DeRosa, who turns 38 in February, has played a number of positions. He appeared in 48 games for the Washington Nationals in 2012, batting .188 in 101 plate appearances and playing every infield position and both corner outfield positions. In 15 major-league seasons, DeRosa has batted .270 with 93 career home runs. To make room on the roster, the Blue Jays designated right-hander Sam Dyson for assignment.
