The Washington Nationals are about to add some depth with the signing of super-utility player Mark DeRosa, a source tells Fox Sports. The 36-year-old will sign a one-year deal and join recent addition Mike Cameron on the bench, the site reports.

DeRosa has been with the San Francisco Giants for the last two seasons, but has played sparingly due to two surgeries on his left wrist. He only appeared in 73 games for the Giants. In fact, he hasn't appeared in more than 71 games in a season since 2008.

In the 47 games he played in last year, though, he hit .279 with 12 RBIs and one stolen base. After coming off the disabled list on Aug. 5, DeRosa hit .367 in 57 plate appearances.

"It's not like I'm looking for an everyday job, even though [playing] will be my goal going to the yard every day," DeRosa said earlier this offseason, according to Fox. "I just think I can be a difference-maker on a team, not only on the field, but in the clubhouse. I've been on a lot of winning clubs in my 13 years."
