Daniel Descalso can do it all. Technically listed as an infielder, the 27-year-old backup can pitch, pinch hit and play at any base, not to mention shortstop. It almost seems like the Cardinals are looking for ways to put the versatile athlete on the field — and we can see why. The reason is obvious the moment Descalso's grand-slam behind leaves the bench, truly a butt that would look at home on an NFL running back's body. It's the kind of booty that carries its own swagger to the plate, where Descalso sets those hefty hindquarters to balance a powerful swing. Sure, he may lack the consistency or outright talent to be an everyday starter. But in terms of butt talent? Descalso is clearly All-Star material.
