DeRosa injured wrist -- again · Notes, Quotes · Roster Report

Giants fans might never see much of Mark DeRosa, who hasn't played regularly in the majors since 2009, just before he signed a two-year, $12 million contract with San Francisco.

The so-called super utility man re-injured his troubled left wrist in a bizarre way. As he was about swing at a pitch in Wednesday night's 8-5 win over the Dodgers, he stepped out of the box in severe pain.

He walked off the field and tossed his helmet in the dugout. It was obviously a frustrating moment for DeRosa, who rehabbed for a long time to return to the field. Now he's likely heading back to the disabled list, his twice-repaired wrist too much of a bother.

DeRosa missed most of last season, and Wednesday marked just his 44th game as a Giant since signing the contract.

Manager Bruce Bochy wanted to give DeRosa an extended look at third base with Pablo Sandoval on the DL, but DeRosa never found his swing and is hitting .162. Miguel Tejada spelled DeRosa at third, and he could be the long-term answer, though there's talk that Aubrey Huff could make the move across the infield.

In late June, Sandoval could come off the DL and return to third.
