Weighed down by a league-leading 62.7% ground-ball rate, Desmond failed to take advantage of playing in Coors Field, hitting just seven home runs in 95 games last season. He missed significant time with a fractured hand early and a strained calf in the middle of the season, and just never seemed to get in a groove. Despite his troubles, he still managed to steal 15 bases in limited time, and his .274 batting average certainly didn't hurt you in today's landscape. With dual-eligibility at both first base and outfield, Desmond should be able to bounce back to being a reliable fantasy option if he can get get the ball in the air a bit more next season.

Ian Desmond collects hit, steal in second game off DL

Ian Desmond, who was activated from the DL on Monday, went 1-for-3 with a single, walk and a stolen base during the Rockies' 7-3 victory over the Tigers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Desmond has collected three hits over his first two games since returning from a month-long absence due to a calf injury. The stolen base on Tuesday was his 11th of the season and is a good sign that the calf is fully healed. Desmond will be used at a variety of position over the remainder of the year as he looks to salvage his season for fantasy owners that held onto him.
