According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Florida Marlins are considering a trade for Mark DeRosa. There is no word on the return for the Giants – though if a move is, one could suspect it might happen after May 15th as the Marlins would only owe $4.5 million of DeRosa’s final $6 million owed. Of course, the Giants could always opt to cover a portion of the salary for the cash strapped Fish in exchange for a better prospect.
And just like that, DeRosa has been placed on the DL with wrist cartilage inflammation.
That sound you hear is the wind deflating out of those trade sails.
