Fangraphs' take on the DeRosa trade...

+

courtesy of erik. Personally, I feel it's pretty difficult to evaluate the trade without much of a feel for who the ptbnl might be. If it's Todd, I'd say it's broadly a slightly disappointing trade for us. If it's Samuel, I'd say it's kinda OK, you can usually pick up a live relief-projectable arm in the sandwich rounds, which is what we should get as compensation for DeRo at the end of the year. If it's anything less than Samuel (say, a lower-level arm or a guy with a limited ceiling like David Kopp or maybe Adam Ottavino), I'd say it's a win for us. I'd also like to point out that I *think* the statement in the comments (that the PTBNL is "at least 2 years from the majors") is actually INCORRECT and was a mis-interpretation of a quote that came up somewhere on FR. It could still very well be someone in AA/AAA, as far as I know...
