Royals manager Ned Yost was asked about the acquisition of Wilson Betemit from the Rangers.â†µ
â€œIf 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) â€¦ gives us more options in those situations,â€ Yost said. â€œHeâ€™s the perfect fit for us at this time.â€â†µ
He’s the “perfect fit” because he fits just about anywhere on the infield. He’ll also be an option in left field.â†µ
Sometimes it’s not doing one thing great but doing a lot of things OK.
