Diamondbacks' Daniel Descalso: Stays in lineup, reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Descalso went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Monday's 10-2 win over the Braves.

Though J.D. Martinez (wrist) was cleared to return to the lineup for the series opener, the versatile Descalso managed to stick in the starting nine for the fifth consecutive game, manning second base this time with Brandon Drury getting the day off. It's expected that Descalso's playing-time opportunities will still take a hit from here on out, but he'll likely earn at least a handful of starts per week thanks to his ability to slot in at a number of different positions and steady eye at the plate. Descalso has racked up eight walks in his last seven games, which has helped him atone for a 4-for-19 showing at the plate during that time.

Diamondbacks' Daniel Descalso: Manning leadoff spot Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Descalso will start in left field and lead off Sunday against the Nationals.

Descalso will draw his fourth straight start Sunday, mostly as a byproduct of the newly acquired J.D. Martinez still battling a hand injury. Since A.J. Pollock will join Martinez on the bench for rest in the series finale, Descalso will benefit from a move up in the lineup, though it may not improve his DFS outlook much with a tough matchup with the Nats' Stephen Strasburg awaiting him.

Diamondbacks' Daniel Descalso: Scores, drives in run as leadoff man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Descalso went 0-for-2 with a walk, run and RBI in Thursday's 12-2 win over the Reds.

The Diamondbacks gave several key regulars the afternoon off due to the early start time of Thursday's contest, allowing Descalso to not only reenter the lineup, but also serve as the club's leadoff man. He walked in his first plate appearance of the game and would later to come around to score on Jake Lamb's three-run homer, giving the Diamondbacks an early lead that they would maintain throughout the day. With a .349 on-base percentage on the season, Descalso has been serviceable when he enters the lineup, particularly while Yasmany Tomas (groin) has been sidelined since early June. However, with the newly acquired J.D. Martinez primed to serve as the team's everyday left fielder once he recovers from a minor hand injury, Descalso will likely see his opportunities dwindle over the weeks to come.

Diamondbacks' Daniel Descalso: Likely to sit out more often
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Descalso is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Reds, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Following the Diamondbacks' acquisition of J.D. Martinez on Tuesday night, David Peralta will move over to left field while Martinez occupies right field, his natural position. This alignment leaves Descalso without a path to consistent playing time. He's been playing fairly well over the summer, posting a .278 batting average with 21 RBI in June and July, although he'll likely only get starts one or two days per week now that he's back in a reserve utility role.

Diamondbacks' Daniel Descalso: Shows versatility in win over Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Descalso went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, an RBI and two runs against the Reds on Tuesday.

He started in left field, then moved to third base and finally first base as the Diamondbacks shuffled their stars out of the lineup late in the blowout. However, Descalso is going to find time in left hard to come by moving forward, as the D-Backs acquired J.D. Martinez from the Tigers on Tuesday, and he'll immediately slot in as the starter there. That'll press the 30-year-old Descalso back into a utility role, where he's most useful to the team.
