Descalso went 3-for-3 with a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays

EDGE Analysis

The infielder's average had been in a crashing since mid-month, but Descalso's three-hit performance got him back on track. Wednesday marked his second three-hit game of the season, but just hits first multi-hit day since May 30. The veteran's opportunities are limited with the young studs circling the Rockies infield, but Descalso continues to make the most of his chances and can be useful in daily formats if deployed correctly.

Descalso is in the lineup and batting sixth for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso will get the start at second base in place of DJ LeMahieu who is out after suffering a left knee contusion Sunday. Descalso is hitting .364/.462/.500 with one home run and 12 RBI through 44 at-bats on the season.

Descalso is slashing .400/.455/.533 with nine RBI and eight runs in 30 at-bats this season.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso has been performing well in the few opportunities he's received this season, but there doesn't seem to be an opportunity for him to be anything more than a reserve utility infielder going forward. The 29-year-old could see some more playing time if one of the Rockies' infielders get injured or begins to struggle significantly, but for the time being, he'll likely spend most of his time watching the action from the dugout.

Descalso was activated from the disabled list Friday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso has been out since mid-March with a hand injury, but after tearing up the minors during his rehab assignment, he's all set to rejoin the Rockies. The 29-year-old will likely slot in as a reserve utility infielder going forward. To make room for him on the roster, Ben Paulsen was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Descalso (hand) got seven at-bats in an extended spring game, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso appears to be progressing nicely through his rehab process, as there have been no reported issues for a long time. The utility man is expected to begin a rehab assignment Monday, after which he will likely be able to rejoin the Rockies.

Descalso (hand) is scheduled to have his brace removed sometime in late-April, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso was scheduled to meet with a doctor to see if the brace could be removed, but the results of the appointment apparently weren't good enough to retire it. This is unfortunate for the utility man, as this likely means that he won't be able to return to baseball activities for another couple weeks. His timetable for return should become clearer once the brace is removed.

Descalso (hand) is down to wearing a brace after he had the cast removed from his hand last week, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso's hand seems to be improving, as the cast removal shows, but he hasn't been able to do anything baseball-related yet. He is slated to meet with a doctor next week to see if the brace can be removed, which could allow him to get back to baseball activities.

Descalso (hand) has been moved to the 15-day disabled list.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso's extended absence shouldn't have a big impact given his role as a utility infielder, but it's worth noting Christian Adames will nab that role for the time being. The veteran got off to a slow start in spring training (three hits in 15 at-bats) prior to suffering a small fracture in his left hand in mid-march. Even if he were to obtain an everyday role at some point, Descalso lacks the power or speed necessary to be a major fantasy asset.

Descalso will be out for several weeks after suffering a small fracture in his left hand, according to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post.

EDGE Analysis

Previously expected to fill a utility role, Descalso is now unlikely to be ready for Opening Day. Rafael Ynoa, Trevor Story and Cristhian Adames, among others, now have better odds to crack the Opening Day roster.

Descalso went 1-for-3 with a game-winning solo homer in the Rockies' 4-3 victory over the Padres on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder got one of his occasional starts in place of DJ LeMahieu and made it count, with his solo homer leading off the eighth against Joaquin Benoit securing the win for Colorado. Descalso has only five homers on the season and has generally had a disappointing 2015 campaign with the bat, currently hitting 28 points below his career .239 average.
