ST. LOUIS — Nolan Arenado's hot start for the Cardinals is earning him some league-wide recognition.

Arenado was named the National League Player of the Month for the month of April on Monday.

Arenado hit .375 with five home runs, 17 RBIs, 12 extra-base hits and a 1.125 OPS. That OPS led the league in April.

Arenado is currently second in the NL in OPS, fourth in average, fourth in on-base percentage, first in slugging percentage, third in home runs, third in RBIs and third in doubles.

This is the third time Arenado has been named NL Player of the Month, winning the award with the Rockies in Sept. 2015 and July 2017.
