Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado could be out until late June or early July with a broken finger, the team acknowledged on Tuesday according to a tweet from Fox Sports' Jon Morosi.

The 23-year-old Arenado, who won last year's Gold Glove award, left the team's 3-2 road loss to the Braves on Friday after sliding headfirst into second base. It was initially reported that he suffered a left mallet finger fracture.  He had hit his 17th double of the season on the play but was subsequently replaced by Charlie Culberson.

In addition to providing stellar defense, at the time of his injury Arenado was hitting .305/.333/.489 with six home runs and 28 RBI in 49 games this season.

The Rockies are third in the NL West at 27-24.
