In 75 at-bats, the 29-year-old first baseman is hitting .333/.433/.480 with two homers and 18 RBI. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Jul 17 - 5:45 PM

Daniel Descalso swatted his second home run of the season on Sunday, accounting for his squad's only run in a loss to the Dodgers.

Descalso's seventh-inning blast pulled the Rockies to within two runs at 3-1, but they would fail to get any closer. He finished the afternoon 1-for-3, raising his season slash to .373/.471/.542 to go along with two bombs and 17 RBI.
Jul 3 - 7:05 PM

Daniel Descalso went 3-for-3 with two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Descalso picked up an RBI single in the fourth and an RBI double in the ninth. The latter drew the Rockies to within 5-3, but they would not score again. While he has seen just 52 at-bats this season, the utility infielder has done a nice job with his opportunities and is hitting .385/.484/.519 with one homer and 16 RBI. Still, no fantasy upside exists here.

Daniel Descalso cracked a pinch-hit solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Pinch-hitting for starter Eddie Butler to lead off the seventh inning, Descalso came through with a solo home run off Dodgers reliever Joe Blanton. The dinger was Descalso's first of the season. The 29-year-old utility man has seen just 28 at-bats this season and lacks any kind of fantasy intrigue.
Jun 8 - 2:24 AM

Daniel Descalso went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Starting at designated hitter in the American League park, Descalso made his manager look smart by singling and scoring in the fifth and seventh innings. It was just his second start and fifth appearance of the season after he missed the first month and a half with a fractured left hand. He'll serve in a superutility role for the Rockies this year and carries no fantasy value.
May 26 - 10:32 PM

Rockies activated INF Daniel Descalso from the 15-day disabled list.

Descalso fractured his hand back in mid-March but is ready to go after a rehab assignment. He'll back up all over the infield.

Daniel Descalso (hand) served as the designated hitter in an extended spring training game on Thursday.

Daniel Descalso is scheduled to have the brace removed from his fractured left hand on April 25 or 26.

He obviously can't do many baseball activities until that happens, which means we're probably looking at a mid-to-late May regular season debut for the utility infielder. Descalso suffered the small fracture at the top of his left hand in the middle of March.

Rockies placed INF Daniel Descalso on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left hand.

Descalso suffered the injury a few weeks ago. He will miss all of April.
Apr 3 - 1:26 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Daniel Descalso will miss "several weeks" with a very small fracture in the top of his left hand.

Descalso suffered the injury when he was hit in the hand by a pitch on Friday. The 29-year-old was slated to serve as a backup infielder, but now the Rockies will have to make due without him in the early part of the season.
Mar 15 - 12:43 PM

Daniel Descalso exited Friday's game after being hit on the hand by a pitch.

He was spotted leaving the ballpark, presumably to get X-rays. The Rockies could have more on Descalso's status later Friday.
Mar 11 - 4:53 PM

Daniel Descalso clubbed a solo home run in the eighth inning on Thursday, leading the Rockies to a 4-3 victory over the Padres in San Diego.

As a team, the Rockies were only able to scratch out five hits in the contest. They still flexed their muscles however, with Carlos Gonzalez, Corey Dickerson, Nolan Arenado and Descalso each leaving the yard. With his 1-for-3 performance, he raised his season slash to an anemic .211/.287/.348 to compliment his five homers and 21 RBI.

Daniel Descalso had two hits, three RBI and a steal after replacing an injured Troy Tulowitzki on Friday.

Who needs Tulo? Descalso entered the night with just three hits all season, the last coming on April 22. He upped his average from .086 to .132. The three-RBI game was his first since May 21, 2013, when he drove in five runs.

Daniel Descalso (oblique) played in a minor league game Wednesday.

Descalso was set to play four innings defensively and bat each inning in a minors game. The infielder suffered a strained right oblique roughly 10 days prior. With another 10 days or so left in camp Descalso still has time to get into shape before the start of the season.

Daniel Descalso was scratched from the Rockies lineup on Sunday due to a strained oblique.

The Rockies are calling it a minor oblique strain for the time being, though he's still expected to miss a couple of games. The veteran infielder is expected to perform in a utility role for the Rockies this season.
