Daniel Descalso
31-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
Arizona Diamondbacks
2018 Fantasy Outlook
During his first season in Arizona, Descalso was thrust into a sizable role due to the team's injury woes, and he proved useful, posting career highs in home runs (10), RBI (51), runs (47), walk rate (12.1 percent), flyballs (43.2 percent) and hard contact (37.0 percent, per Fangraphs). He leaned heavily on hitter-friendly Chase Field (.357 wOBA, .274 elsewhere) and matchups with righties (.332, .267 lefties), especially since he tilted toward more power with a career-high 22.4 strikeout rate. The useful .264 average he notched in 2016 dipped 31 points with his new approach. Descalso must have done just enough, however, as Arizona picked up his 2018 option, seemingly confident they could use him if similar circumstances arise. Most of his value figures to come from his versatility and his presence as a veteran in the clubhouse. Read Past Outlooks
