RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Descalso saw his playing time drop for the third consecutive season, serving another year as the Cardinals' utility man, logging innings at all four infield positions while hitting .242 in 161 at-bats. With a .243/.313/.341 career line across 1,223 at bats, there is little get excited about beyond Descalso's versatility. He may have a clearer path to playing time after signing with the Rockies in December, especially with the organization's revolving door at second base. Even if that materializes, Descalso is unlikely to become more than a player to stream when he gets a prolonged stretch of playing time at Coors Field.

2014

Descalso took on a larger role in 2013 after Pete Kozma struggled mightily, and he delivered 43 RBI and 43 runs across 358 plate appearances. The 27-year-old was also able to lower his strikeout rate (15.6%) last season, but he'll be blocked at shortstop by the Cardinals' addition of Jhonny Peralta. Descalso figures to see a significant drop in playing time serving mostly as organizational depth. If Kolten Wong struggles at second base, Descalso may get enough playing time to match his 2013 production.

2013

Descalso is one of those guys that managers love: he can play all over the infield, can play almost every day and he'll come off the bench if he has to. Managers love guys like him, but fantasy owners don't have to. If a fantasy owner paid a few bucks for the guy sharing the second-base job with Tyler Greene, he got 374 at-bats. Congratulations. We hope he enjoyed the six stolen bases, 26 RBI and .227 batting average, because those were the highlights. He qualifies at three positions in 2013, so that could give him a little value, but we've probably already seen his upside and it's not pretty.

2012

Descalso spent all year on the St. Louis roster, playing the role that Nick Punto was often too injured to play. He started 61 games at the hot corner and started several other games at second and short. He only qualifies at third base, however, but barring another injury to David Freese he'll instead spend more time at second base this year, where the Cardinals have said he'll get first shot over Skip Schumaker.

2011

Descalso isn't going to hit .300. He's not going to hit 20 home runs. He's not going to steal 20 bases. What he *can* do is carve out a nice role as a utilityman for the Cardinals. The 24-year-old will probably back up Skip Schumaker and Ryan Theriot in 2011, and he could see some time at the hot corner as well.
