Rockies sign Daniel Descalso to two-year contract

8 Comments

Non-tendered by the Cardinals two weeks ago, Daniel Descalso has agreed to a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Rockies.

Descalso was a semi-regular in St. Louis for the past four seasons, logging an average of 340 plate appearances per year. He hit .242 with a .654 OPS during that time, which is definitely utility man-caliber offense.

He figures to fill in all over the infield for Colorado and the 28-year-old could be pressed into extended duty if the Rockies decide to make a major trade.
