|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.
|Daniel Descalso in Game 4 starting lineup at shortstop |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(10/27/13) Cardinals infielder Daniel Descalso is in the team's starting lineup for Game 4 of the World Series Sunday. Descalso, who will bat eighth, replaces Pete Kozma, who started Game 3 in the Cardinals' 5-4 win over the Red Sox.
Descalso has been used primarly against right-handers this season, and the Red Sox have righty Clay Buchholz starting Game 4. Descalso hit .250/.300/.384 in 268 at-bats against righties in the regular season.
|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.
