Rockies' Ian Desmond: Retreats to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is not in the lineup Monday against the Cardinals.

Desmond is 7-for-22 (.318) with a pair of doubles and six RBI since returning from the disabled list, but he'll get another day off Monday to ease back into action. Gerardo Parra will man left field in his stead.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Rides pine Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Desmond is 3-for-5 with three RBI in two games since coming back from the disabled list, but he'll get a night off likely as a way to ease him back into action. Gerardo Parra will fill in for him in left field for the evening.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Activated, in Sunday lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond (calf) was activated from the 10-day DL prior to Sunday's matchup against the Mets, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Not only will Desmond be activated, but he'll start in left field and bat fifth in the order, per Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain. Desmond hasn't seen the field since July 2 due to the ailment, but after taking the All-Star break to recover, he appears ready to regain his old role. He'll carry a .709 OPS into Sunday's start.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Still aiming for Sunday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond (calf) continues to target a return to the lineup Sunday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Manager Bud Black told reporters that Desmond would test out his calf before Saturday's game as a final tuneup before potentially returning to the lineup for the series finale in New York. Provided that Saturday's conditioning work goes off without a hitch, look for Desmond to draw back into the lineup as the left fielder Sunday against Mets lefty Steven Matz.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Could return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond (calf) could return to the Rockies on Saturday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

If that timeline holds, it'll mean only eight games out of the lineup for Desmond thanks to the All-Star break. The Rockies are in New York to face the Mets this weekend, and then they'll return home for a three-game set with San Diego. Surprisingly, Desmond hasn't been able to take advantage of the friendly confines of Coors Field over his first 87 at-bats there this season, as he has a meager .287/.297/.356 batting line there. However, now that he's further removed from his season-opening broken hand and this latest ailment is a thing of the past, we could see Desmond go on a strong second-half run.
