DeRosa on DL again, Giants recall Burriss

The San Francisco Giants placed third baseman Mark DeRosa on the

15-day disabled list Thursday because of a strained left wrist and

recalled infielder Emmanuel Burris from Triple-A Fresno.

DeRosa will be making his second trip to the DL this season. He

was injured in the fourth inning of the Giants’ 8-5 win on

Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium, when he checked his swing on a

pitch in the dirt from Clayton Kershaw. Mike Fontenot finished the

at-bat and drew a bases-loaded walk after inheriting a 2-2


DeRosa is batting .162 in 37 games with three RBIs and is

hitless in his last 23 at-bats – a drought that began before he

went on the DL on April 28 because of left wrist inflammation. He

underwent surgery on the wrist back on July 1.
