Presuming the deal gets done, DeRosa will function as a super utilityman next season in Washington.
He has experience playing all over the infield and is capable of playing either corner outfield position.
DeRosa, 36, posted a rough .279/.351/.302 batting line with zero home runs in 97 plate appearances this past season for the Giants, but he owns a .757 career OPS and is claiming to be beyond some of the wrist problems that have plagued him over the past two years. He’s appeared in only 73 total games since the beginning of the 2010 season.
