Rockies' Ian Desmond: Plates two runs in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 2-for-4 with two RBI during Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

While Desmond sports a rock-solid .302 batting average through his past 16 games, he has just one extra-base hit and a .349 slugging percentage during that span. It's beginning to look like the fractured hand he sustained in spring training may still be lingering and limiting his power. The upside is definitely there for a bounce-back stretch, and playing half his games at Coors Field provides a nice fantasy boost, so patience could pay off in the long run.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Collects three singles in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 3-for-5 with two runs, one RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 8-1 win.

Desmond was just three for his last 20 before collecting three singles on Wednesday. He scored a pair of runs, drove in another and stole his third base of the year, too. Desmond has put together four 20/20 seasons in his last five, so his track record says he's due for an increase in production. Being in a Colorado offense that ranks second in the NL in runs doesn't hurt either.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Hits bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Desmond is batting .182 over his past seven games, so he'll get a night off Tuesday. Gerardo Parra will pick up a start in left field in his place.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Hits grand slam against Friars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 1-for-5 with a grand slam during Saturday's win over San Diego.

With a .272/.298/.392 slash line over 132 plate appearances since returning from a hand injury April 30, it's been an underwhelming start to the campaign for the veteran. Desmond actually has a higher road slugging percentage (.444) than his .321 mark at Coors Field, and he also has just four extra-base hits through his past 20 games. Hand injuries can linger and zap power, so it isn't out of the question that Desmond might still be hampered by the ailment. It's worth noting that his 33.3 hard-hit percentage is above the 30.3 mark he posted last season, so Saturday's bomb could be the beginning of a change of fortune for 31-year-old Desmond.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is not in the lineup Monday against the Mariners, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Despite being in the midst of a six-game hitting streak (8-for-26, .308), Desmond will head to the bench for Monday's series opener. Gerardo Parra will man left field in his stead, while Mark Reynolds draws the start at first base.
