The Washington Nationals are reportedly interested in signing free agent Mark DeRosa, according to MLB.com writer Bill Ladson.
DeRosa, 36, was a bust in his two years with the Giants. After being signed to a two-year, $12 million contract in 2010, the oft-injured utility man played in just 73 games, due to a series of problems with his wrist. DeRosa batted .194/.279/.258 with 1 HR and 10 RBI in 2010 and .279/.351/.302 with 0 HR and 12 RBI in 2011. To say his power has been sapped due to the wrist injury would be an understatement.
The Nats, are hoping DeRosa can provide insurance behind regular first baseman Chris Marrero, who injured himself in winter ball. Good luck with that.
