DeRosa to start rehab assignment Monday

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants announced after Sunday's game that infielder/outfielder Mark DeRosa will begin a rehab assignment with Class A Advanced San Jose on Monday.

DeRosa, 35, has been sidelined since May 9 with a left wrist injury and said earlier this week his ultimate goal is to join the Giants in Pittsburgh, where they begin a two-city trip next Friday.

In 26 games this season, DeRosa is hitting .194 with one home run and 10 RBIs.
