GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado exited Saturday's split-squad game against the Indians in the sixth inning after being struck on the left hand by a pitch from Cleveland right-hander Corey Kluber.

The Rockies announced at the park that Arenado has a bone contusion, and X-ray's taken later at the club's complex came back negative, leaving Arenado's status as day to day. 

Arenado, who hit a double in each of his first two at-bats against Cleveland, was hit by Kluber's pitch with no outs and two runners on base in the top of the sixth. After a brief chat with Rockies head trainer Keith Dugger on the field, Arenado left the game and was replaced by pinch-runner Angelys Nina.

In 16 Cactus League games this spring, the 22-year-old Arenado has hit .341 (14-for-41) with seven extra-base hits. Last season, the third baseman hit .267 with 10 homers and 52 RBIs in 133 games for Colorado, earning the National League Gold Glove Award at his position as a rookie.
