Description: Daniel Descalso will draw the start at shortstop Thursday in Game 2 against the Red Sox.
Insight: Descalso (.188 AVG this postseason) was a spectator for Game 1. He's filling in for Pete Kozma, who had a disastrous game Wednesday in the World Series opener (0-for-3, two fielding errors).

Description: St. Louis second baseman Daniel Descalso slashed three hits Monday in a 6-3 win over Kansas City.
Insight: Descalso hasn't been seeing regular at bats so he isn't really on the fantasy radar. With that said, he has been hitting much better recently. Over his last four starts, Descalso has gone 7-for-13 with six RBI.

Description: Cards infielder Daniel Descalso swatted four hits Wednesday in a 16-inning marathon versus the Diamondbacks.
Insight: Descalso went 4-for-7 in the game to raise his season average to .357. He hit just .227 a year ago so don't expect this hot start to last.

Description: Daniel Descalso loves facing Reds starter Bronson Arroyo. Descalso is hitting .583 against Arroyo.
Insight: This statline probably has a lot to do with why Descalso is in the lineup at third base today instead of David Freese (0-9 lifetime against Arroyo).

Description: Daniel Descalso will be the Cardinals' Opening Day second baseman.
Insight: Descalso (.283, 1 HR, 9 RBIs) beat out Tyler Greene (.267, 2 HRs, 5 RBIs) for the starting second base job but he still has some work to do if he wants to win a spot on any fantasy rosters. Desclaso didn't provide much fantasy help in 2011 (.264, 1 HR, 28 RBIs in 148 games last season).
