Dont forget Thurston making yet another jackass decision on the bases when he should've been DFA'd the moment the trade went through.
As to the fantasy impact -- I wouldn't use my waiver priority on him just yet. DeRosa is still very streaky and extremely susceptible to RH pitching. He's a great start against lefties, especially soft tossers, but power righties will give him fits and I just don't see how you can use a #1 priority on that.
I'd sit on it and see if Holliday comes over. The Brewers and Cubs are likely to make a move, the Mets, Braves and Phils could as well. Then there are surprise callups like Bumgarner and Alvarez (especially for keeper leaguers).
I wouldn't burn the priority on a platoon player.
