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.

  1. I wouldn’t go near a guy with a bad wrist with a ten foot pole. DeRosa hasn’t hit with any authority whatsoever since he injured that wrist 2 years back. No way Pirates, please don’t waste the money on him.

  2. He’d be a better fallback than what we currently possess, by far! That’s if he’s healthy and able to produce as he has in the past.

  3. DeRosa is nothing more than a bench player.. ill take him in a heart beat to come off the bench with his versatility 

  4. I have liked DeRosa since he was a key guy with the Cubs a few years back. Now, he may be finished but I hope not. His versatility and smart, solid play has never hurt any team he’s been with. Get well, Mark!
