Rockies signing Ian Desmond is baffling

There's little that makes sense about bringing Desmond to Denver. Colorado gave up a valuable draft pick for a player who doesn't fill a need.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Coors helps greatly alleviate concerns that Ian Desmond's 2016 fantasy numbers will regress, so while he was my No. 108 overall player and OF31 as a free agent, he's now my No. 60 overall and OF19 as a Rockie. Until the team makes other moves, though, I'd wonder: How high in the order does he hit? He might drop a few rankings spots if the Rockies are already done with their lineup.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Ian Desmond is expected to play 1B for the Rockies, a position he hasn't played in the minors or majors. He moved from SS to OF last season.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

The best indication that Edwin Encarnacion isn't getting the offers he's looking for: Agent Paul Kinzer telling teams there's no hurry to get him signed. Indians, Rockies interested. But Red Sox appear "very unlikely."
