Cardinals | Daniel Descalso playing SS

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Daniel Descalso is starting for the second straight day at shortstop with SS Pete Kozma being benched so that he can work on his swing. Descalso has hit .355 in his last 30 games and had three hits Thursday, July 4. However, manager Mike Matheny was careful to say that there isn't a platoon situation in the works at shortstop. SS Ryan Jackson is batting .306 with a .384 on-base percentage at Triple-A Memphis, but he isn't an option for the team's bench at this moment.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards haven't given up on Kozma just yet, so you should look to retain him in cavernous mixed leagues. Descalso deserves some short-term attention in NL-only leagues.
