SAN FRANCISCO -- The official word from the Giants is that Mark DeRosa has been diagnosed with a partial tear of the ECU tendon, which is a separate issue from the tendon sheath that has been operated on twice.

His status was revealed by manager Bruce Bochy in a dugout interview prior to the Giants series opener with the A's.

DeRosa injured his wrist in Wednesday's game with the Dodgers. It is unclear at this point what exactly happened, but DeRosa cocked his bat as a Clayton Kershaw pitch was delivered and immediately dropped his bat and started holding his hand, his face a mask of obvious, intense pain.
