Kansas City Royals Get Bad Break: David DeJesus Out for the Year

It’s really unbelievable. The Kansas City Royals just can’t catch a break. Even when one of their best trade chips is having his best season, something goes wrong.

The Royals got some bad news on Friday when they learned that outfielder David DeJesus will be out for the year.

DeJesus will undergo season-ending surgery on Monday to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb.

DeJesus hurt the thumb when he crashed into the wall at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night.

It’s amazing sometimes. A guy barely crashes into an outfield fence and is out for the year, and a pitcher gets a bullet going 100 mph off his noggin and makes his next start. Funny how that works sometimes.

Well, this just stinks if you are a Royals fan. Not only was DeJesus having his best season at the dish putting up a .318/.384/.443 with five HR’s, but outside of Zack Greinke (if he really is on the market) was the Royals top trade deadline chip.

It was rumored that the Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres, and Tampa Bay Rays all had interest in acquiring the 30-year-old former Rutgers Scarlet Knight.

Now with DeJesus out for the year, the Royals can’t get anything for him when his stock was the highest.

You can’t make this stuff up.
