Brewers interested in Cleveland's DeRosa; waiting for market to open up
The Brewers said they were interested in Cleveland's Mark DeRosa, before the St. Louis Cardinals traded for him on Saturday.
But assistant general manager Gord Ash said the Indians did not believe the Brewers had the type of players they were looking for.
The Cardinals gave up reliever Chris Perez and a player to be named later.
Ash said the Redbirds wanted DeRosa for the same reason the Brewers did because he can play most positions in the outfield and infield.
