Descalso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso has been seeing regular starts at shortstop in the absence of Trevor Story (thumb), but he'll give way to Christhian Adames for the Sunday afternoon contest. It will be well-deserved, as he launched a two run homer in Saturday's contest, his third long ball of the year.

Descalso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins, Jenny Cavnar of ROOT SPORTS Rocky Mountain Region reports.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso has taken the reins of the starting shortstop gig since Trevor Story (thumb) was ruled out for the rest of the season, going 7-for-19 with five RBI and two runs over the last six games. He'll give way to Cristhian Adames on Sunday in what amounts to a day off.

Descalso (shoulder) is in the lineup Friday, batting seventh and starting at shortstop.

EDGE Analysis

Less than 24 hours after suffering a left shoulder contusion, Descalso will draw back into the Rockies' lineup for Friday's series opener against the Marlins. His health is of the utmost importance for the Rockies after Trevor Story was diagnosed with a torn thumb ligament that will likely sideline him for the remainder of the season. Descalso's return to the lineup will bump Rafel Ynoa and Cristhian Adames back to the bench.

Descalso was diagnosed with a left shoulder contusion Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The newly minted starting shortstop for the Rockies exited Thursday's contest after running into a wall on an attempt to catch a pop fly. It appears that he may had dodged a serious injury after being examined by the team's medical staff, but this is an injury that could sideline him for a few days. Now that Trevor Story (thumb) is likely done for the season, Cristhian Adames or Rafael Ynoa are the only shortstop options on the active roster should Descalso miss additional time beyond Thursday.

Descalso left the game early with a left shoulder injury on Thursday after running into a wall trying to catch a fly ball, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is bad timing for the Rockies, who just lost their starting shortstop Trevor Story for the season with a thumb injury earlier this week. Descalso was replaced by Rafael Ynoa on Thursday. An update on the injury will be announced later Thursday night or Friday.

Descalso is out of the lineup for Thursday's matchup with the Dodgers, Jenny Cavnar of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso will get the night off after starting the last three games as Cristhian Adames fills in for him at shortstop and bats seventh. Descalso has turned in a great season after missing the first month and a half with a hand injury and is posting a career best BA, OBP, and SLG.

Descalso batted 13-for-51 with five RBI and eight walks in July.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso's playing time went way up in July with 15 starts, compared to just 10 over May and June, in part because of his 1.003 OPS through June. He still won't see everyday action, but you can expect to see him often because of his strong .337/.426/.446 line against righties and ability to play five different positions.

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.
