Rockies' Ian Desmond: On bench for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Desmond will be given a breather in the season finale after he played the hero in Colorado's 3-2 win Saturday. The veteran notched his fourth triple and reached 20 home runs for the third time in four seasons in the victory, but his .255/.310/.479 slash line is still fairly underwhelming for a player making $15 million. Desmond still has one year remaining on his contract beyond this season along with a $15 million club option ($2 million buyout) for 2022.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Starts comeback with solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a triple in Saturday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Brewers.

After riding pine for three straight games, Desmond provided a multi-hit effort. He wasn't able to score after a leadoff triple in the sixth inning, but he made sure to get the Rockies on the board with the solo shot off Brewers reliever Drew Pomeranz in the eighth. Desmond secured his sixth 20-homer campaign in 11 seasons with the blast. The 34-year-old has added 65 RBI, 64 runs scored and four triples in 139 games this year.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Belts 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in an extra-innings victory over the Giants on Tuesday.

Desmond cranked a 419-foot shot to center field in the fourth inning before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth frame of the 16-inning affair. The 34-year-old continues to be a decent source of homers (19) and RBI (64) but has experienced a sharp decline in the stolen base department this season, swiping only three bags after reaching double digits in steals during each of the previous nine campaigns.
