The San Francisco Giants outfielder Mark DeRosa announced he will miss the remainder of the 2010 season to have season-ending surgery on his left wrist. DeRosa has not played a game in the major leagues since May 9th.

DeRosa played just 26 games in 2010, hitting just one homerun and driving in 26 runs. He is a career .272 hitter in 1000+ career games. In 2009 DeRosa spent the final 68 games with the St. Louis Cardinals playing some third base, along with some outfield. DeRosa hit just .228 with 10 homeruns and 28 homeruns. He started the 2009 season in Cleveland, after spending two seasons with the Chicago Cubs, where he put up his best numbers. DeRosa hit 31 homeruns as a Cub, playing in 298 games.

DeRosa was signed by the Giants in the off-season to a two year – $12 million deal.

The Giants are right in the mix within the National League West Division. Coming into Wednesday’s action San Francisco is just 1.5 games behind the San Diego Padres. The Giants recently won the first of a three game series in Houston. The Giants will send Barry Zito to the mound on Wednesday and Matt Cain on Thursday against the Astros.
