Giants - Signed DeRosa
San Francisco Giants - Signed IF-OF Mark DeRosa to a 2-year, $12 million contract.
DeRosa’s extremely useful, but he *is* at an age when players that are extremely useful have a tendency to suddenly become very less so.
DeRosa’s one of the best Plan B players around, being able to fill-in admirably anywhere but SS, C, and CF and be a plus. He’s not really good enough offensively or defensively to be a solid starter anywhere logical for the Giants, assuming they don’t make the short-sighted move of giving up on Kung Fu Panda at the hot corner. And the big problem for the Giants is most of the Plan As aren’t very good. This is a team that lost their cleanup hitter offseason and even worse, that cleanup hitter was Bengie Molina.
None of that is DeRosa’s fault, of course. He’s a suitable stopgap anywhere, but the Giants have most of a lineup of a suitable stopgaps.
