Rockies sign Descalso

The Rockies have signed infielder Daniel Descalso to a two-year contract, the club announced on Tuesday.

Descalso’s deal includes $3.6 million in guaranteed money over two years and an additional $500,000 each year in performance bonuses, reports ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.

Descalso, 28, became a free agent when he was non-tendered by the Cardinals earlier this month. He had a .242/.333/.311 slash line with St. Louis over 104 games in 2014. He has played all over the infield during five seasons in the Majors, but has seen the most action at third base and second.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Daniel to the Rockies family,” Rockies senior vice president/general manager Jeff Bridich said in a statement released by the team. “We believe his versatile skill set, his experience level and his veteran leadership will be great additions to our Major League process.”

Descalso has appeared in 44 postseason games over his career with the Cardinals, helping the team win the World Series in 2011.

The Rockies’ 40-man roster is now full.
