Royals Manager Says Wilson Betemit Can Help Out In Multiple Ways

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.”


He’s the “perfect fit” because he fits just about anywhere on the infield. He’ll also be an option in left field.


Sometimes it’s not doing one thing great but doing a lot of things OK.
