Farewell, Mark DeRosa

The San Francisco Giants have reached a preliminary agreement with infielder Mark DeRosa on a two-year contract. Giants spokesman Jim Moorehead said the 34-year-old passed a physical Monday and the team planned to formally announce his deal today.
One of general manager Brian Sabean’s top priorities this offseason was upgrading the Giants’ offense — and acquiring DeRosa seemingly is a significant step in that direction.
DeRosa played for Cleveland and St. Louis this year. He hit .250 with 23 homers and drove in 78 runs.
Meanwhile, San Francisco also is working to finalize a contract to bring back infielder Juan Uribe, 30. Uribe hit .289 with 16 homers and 55 RBI this year.
