Known for glove, Nolan Arenado improving at plate

DENVER (AP) - Already known for his hit-robbing glove, Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado is working on becoming more of an all-around player.

He sends Troy Tulowitzki batting practice video for evaluation and has cool hitting conversations with Justin Morneau in the cold tub.

The education of Arenado as a hitter is coming along quite well, with the second-year player off to a sizzling start at the plate. He's in the midst of a 14-game hitting streak that's elevated his average to .290 and his place in the batting order to the second spot.

Colorado opens a three-game trip to Los Angeles on Friday with a chance to take over first place in the NL West.
