“I feel like I’m ready,” Descalso said. “The last couple of weeks or so I’ve been getting quite a few at-bats and I feel like I’m playing pretty good defense at third and I’m just going to try to keep it rolling.”
Craig, who has better power potential, was 0 for 6 in a two-game injury rehabilitation assignment from a groin injury at Double-A Springfield. He was batting .313 with a home run and seven RBIs in 11 games before getting hurt on April 16.
Craig said he’s been ready for a few days.
“I want to be on the field, that’s the most important thing, and I don’t really care where it is,” Craig said. “I feel good, ready to go.”
Greene, who started at second base on Monday, was batting .250 with one homer and five RBIs in 28 at-bats.
Punto missed most of the opening month recovering from a sports hernia and at this point is not being considered an everyday player.
“That’s something we have to monitor,” Mozeliak said. “Obviously he’s not a guy we can just throw out there for seven straight days and think we’re going to get away with it.”
