Kansas City Royals Trade Infielder Jamie Romak To St. Louis Cardinals For Cash Considerations

The Kansas City Royals made a minor move today, trading AAA Omaha infielder Jamie Romak to the St. Louis Cardinals for cash considerations, as first reported by Bob Dutton. The Royals simply had too many similar infielders in the system with no future plans or use of Romak. As a former third round pick of the Atlanta Braves, it was the sort of move that Dayton Moore made early in his GM career with the Royals, picking up prospects and familiar players from his former team.

Romak is only 26 despite nearly a decade of minor league experience, having started his professional career at age 17 in 2003. While he hit 23 home runs for AA Northwest Arkansas last season, this was his first year in AAA with any team and he was getting shelled thus far in Omaha with a batting average of .147.
