Descalso signed a two-year contract with the Rockies on Tuesday.
Although he was healthy all year, Descalso logged just 184 plate appearances with St. Louis in 2014 while serving in a utility role. He's just a .243/.313/.341 career hitter at the major league level, with 10 homers and 16 steals in 529 games, but Descalso can play all around the infield and is an upgrade over Charlie Culberson. The 28-year-old Descalso may even work into a starting role at second if DJ LeMahieu struggles or suffers an injury in the spring.
