Descalso will remain in Arizona after the Diamondbacks exercised his team option Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso hit just .233 for the Diamondbacks in 2017, but the veteran utility player walked at a career-best 12.1 percent clip and will be owed just $2 million on the final year of his contract. The 31-year-old is a better real life player than fantasy asset, so he can likely be left off your fantasy radar heading into 2018 drafts.

Descalso is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso gives way to Brandon Drury with left-hander Clayton Kershaw on the hill for Los Angeles. During Wednesday's wild-card victory to Colorado, Descalso went 1-for-3 with one home run, two RBI and two runs scored, and will likely return to the starting nine for Saturday's game with Rich Hill on the mound.

Descalso went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks, two runs and two RBI in the Diamondbacks' 11-8 win over the Rockies on Wednesday in the National League wild-card game.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso had previously homered twice during his former team in the regular season and didn't wait long to torment the Rockies in a playoff elimination game, with his two-run blast in the third inning giving Arizona a six-run lead. Though Descalso slashed just .194/.296/.387 in September, he still looks bound to retain primary duties at second base on the strong side of a platoon with Brandon Drury during the Diamondbacks' divisional series with the Dodgers.

Descalso is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The Diamondbacks are resting their starters after clinching home-field advantage for the wild-card game, so Descalso will give way to Brandon Drury at the keystone.

Descalso is not in the lineup against the Marlins on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso hits the bench for the second time in the past three outings following an 0-for-5 day at the plate Wednesday. With southpaw Adam Conley on the mound for Miami, Brandon Drury will nab another start at the keystone during the series opener.

Descalso is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

As usual, Descalso will head to the bench with a left-handed pitcher (Travis Wood) starting for the opposition. In his place, Brandon Drury will start at the keystone, batting sixth.

Descalso went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso wasn't a factor in a quiet day overall for the Diamondbacks' attack, but it won't prevent manager Torey Lovullo from continuing to lean on Descalso as the team's primary starter at second base against right-handed pitching. His main threat for playing time, platoon mate Brandon Drury, offers more power production from the middle infield, but Descalso's superior on-base skills seem to carry greater weight in the eyes of Lovullo.

Descalso is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso has struggled against southpaws this season -- hitting just .188 with a .650 OPS in 82 plate appearances -- so he'll head to the bench with the opposition sending a lefty to the mound (Kyle Freeland). Brandon Drury will take over at the keystone in his stead.

Descalso went 2-for-2 with a solo home run, two walks and three runs during Saturday's loss to San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Descalso is receiving enough playing time to provide value in deeper settings. He's also been productive of late with four homers, nine RBI, 11 runs and a .290/.380/.522 slash line through his past 24 games. His eligibility at multiple positions is also a sneaky bonus.
