Mark DeRosa’s Interesting 2014 Baseball Card

Topps Series 1 always has some “misprints” usually due to players changing teams late. For example, this year’s Chris Young’s card has him in an Athletics uniform, something that will be changed in the Update and Highlight’s series at the end of the year. With the word of DeRosa’s retirement, rather than pulling his card and changing the whole lineup, they just changed...

Mark DeRosa still uncertain of 2014 plans

Source: Jonathan Moore/Getty Images North America The Toronto Blue Jays  hold a $750,000 option on infielder Mark DeRosa for 2014. While the Blue Jays are expected to pick up the option it all appears depended on whether or not the 38-year-old wants to return. “To be honest with you, this season has been fun, it’s been a grind. … But I really just want to get away for a minute...

Mark DeRosa Avoids Flying Mitt, Makes Great Catch

In the eighth inning of the Blue Jays and Orioles game Friday, Mark DeRosa caught a limping pop-up that trailed foul just inside the front row seats along the 3rd-baseline.  Upon retrieval of the foul pop-up off the bat of wunderkind Matt Wieters, DeRosa slips right as he gets to the wall, avoids several sets of fan hands, and then somehow still manages to make the catch.  The...

Giants have expressed interest in re-signing Mark DeRosa

Just a quick note — via Ken Rosenthal, the Giants have expressed interest in bringing back Mark DeRosa. There isn’t much to expect from him at this point. Projections are hardly a be-all and end-all, but I think the ZiPS projection for DeRosa in 2012 tells the whole story: .244/.300/.277. He’ll probably get a minor-league contract with an invite to Spring Training, and I wouldn’t...

VIDEO: Mark DeRosa addresses Penn football players

Before he was a Major League Baseball player, DeRosa was a star quarterback at the University of Pennsylvania.
