Descalso is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Friday. Descalso gives way to Brandon Drury with left-hander Clayton Kershaw on the hill for Los Angeles. During Wednesday's wild-card victory over 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. 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 Sunday against the Royals. Following three consecutive starts, Descalso will make his way to the bench for the final game of the regular season. Brandon Drury will take over at second base and bat sixth in his stead.
Descalso is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants. 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. 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.
