Profile: The 2016-2017 free agent market was chock full of first basemen and should-be first basemen. Any team in want of a solution had more options than they could possibly roster. There was no need to get creative. You see where I'm going with this, right? Desmond was clearly one of the guys who should have signed as an outfielder. Or a third baseman. Or second baseman. But first base? That's... curious. One might describe it as a bold strategy. We'll see if it pays off. If you squint, you can catch a glimmer of the Rockies' plan. Every team wants an everyday utility fielder. Sometime during Desmond's contract, a key fielder will be hurt, traded, or leave via free agency. That's when the Rockies activate their sleeper utility agent. The depth he provides could ultimately prove valuable, it's just baffling that he'll be plugged into first base in the interim. As for Desmond the player, you know the story. He partially rebounded in 2016, but he's also been flat-out bad over the majority of the last two seasons. He's kind of like an athletic, right-handed Jay Bruce. Moving to Coors Field could help to mitigate his streaky tendencies, and he should still be a more-than-useful fantasy option. (Brad Johnson)

The Quick Opinion: After settling for a pillow contract in 2016, Desmond signed the ultimate cushy deal for 2017 and beyond - five-years and $70 million to call Coors Field home. What a treat for the future super utility guy and his fantasy owners.
