Rockies' Ian Desmond: May play first against lefties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond might move over to first base against left-handed pitchers in 2018, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

As the Rockies' roster stands now, it seems like the veteran will see most of his time in left field like he did last season. Top prospect Ryan McMahon will likely take over at first base at some point in the season, but Harding speculates that having Desmond spell him against southpaws would help take some pressure off the young corner infielder. Things could change during spring training (as they did last season when Desmond got injured), but it seems like he's in line to maintain his dual position eligibility through this season.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is not in the lineup against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday for the wild-card game, Jenny Carver of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Desmond will occupy a spot on the bench in favor of Gerardo Parra with right-hander Zack Greinke on the hill for Arizona. Although Desmond didn't crack the starting nine for this winner-takes-all elimination game, he will likely appear off the bench once, or if Greinke is removed from the contest early, more than once.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Hits three-run shot in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, four RBI and two runs during Wednesday's win over Miami.

It's been a disappointing fantasy campaign for Desmond, as his .278/.329/.381 slash line is well below the marks he posted last season, and he also has just seven homers, 40 RBI, 14 stolen bases and 45 runs. Multiple injuries have taken their toll, but Desmond also hasn't taken advantage of his favorable home hitting environment.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Fills boxscore Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a second run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 4-1 win over the Padres.

The home run was his first since mid-June and just his sixth of the season, as injuries have marred Desmond's first campaign with the Rockies. He's still chipped in 13 steals in 87 games to salvage some fantasy value, though, and his .290/.324/.452 slash line over the last nine games should keep him in the lineup as the team tries to secure a spot in the postseason.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Sticks on bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Desmond is hitting just .211 (8-for-38) in 11 games since returning from the shelf, so he'll head to the bench for a second straight game as manager Bud Black gives him some time to clear his head. With Desmond out, the Rockies will send Gerardo Parra and Carlos Gonzalez to the corner-outfield spots.
