In Case You Were Hoping for Mark DeRosa

Chicago Cubs

You can stop hoping. And you probably shouldn’t have been hoping in the first place; not because Mark DeRosa is not a fine player, but instead because the Cubs haven’t been meaningfully connected to a Mark DeRosa rumor since they dealt him to the Cleveland Indians last year.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the San Francisco Giants have reached a preliminary agreement with veteran infielder Mark DeRosa on a two-year contract.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not been finalized. According to’s Jon Heyman, it’s believed to be two year deal with $12 million for the ex-Cub. Chicago Breaking Sports.

DeRosa is expected to become the full-time third baseman for the Giants. As a utility player, there isn’t a better one in the game than Mark DeRosa. As a full-time third baseman, he’s probably going to look a bit overmatched, as he did in St. Louis.
