"Everything is going well," DeRosa said. "It was nice. I'm starting to do baseball activities, which is nice. I never had this injury before. I'm trying to follow what they are telling me to do. I'm pushing it a little more each day. I'm dying to get back."
Manager Davey Johnson is hoping that DeRosa will be playing with the team within a week to 10 days. Before he is activated from the disabled list, DeRosa will go to Florida to get some at-bats.
Despite his absence as a healthy player, DeRosa has been providing valuable leadership to the younger players like Tyler Moore, Danny Espinosa and Ian Desmond.
