Quick Hits: DeRosa, Martinez, Cubs, Peavy

Eli GreenspanSenior Analyst IMay 20, 2009

Quick Hits:

  • Indians third baseman Mark DeRosa has been linked to a couple teams in the past couple days. There is some speculation that DeRosa could go to the Mets. However, the Mets are playing awful defense and DeRosa isn't the best fielder. He is versatile, but he isn't spectacular at any position.
  • Indians first baseman/catcher Victor Martinez could be made available also, and he would probably draw a lot of interest. He has a 7.2 millon dollar contract, and is hitting .401 so far this season. The Mets could also take a look at him.
  • It was April of 2007 when the Cubs were put on the market and it looks like the sale will be finalized sometime in July. Just in time for a big blockbuster deal, perhaps. 
  • Stay tuned for Part III of my exclusive interview with Jake Peavy.
