DeRosa reinstated from 60-day DL

The San Francisco Giants reinstated infielder Mark DeRosa from

the 60-day disabled list before Thursday night’s series opener

against the Philadelphia Phillies.

DeRosa, hampered by a left wrist strain, has been limited to 18

games this season. It’s the same wrist he had surgically

repaired.

He is hitting .162 with no homers and three RBIs. He is a career

.271 hitter with 93 home runs.

Brandon Belt was optioned to Triple-A Fresno to make room for

DeRosa on the 25-man roster. Belt was 5 of 21 with a homer and

three RBIs in his latest stint with the Giants.
