Josh Fuentes Shares Third Base Position with Cousin

Josh Fuentes grew up playing whiffle ball with his cousin Nolan Arenado, who is the all-star third baseman for the Colorado Rockies.  Fuentes is playing in the Rockies’ farm system and his current position is also third base.

25-year-old Fuentes is in his first season at the Triple-A level with Albuquerque.  Last year he hit .307, with 15 home runs and 72 RBI with Double-A Hartford.

Arenado is currently in his sixth season with the Rockies, where he has been a Gold Glove third baseman in each of his prior seasons.  He led the National League in home runs in 2015 and 2016 and has been in the top 10 of the MVP Award voting for the past three seasons.
