    • Descalso went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in Sunday's 9-2 win over the Reds. Descalso launched a three-run blast to center field in the first as the Diamondbacks cruised to a seven-run victory. Prior to Sunday's tilt, he hadn't homered since June 27 against Miami, so his production at the dish has certainly slowed of late. Descalso has gone 4-for-18 with two extra-base hits and three RBI through seven games in August.

    • Descalso went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in Saturday's 9-4 win over the Padres. Despite only starting eight of the Diamondbacks' past 14 games, Descalso has drawn a remarkable 14 walks during that span while striking out only three times. That extreme plate discipline has aided him to a .583 on-base percentage over that stretch, but it hasn't helped him nearly as much in traditional 5x5 formats. He's hitting a credible .318 since July 10 but has failed to record an RBI.

    • Descalso went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and two runs Sunday in the Diamondbacks' 6-1 win over the Rockies. Descalso made the most of his lone start in three-game series against his former team, reaching base three times to lift his on-base percentage to a robust .371. The 31-year-old quietly ranks third on the Diamondbacks in RBI (44), but he's only driven in two runs over his 16 appearances in July.

    • Descalso went 1-for-3 with a walk Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 19-2 loss to the Rockies. He also pitched 2.2 innings in relief, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two. After starter Shelby Miller (elbow) and long reliever T.J. McFarland (neck) departed with injuries, the Diamondbacks had few fresh bullpen arms on hand to cover the rest of the innings in the blowout victory. As a result, Descalso was summoned for his fifth career appearance as a pitcher, with he and catcher Alex Avila (two innings) becoming the first position-player teammates to toss multiple innings in the same game since July 1945. Descalso's results on the mound weren't pretty, but he and Avila at least spared the Diamondbacks from having to overwork their other relief options amid a blowout loss.

    • Diamondbacks' Daniel Descalso: Retreats to bench
      By RotoWire Staff

      Descalso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres. Descalso was one of three Diamondbacks batters to produce three hits in Saturday's 20-5 victory, with the veteran finishing the evening 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and three runs. The run total actually surpassed Descalso's output (two) from his previous 18 games combined, a stretch during which he recorded only six hits in 44 at-bats. He'll take a seat in the series finale with lefty Clayton Richard on the hill, but Descalso may continue to benefit from a handful of starts per week against right-handed pitching in the wake of his bounce-back effort Saturday.
