We have some bad news for the San Francisco Giants, as they have placed infielder Mark DeRosa on the disabled list thanks to a left wrist soreness. On the other hand, they have activated Emmanuel Burriss who is ready for the bullpen. Odds.
DeRosa took a flight to Cleveland to be checked by Dr. Thomas Graham, a hand specialist who executed surgery on that same wrist last summer. Graham found severe swelling in the cartilage surrounding the wrist, but he also stated that fortunately DeRosa won’t need surgical treatment.
“I’m relieved I won’t need more surgery, but I’m kind of tired of every day being a flip of the coin,” DeRosa said. “One day it will feel fine; the next day it won’t. I’m looking for a little more reliability.” Scores.
DeRosa is having a mediocre year this season going 6-for-18 (.333) in 11 games. He took part in only 26 games last season after signing a two-year, $12 million agreement with the Californian team.
Burriss, on the other hand, was hitting .344 with three RBIs and 15 stolen bases in 16 games with Triple-A Fresno, a minor league team. A former first-round pick, Burriss has appeared in 163 games over three seasons with the Giants. He batted .264 with a home run, 31 RBIs and 24 steals. Las Vegas odds.
The Giants hope DeRosa can be back as soon as possible to continue the season as one of their main infielders.
