Cardinals - Acquired DeRosa
St. Louis Cardinals - Acquired UT Mark DeRosa from the Cleveland Indians for P Chris Perez and a PTBNL.
Soto injured? Ramirez injured and out? Harden actually being bad rather than injured? Ask a certain subset of Cubs fans and you won’t hear any of these reasons given as to why the Cubs are 35-36. Instead, you’ll hear stories about the loss of scrappy Mark DeRosa, who, along with Ryan Theriot, led the Cubs to the playoffs in 2008. That DeRosa goes to the Cardinals has to rub the salt in the wounds a little.
While he didn’t quite do that, DeRosa’s bat and ability to fake 2B provides a great bit of depth for the Cardinals down the stretch. While the Cards aren’t truly desperate at any of the positions DeRosa plays, the organization isn’t really prepared to deal with injuries, either. DeRosa will play somewhere nearly every day.
Perez is a useful reliever, something the Indians desperately need, but he’s by no means irreplaceable, a league-average fastball/slider guy with occasional command issues. No idea who the PTBNL is at this point.
