Betemit expected to sign with Royals

Source: Betemit expected to sign with Royals 6:34 p.m.
Veteran utility player Wilson Betemit is expected to sign a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals, one major league source told FOXSports.com.

Betemit spent part of the 2009 season with the White Sox, after the Yankees included him in the Nick Swisher trade. But he batted only .200 in 20 games and didn't play in the majors after June 2. Then he went to Class AAA and hit .241.

Betemit, a switch hitter, has primarily played third base in the major leagues but has experience at all four infield positions. The Royals could view him as a low-cost alternative to the versatile Mark Teahen, who was traded to the White Sox last week.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore is familiar with Betemit, 28, from their time together with the Atlanta Braves. Betemit had his best seasons with the Braves in 2005 and 2006.

Source: Royals committed to Gordon at third 11:22 a.m.
Despite acquiring Josh Fields from the White Sox, the Royals are committed to Alex Gordon at third base, a source said today.

Fields, instead, is viewed as a possible left fielder if the Royals find a suitable trade for David DeJesus.

Fields had some experience in left with the White Sox.

DeJesus is a steady hitter who had an off year in 2009. He's set to earn $4.7 million next year, followed by a $6 million option (or $500,000 buyout) in 2011.

He hit .241 in AAA? Yep, sign him up.

On the other hand, I'm glad GMDM seems willing to shake this thing up. As much as I like DeJesus, he's probably a lot more valuable on a contending team. The injuries were annoying, too. Only problem with trading away a productive player like that is that you have to hit on whatever you get back, something I don't entirely trust GMDM to do.

Yep, makes sense.

No reason to keep DeJesus, an actual ML talent, when you have to make sure to keep running Guillen's broke dick ass out to RF. It wouldn't make sense for Fields to replace Jose.

Exactly...plus isn't Dejesus one of those guys we should keep around???

I honestly gave up on the Royals late in the 90's so I'm out of the loop a bit....I still go to games, still root them on, but my investment will return with the franchise's....which will never happen.
