveland's Corey Kluber is tight, too. In the National League, the MVP, Cy Young and Manager of the Year are all worthy of g...

3B Nolan Arenado was in the lineup Monday after suffering a bruise at the base of his right hand below the thumb Sunday at San Diego. He went 1-for-3 with a double an one RBI. Arenado was injured in the third inning Sunday while hitting a soft line drive. He stayed in the game but was removed in the sixth. Before Monday's game, Arenado said, "It felt like a bruise, like a deep bruise, then it kind of swelled up a little bit. So they felt the best thing for me was to get out of there. I've dealt with hand injuries like this. It's not a big deal. Today I hit and it felt fine. I'm good to go. This time of year no one really feels that great. It's just part of the grind. There's six games left. It's just go time. You just got to deal with certain things and that's part of it."

3B Nolan Arenado, who leads the National League in RBIs and is arguably the best defensive player at his position in the majors, departed the Sunday game in San Diego with either a sprain or a bruise to his right hand. After the game, Rockies manager Bud Black said the third baseman's right hand "was swelling up during the game." Losing the All-Star for any time this week could be a severe blow to the playoff hopes of a Rockies team already in a bit of an offensive funk. He is listed as day-to-day, and Arenado said he expects to miss one game. "I think I sprained the hand," said Arenado, who has bruising on the inside of his right palm. Arenado sustained the injury when he was jammed by a slider from Padres RHP Luis Perdomo in the third inning, resulting on a soft line drive to third base. He remained in the game for one more at-bat (a ground ball) and was able to throw the ball across the infield.
