Mark DeRosa was placed on the disabled list earlier this week after suffering yet another injury to his surgically-repaired left wrist. At the time of the injury, Giants manager Bruce Bochy conceded that DeRosa would be “out a while,” but there’s also a very real chance that his career could be over.
According to Carl Steward of the San Jose Mercury News, DeRosa underwent an MRI which revealed a partially torn ECU tendon in the wrist. The veteran utility man has undergone two previous procedures to repair the sheath that covers the ECU tendon.
DeRosa is scheduled to travel to Cleveland next week to see the surgeon who performed his most recent surgery last July.
“I’m not willing to concede to the fact that I can’t come back,” DeRosa said. “But look, I’m also cognizant to the fact that I’ve done significant damage to this thing repeatedly over the past two years. So we’ll wait and see.”
DeRosa, 36, has been limited to 34 games since having his first procedure on the wrist in October of 2009.
