DANIEL DESCALSO NEWS

Rockies-Giants Preview

(AP) - Madison Bumgarner's return to AT&T Park will be filled with fanfare, from an MVP bobblehead giveaway to all of the postseason honors he will collect in a special ceremony. Not that the big San Francisco left-hander is thinking about it much as he concentrates on a new year with the reigning World Series champions. ''I try to keep everything as simple as I can.

Pete Kozma Might Be the Super-Sub the St. Louis Cardinals Need

Pete Kozma‘s name doesn’t come up a whole lot in St. Louis these days. Once the starting shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals, Kozma finds himself fighting for a roster spot for the second spring in a row. The odds may be in his favor this time. Kozma is a player who seems to have everything figured out on defense. Unfortunately, it is not always enough to overcome his shortcomings...

Colorado Rockies Add To Roster Depth

The Colorado Rockies augmented their roster depth yesterday by agreeing to some minor league deals with a couple of veterans, and acquiring a couple young arms through a trade with the Atlanta Braves. This flurry of activity has been the most the Rockies have seen this offseason since signing role players Nick Hundley and Daniel Descalso to free agent deals. Returning to Colorado...

Every Team’s Offseason in One Sentence

This offseason has been a historic one. From superstars being traded for lesser packages than expected, to the Yankees being left out on all major free agents, excuse me as I attempt to sum up every team’s offseason in one sentence. (Teams listed by 2015 draft order) Arizona Diamondbacks: Can La Russa be our manager yet? Houston Astros: A good bullpen is all you really need. Colorado...

Four ex-Cardinals find it pays to have worn the Birds on the Bat

ST. LOUIS -- It sure pays to play for the Cardinals. You get the big home crowds, your travel is reasonable without any coast-to-coast trips and those annual playoff-share checks make a nice bonus at the end of the year. And then, when it's time to become an ex-Cardinal, you reap more dividends just for being part of such a winning club. At least that's how it's worked out for four...

Descalso gets two-year, $3.6M deal with Rockies

DENVER -- The first big league signing of Jeff Bridich's tenure as general manager of the Colorado Rockies was far more sensible than splashy. The Rockies needed a versatile infielder, and so they added Daniel Descalso with a $3.6 million, two-year contract Tuesday. It appears to be a sound investment for a team that's trying to rebound from a 96-loss season, especially after Colorado...

Rockies agree with INF Descalso on $3.6M, 2-year contract

  Infielder Daniel Descalso had agreed to a $3.6 million, two-year contract with the Colorado Rockies. The 28-year-old has seen action all over the infield since being selected by St. Louis in the third round of the 2007 amateur draft. He's played 200 games at third base, along with 174 more at second. He's also slid over to shortstop (114 games) and filled in at first (nine games...

Non-tenders who should be on the Cardinals’ radar

As the deadline to tender contracts to players not under guaranteed deals passed, the St. Louis Cardinals parted with utility infielder Daniel Descalso. With the depth the team has amassed in the range of backup infielders, the defending NL Central Champs could afford to let Descalso pursue employment elsewhere. On the other side of the coin, teams around the league have let go of...

Poll Results: Battle for the St. Louis Cardinals utility spots

On Monday, Neal had the weekly poll question and he chose to look at the utility middle infield for 2015, a position group that will likely see a 100% turnover rate from 2014. With the losses of Daniel Descalso and Mark Ellis, the club has made a couple of moves to try to address this issue.In his post, Neal assumed, and probably rightfully so, that Pete Kozma would win a spot on...

Cardinals Announce Non-Tender For Descalso

ST. LOUIS, Mo., December 2, 2014 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced this evening that they did not tender a 2015 contract offer to infielder Daniel Descalso and he thus becomes a free-agent.

The process of creating the 2015 Cardinals continued with two significant moves on Tuesday. Matt Belisle, a RH relief pitcher, was signed to a one year deal worth 3.5M. While at the non-tender deadline last night Daniel Descalso was not offered a contract, effectively ending his time with the Cardinals and making him a free-agent. The ‘Dirty Dan’ non-tender wasn’t a surprise...

Descalso's time with Cardinals comes to an end

ST. LOUIS -- Not that I was trying but Daniel Descalso admitted that I got him. After the Cardinals clinched the NL Central on the final day of the season, Descalso was quoted in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as saying he had been part of 10 clubhouse celebrations in his four-plus seasons with the club. When I told Descalso that I counted 11, he thought for a bit and agreed. "You got...

Monday Poll: Utility Guy Battle Royale – Tale of the Tape

With the imminent departure of Daniel Descalso, who will likely seek a place with more playing time up for grabs, the St. Louis Cardinals should have a trio of utility-type players battling it out for a position on the 25-man roster.  Greg Garcia has been with the organization since he was drafted in the 7th round of 2010 out of the University of Hawaii.  Presumably, he will be...

Which '14 Cards won't return? Picture clearer in wake of Heyward deal

ST. LOUIS -- As we learned so suddenly Monday, Shelby Miller won't be wearing the Birds on the Bat in 2015. But he won't be the only Cardinals player who will be moving on. No fewer than seven other players who finished 2014 in St. Louis are not expected to return, based on moves already made and what general manager John Mozeliak said Monday.

Cardinals Add Depth with Four Signings

The St. Louis Cardinals added some depth to their major and minor league rosters this evening by signing three minor league free agents. The Cardinals picked up a middle infielder who may push Daniel Descalso out of town and Greg Garcia back to Memphis. They replaced two Memphis bullpen pieces, Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon, with some non-prospects who had intriguing numbers in...

Cards 1st Base Looking For Hambones, Scruggs & Harmony

Recently, Matt Adams and his melon-ball shape has either been dreadful or benched for Daniel Descalso. The only time Descalso should be in front of Adams is in pictures, so the photographer can see him. It's odd to think Fatt Adams isn't getting it done at the plate. I do have a useful suggestion for everyone in Missouri. Send a topless Adams into Ferguson. That would lighten...
