Ian Desmond close to returning

Rockies’ Ian Desmond took batting practice on Tuesday, and appears to be close in returning from DL

Fantasy Impact

Desmond not only took batting practice, he fielded some flyballs in the outfield and throws at first base. The versatile Desmond will likely see time at both first base and the outfield this year, making him a valuable fantasy asset.

Ian Desmond could see time in OF

Ian Desmond is nearing a return, and the Rockies have already laid out that he could see time in the OF as well as first base.

Fantasy Impact

This is due to Mark Reynolds' hot start. Desmond won't lose playing time to Reynolds, but it makes sense for the team to try and keep both in the lineup while Reynolds is hot. This will potentially delay Desmond's first base eligibility for those counting on him for that position.

Ian Desmond (hand) to resume Baseball activities this week

Ian Desmond is scheduled to begin fielding drills and playing catch this week, and could return by the end of April.

Fantasy Impact

Ian Desmond hasn't seen live action since March 12th, but all signs indicate he is progressing nicely. With Mark Reynolds playing so well, the Rockies may take their time with the former All-Star.

Ian Desmond could return mid April

Rockies manager Bud Black said Thursday that surgery on first baseman Ian Desmond's broken left hand was successful, and he could fully recover as early as mid April

Fantasy Impact

With the first game of the 2017 MLB season slated for April 3rd, this injury may only cost Desmond a couple weeks of playing time. Knowing this, you should draft Desmond at, or near, where you were originally planning to.

Preliminary diagnosis on Ian Desmond is a fractured hand

Ian Desmond was hit by a pitch in the 4th inning, and the preliminary diagnosis revealed a left hand fracture.

Fantasy Impact

The 2016 All Star signed a five-year contract worth $70 million in December and was penciled in as Colorado's first baseman opening day. It's unknown how much time Ian Desmond will miss, but we should know more after his visit with a hand specialist Monday.
