Pirates Checked on Mark DeRosa
The Pittsburgh Pirates were one of four teams who spoke with Mark DeRosa’s surgeon, according to Ken Rosenthal. DeRosa has been sidelined for a good amount of time the last two years with a left wrist injury, which required two surgeries. The Nationals, Rangers, and Indians have also spoken to DeRosa’s surgeon, and the Giants have expressed interest, according to Rosenthal. DeRosa hit for a .367/.439/.388 line in 57 plate appearances after coming off the disabled list on August 5th last year.
