DeRosa ---> Giants

6:17pm: The Giants and Mark DeRosa are in agreement on a two-year deal believed to be worth $12MM, tweets SI's Jon Heyman.



1. The 3B and LF markets get a little thinner.

2. Hopefully this doesn't raise Beltre's price too much :-o

3. Pablito to 1B, most likely

4. Good to see the Giants still adding people for their peak years ;-7 ;-7

Seems like an awful lot for a 35 year old coming back from a wrist injury.

So does that make DeRosa the Giants de facto number 4 hitter ?

If that is the case, I would expect his value to rise significantly.

I think DeRosa's projected numbers of 68r and 74rbi's won't change much but At&t has huge gaps and HR are harder to come by. I think he gets more XB hits while his HR decrease by about 5. So about 15 roughly speaking. Average should be stable also. Still a last resort 3Bmen in fantasy leagues.

I would agree he would have to bat 4th. I haven't looked to close at the SF lineup but off the top of my head I don't think they have anyone else to bat behind Pablo.

Pablo Sandoval... I'd bat DeRosa 2nd probably.

I don't hate the deal as long as they put DeRosa in LF which assures Velez isn't a starter. It does give us quite a bit of flexibility to work with the rest of the roster (can still sign or trade for a LF/1B/3B) and he can fill in at 2B if/when Freddy Sanchez gets injured.

You'd also bat Werth leadoff :-b ;-)

I assumed Pablo bats 3rd as he's their best hitter by a mile.
