Ian Desmond put on 10-day DL

Fantasy Impact

Ian Desmond re-injures calf

Ian Desmond was removed from Tuesday's game after re-injuring his calf.

Fantasy Impact

A similar injury required a trip to the disabled list, so the same could be in store for Desmond. It's been a rough first season in Colorado for the veteran. When healthy he's been a productive fantasy player with a .285 average, five homers, and 10 stolen bases.

Ian Desmond is not in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Looks like a routine day off for Desmond. Expect him back in the lineup tomorrow.

Ian Desmond batting .318 since coming off the DL

Ian Desmond went 1-for-5 with a RBI during the Rockies' 13-3 victory over the Pirates on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Since being activated off the DL on July 16, Desmond is batting .318 with a pair of doubles and six RBIs over seven games. Desmond and the Rockies will be on the road for six games this week including a weekend series against Desmond's former team the Nationals. Surprisingly, Desmond has produced better numbers on the road than at Coors Field this season.

Ian Desmond returns from DL and drives in two runs Sunday

Ian Desmond was activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Sunday's game against the New York Mets. He went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two RBIs, and a run scored in the 13-4 victory.

Fantasy Impact

Desmond had been sidelined for pretty much all of July, as he has battled some injuries and inconsistency this season. He has a high ceiling for the second half and offers a combination of power and speed that can help fantasy owners down the stretch. He will need to prove that he can stay healthy and that he can rediscover his power stroke, which has been somewhat lacking in 2017.
