DANIEL DESCALSO RUMORS

Descalso gets two-year, $3.6M deal with Rockies

DENVER -- The first big league signing of Jeff Bridich's tenure as general manager of the Colorado Rockies was far more sensible than splashy. The Rockies needed a versatile infielder, and so they added Daniel Descalso with a $3.6 million, two-year contract Tuesday. It appears to be a sound investment for a team that's trying to rebound from a 96-loss season, especially after Colorado...
