MLB Trade Deadline: If Royals Deal David DeJesus, They'll Want 'To Hit A Homerun'

We've already heard reports that the Royals will have a very high asking price for David DeJesus, Ken Rosenthal of backs that up with this snippet from a non-Royals team executive:

One more word on the Royals: An exec who has spoken with them said they would “want to hit a home run” in a deal for outfielder David DeJesus, who is 15th in the AL in OPS.

The Royals hold the upper hand here and that's why they're in a good position. They can deal DeJesus if it means robbing someone blind or they can hang onto him at an affordable price.
