    Description: The Blue Jays have decided to keep third baseman Mark DeRosa. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports
    Insight: DeRosa was claimed off waivers but instead of facilitating a trade the Jays are just going to hold onto him. A part-time player, DeRosa is hitting .231 this season with 7 HR and 29 RBI.
     
    5/14/2013 11:07:00 AM
    Description: Toronto infielder Mark DeRosa could see his name in the lineup on Tuesday due to a favorable history versus Giants left-hander Barry Zito.
    Insight: DeRosa has hit three home runs in 28 at-bats against Zito. Starting third baseman Brett Lawrie continues to struggle with the bat and that could lead to DeRosa getting the rare start.
     
    5/26/2011 10:55:00 AM
    Description: Mark DeRosa has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list, as he deals with a wrist injury. SOURCE: San Francisco Giants on Twitter
    Insight: He is a great contributor when healthy, but he will now be out for a while because of his wrist injury. With this news, he is not worth holding onto in most fantasy leagues.
     
    8/27/2010 10:49:00 AM
    Description: Mark DeRosa will begin swinging a bat sometime in September as he recovers from wrist surgery. SOURCE: San Francisco Chronicle
    Insight: He is a great player to have because he can play anywhere, but he has been out for the season since July. If he recovers from the surgery nicely, he should be a great addition next season to any fantasy owners.
     
    5/7/2010 9:44:00 AM
    Description: DeRosa went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored on Thursday against the Marlins.

    Insight: After being hitless in his first 15 at bats as Cardinal, DeRosa has four hits in his last eight at bats. I wouldn't put too much stock in his nice night on Tuesday, but he isn't completely done either. (SportsBuff.com)
     
    Steady7/19/2009 10:31:00 AM
    Description: DeRosa was activated from the DL and returned to the Cardinal lineup on Saturday. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.
    Insight: The injury may hamper DeRosa for the rest of the season. If I had him, I'd leave him on the DL (if I could) until he starts getting some hits. Wrist injuries can be problematic for power hitters. (SportsBuff.com)
     
    Steady7/17/2009 10:58:00 AM

    Steady6/30/2009 9:40:00 AM
    Description: DeRosa hit second, one spot ahead of Albert Pujols, on Monday. He went 0-for-4.

    Steady6/28/2009 9:29:00 AM
    Description: DeRosa was traded to the Cardinals. Cardinals GM John Mozeliak told ESPN that DeRosa would primarily play third base.
