Arizona Diamondbacks: Daniel Descalso a rising utility player?

Daniel Descalso hasn’t earned a lot of attention throughout his career. But what he’s done for the Diamondbacks this year has helped him secure an everyday role. And it’s helped him gain recognition as the club’s utility guy. Scooter Gennett made a name for himself last year as one of the league’s best utility players.

Arizona Diamondbacks 1, New York Mets 3

I don’t know where the offense went, but on this showing - it didn’t come on the road trip. The Mets scored two unearned runs in the first. They came after an error charged to Daniel Descalso, though Ketel Marte’s throw to second, on a force attempt, was not the greatest. That proved to be enough for the Mets, as the D-backs could manage only one run, on Jake Lamb’s RBI double in the sixth inning. The D-backs were held to two runs or fewer for their fifth consecutive game, the longest such streak since they went six in September 2014. [The franchise record, incidentally, is nine...

Snake Bytes 5/17: Descalso Cannot Do It Alone

Snake Bytes 5/17: Descalso Cannot Do It Alone

When Daniel Descalso is your best hitter batting third - you’ve got problems. Diamondbacks 2, Brewers 8 Matt Koch pitched poorly, but maybe everyone deserves a bad start. We’ll see how he responds. Perhaps more concerning, is the offense is not scoring runs or even getting that many hits. That has to change if the D-backs want a shot to win the NL West. Injuries are not totally to blame. The team is hitting poorly almost across the board with Descalso being the lone bright spot. He hit his 5th homer and is doing his job. Related: Koch’s Stellar Run Ends as Crew Breaks...

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 8

Bad starting pitching? Or bad hitting? Why not have both! The wheels truly fell off the Kochmobile this afternoon, as he was tagged for eight earned runs in 4.1 innings. Most of the damage came courtesy of the long-ball, with the Brewers clubbing four home-runs off Matt Koch. But there were a lot of hard-hit balls in general: he allowed nine hits and a walk, not striking out a batter. T.J. McFarland led the mop-up operation with 2.2 scoreless frames, followed by zeroes from Jorge De La Rosa and Andrew Chafin. The offense was held to two runs, both coming on Daniel Descalso’s first-inning...

Snake Bytes 5/16: Daniel Desclutcho Snaps Streak

The Diamondbacks’ offense struggled yet again, scoring only two runs on three hits. Timing is everything however, as Daniel Descalso’s eighth-inning knock pushed home the winning run, ending Arizona’s losing streak at six games. Milwaukee 1, Arizona 2 Zack Greinke and Jhoulys Chacin engaged in an old-fashioned pitching duel. Of the two, Chacin had the better night, but neither one of them finished the game. The Diamondbacks had better luck against the Milwaukee bullpen than the Brewers did against the three-headed monster of Hirano, Bradley, and Boxberger. Descalso Comes Through in...

PHOENIX — Daniel Descalso singled home Jarrod Dyson with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday night to snap a six-game losing streak.The Diamondbacks opened the game with the worst batting average in the majors (.223) and learned earlier in the day they had lost A.J. Pollock for four-to-eight weeks with a fractured left thumb. They then managed just three hits against starter Jhoulys Chacin and three relievers, but starter Zack Greinke stifled Milwaukee over six innings and Arizona tied together just enough offense to get...
