We posted an item from MLB Trade Rumors that suggested the Royals were likely to hang onto OF David DeJesus as the MLB trade deadline looms.
On Thursday, Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston.com seemed to agree with that.
The Rays could be the front-runners, but the Red Sox source indicated Boston has strong interest in Werth, along with Royals outfielder David DeJesus. A league source, however, believes DeJesus will stay in Kansas City.
As we've said before, his contract makes him fit nicely in Kansas City. Unless the Royals are blown away, they'll be hanging onto DeJesus (but it's also possible someone does blow them away).
