According to MLB.com's official Twitter account, the Cardinals have acquired Mark DeRosa for RHP Chris Perez and a player to be named later.
DeRosa was curiously held out of Saturday's lineup and was seen on the phone for a long period of time just before first pitch. The PTBNL will be crucial, but, as it stands, it seems the Indians got the short end of this deal. Perez is a top relief prospect, but DeRosa is one of the more versatile position players in the game and fits very well into the Cardinals' system. Plus, his bat isn't too shabby. The 34-year-old was hitting .270/.342/.457 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI in 278 at-bats for the Indians. Jun. 27 - 10:59 pm et
