Royals manager Ned Yost was asked about the acquisition of Wilson Betemit from the Rangers.

“If I get into a position where I need to double switch in the bottom half of the order to buy some time for the pitcher not to hit, (Betemit) … gives us more options in those situations,” Yost said. “He’s the perfect fit for us at this time.”
