Daniel Descalso signs with Colorado Rockies

The 66-win Rockies might pay Daniel Descalso as much as $4.6 million over the next two seasons. Former St. Louis Cardinals utility infielder Daniel Descalso agreed to terms with the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. The two-year contract will be worth at least $3.6 million, per Chris Cotillo of SB Nation. Descalso will earn $1.5 million with the Rockies in 2015 and $2.1 million in 2016, with the potential for $500,000 more via incentives in each year. The two-year pact's overall value could reach as much as $4.6 million. When I saw the news that a team—any...

St. Louis Cardinals rumors: Arizona Diamondbacks reportedly interested in free agent Daniel Descalso

The former Cardinals utility infielder is garnering interest from the former Cardinals manager's new club. Last week, the St. Louis Cardinals non-tendered utility infielder Daniel Descalso. Joe broke down why the decision makes perfect sense for the Cardinals. Even though Descalso's skills aren't high enough to merit the salary he'd have likely commanded via arbitration, we'll always have Octobers past for which to be appreciative. First, a review of the arbitration process and its consequences. The Cardinals had to decide whether or not to tender a guaranteed major-league contracts to...

Why non-tendering Daniel Descalso made perfect sense for the St. Louis Cardinals

In five MLB seasons with the Cardinals, Descalso slashed .243/.313/.341 with the Cardinals. With recent acquisitions and Descalso's inability to play adequate shortstop defense, St. Louis understandably parted ways with the utility man. As reported late last Tuesday and promptly reflected on by Ben, the St. Louis Cardinals non-tendered Daniel Descalso, the infield utility man they drafted in the 3rd round of the 2007 amateur draft. Despite showing promise in 2011, a year in which he appeared in 148 games and slashed .264/.334/.353 over 375 plate appearances, Descalso never really lived up...

Daniel Descalso: An appreciation of the former St. Louis Cardinals infielder

The Daniel Descalso era came to an end in St. Louis this week, so let's look back at the October memories to which the infielder contributed during his time with the Cardinals. The St. Louis Cardinals announced that the club has not tendered infielder Daniel Descalso a contract for the 2015 season prior to Tuesday night's deadline for offering such to arbitration-eligible players. The Cardinals' decision not to pay Descalso around $1.4 million (MLBTR's projected 2015 salary for him) is understandable. Descalso can't hit well, as his .243/.311/.341 (.288 wOBA, 81 wRC+) will attest. He also...

St. Louis Cardinals acquire INF Ty Kelly, the most interesting man in the minors

In a swap of minor leaguers, the Cardinals added more depth to their utility bench by acquiring former UC Davis baseball star Ty Kelly. Of note, Daniel Descalso also played his college ball at UC Davis. Last night, the St. Louis Cardinals acquired Triple-A infielder Ty Kelly (26 years old) from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Double-A right-handed pitcher Sam Gaviglio (24 years old). As usual, Aaron Finkel was on top of things and already provided us with some brief information regarding the utility infielder, but let's see what else we can dig up on him. Minor league...
