The 22 year old infielder left the game in the sixth inning. Now according to Troy Renck on Twitter, the young third baseman sustained a bone contusion in his left hand but it doesn’t appear too serious.
Bone contusion on left hand for Nolan Arenado. Will get precautionary X-rays when he gets back.

Arenado has hit .357/.564/.921 across the line with two home runs, five RBI’s, two doubles and one triple off 12 hits through 39 at-bats this Spring. Tough break for this kid, but at least nothing serious came out of this injury.
