News: Descalso signed a two-year contract with the Rockies on Tuesday.
Impact: 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 D.J. LeMahieu struggles or suffers an injury in spring.

News: The Colorado Rockies have agreed to a two-year deal with Descalso.
Impact: The 28-year-old has seen action all over the infield since being selected by St. Louis in the third round of the 2007 draft. He's played 200 games at third base, along with 174 more at second. He's also slid over to shortstop (114 games) and filled in at first (nine games). Descalso hit .242 with 10 RBIs in 104 games with the Cardinals last season.
Rotowire: Dec 2 / 8:28p ET
News: The Cardinals declined to tender Descalso a contract, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reports.
Impact: St. Louis has enough infield depth to make Descalso expendable. He hit .242/.333/.311 with zero home runs and one steal in 184 plate appearances last season, and will have more real life value than fantasy value with whichever team he catches on with for 2015.
