In light of the injury to Carlos Delgado this may be a good possibility for general manager Omar Minaya to investigate. Other possibilities that Minaya is reportedly interested in, such as Nick Johnson and Aubrey Huff, may cause the Mets a problem once Delgado returns because the team would have to find spots to play them. DeRosa, while probably not quite as productive as some of the other possibilities, can play just about anywhere on the field so his long term value over the course of the season is better.
I’m not sure if this is the solution but it’s definitely worth thinking about.
