Don't look now, but Mark DeRosa...

Does this guy actually bear some serious observation?

Second night in a row with a homer and he has lots of positions of eligibility (2B, 3B, SS). Might want to see how this develops...

In deep/only leagues, I'd say he's worth a look.

Well, I was talking about a standard 12 team 5x5, but when I say look, I don't mean a roster spot, yet. I was thinking though that at the SS position, he could provide some nice power. I'm using Everett right now with Reyes on the DL, and after having dropped Kearns for a MR, I could pretty easily reconcile taking DeRosa with that roster spot instead, if he stays hot.

DeRo

I got Nomar out right now and Bobby Crosby has been on the shelf as well. I picked up DeRosa to fill in at SS and so far he's delivered 2 HRs since I picked him up last Wed. I love this guy. I know he won't last but if you're in a deep league with horrible options at SS and 2B, give DeRosa a chance. I did and he's paying some nice dividends.

As a huge Braves fan, I'd say this is the perfect time to sell high if you're in an NL-only league. With Chipper out he's hitting at the top of the lineup. He also hit there while Furcal was out. Once both return, he'll return to the #8 spot and he'll have a hard time giving you more value than what you could get in return for him now. I'm glad he got those HRs for me though. Obviously as a Braves fan, I hope I'm wrong.

If you've got a roster spot open, De Rosa is a good grab. With his eligibility, you can plug him into your roster when others have an off day. He probably won't be worth keeping on your roster all year, but, then, sometimes it's nice having that one roster spot which you use to rotate in the hot guy.

If you have a guy like Durham at 2B, or if you're one of those "waiting for Reyes to qualify" guys, then you could do a lot worse than having a starting 2B for the Braves in your lineup.
