Report: Giants close to signing Mark DeRosa

Dec 28, 2009, 7:51 PM EST

UPDATE: DeRosa has passed his physical, according to Mychael Urban of CSNBayArea.com

FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are on the verge of signing Mark DeRosa to a two-year contract.

Earlier this offseason DeRosa was said to be seeking a three-year deal somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 million per season, but he seemingly overestimated the market for a good but not great 35-year-old coming off a significant injury.

For better or worse Giants general manager Brian Sabean has always been willing to spend big on non-elite veterans on the wrong side of 30, so San Francisco is a natural destination. No word yet on the money, but previous reports had the Giants offering DeRosa around $12 million for two years.

    Here is a chance for the Cubs to redeem themselves. What are they waiting for?

    The Cubs would never resign Mark D.since that would be an acknowledgement of letting him go the first time. Get real. And what is Mark thinking? You mean he can’t get $12M for two years from a real contender?
