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