NRI granted to DeRosa

Texas signed infielder MARK DEROSA to a minor-league contract with an invite to Spring Training.

DeRosa will fight Manny Alexander, Marshall McDougall, Esteban German, and probably some others for the backup infielder spot. DeRosa has the advantage of hitting better than Alexander (not a rare asset, to be sure) and can play some outfield in a pinch. He has a pretty good chance to make the team.
