|Cardinals heading to arbitration with three |

|Daniel Descalso returns to short for Game 6 |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(10/30/13) The Cardinals have decided to go with Daniel Descalso at short for Game 6.
Descalso was in the lineup for Game 4, but was replaced by Pete Kozma for Game 5. Descalso has gone hitless in six at-bats during the World Series. He'll hit ninth against Red Sox pitcher John Lackey.
|With all the time he spent at shortstop in 2013, Daniel Descalso solidified his role as the go-to reserve around the infield. Well, at least the left side. Newly signed Mark Ellis figures to spell rookie Kolten Wong at second base, and Allen Craig will probably shift from right field to man first base as needed. But Descalso could handle either spot in a pinch, and "in a pinch" is often enough for him to get 300 at-bats for a fourth straight season. He doesn't excel in any facet offensively, but players with his versatility who get even semi-regular at-bats usually end up mattering in NL-only leagues, particularly ones that use a standard Rotisserie lineup. You wouldn't want to invest much in Descalso, obviously, but you shouldn't dismiss him either.
