3/16:Rockies first baseman and big offseason signee Ian Desmond was the victim of a hit by pitch in a mid-March Spring Training game, which turned out to cause a fracture in his left hand. While many freaked out, it turns out that his timeline is on the optimistic side of things. Even after having a metal plate inserted under his skin and having his hand wrapped up in a thick cast, Desmond is currently being given a late-April return date. While this was the hope before the surgery, it's another thing entirely to hear this post-surgery. While it would be wise to leave some wiggle room for setbacks in your expectations, Desmond's stock gets a bit of a bump back up as he makes for a nice stash. He could still challenge his 2016 numbers with Coors Field at his back.--Nick Mariano - RotoBaller
