Daniel Descalso homers in win Tuesday

Daniel Descalso went 1-for-5 with a leadoff home run in the Cubs' 6-5 win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The homer was Descalso's second on the year, and he now has a .263/.349/.408 triple slash in 86 PA. He's a part-time player with Chicago and has little fantasy value for that reason.

Daniel Descalso continues hot hitting with homer, three hits Friday

Daniel Descalso went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in the Cubs' 13-10 loss to the Brewers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Descalso has been on fire to begin the season, going 8-for-16 with one walk and three strikeouts. Descalso could earn himself some additional playing time if he continues to hit, as the Cubs could easily play him at second base against right-handed pitching and move Ben Zobrist to the outfield. He posted a 111 wRC+ in 423 PA for Arizona last season, and could be valuable in NL-only leagues if the Cubs play him more often.

Daniel Descalso agrees to deal with Chicago Cubs

Veteran utility infielder Daniel Descalso has agreed to a two-year deal with the Chicago Cubs with a club option for 2021, the team announced on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

Descalso will be more valuable to the Cubs than he will be to fantasy owners, but his positional eligibility might come in handy as a streaming option in deeper leagues that emphasize getting on base. In 2018, he slashed .238 / .353 / .436 with 13 home runs, 57 RBIs, 54 runs scored, and 64 walks.

Daniel Descalso hits 13th home run

Daniel Descalso finished Sunday's game 1-for-3 at the plate with a two-run home run and a walk as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Impact

Descalso has been splitting time with Ketel Marte at second base, and Marte has been getting most of the work in the second half of the season. That lack of playing time hurts Descalso's fantasy potential, and because of that he should not be owned in any fantasy format.

Daniel Descalso drives in two runs Friday

Daniel Descalso went 1-for-4 on Friday with a two-run single.

Fantasy Impact

Overall on the season Descalso has a .250/.365/.461 slash line with 12 HR, 48 R, and 54 RBI, but he has not been getting regular playing time recently as teammate Ketel Marte has been drawing more starts at the keystone. While he is trying to make the most out of his reduced role, it doesn't seem to be enough to maintain fantasy relevance.
