DeJesus Returns To Royals Clubhouse, Still Seems Unlikely To Return This Year

The last time we heard from Royals OF David DeJesus he was getting surgery on his thumb. Both sides are still hoping that he can return sometime in September but judging by DeJesus' recent words when returning to the Royals clubhouse, that seems unlikely.

“I just want to make sure it’s 100 percent first,” he said, according to the Kansas City Star. “I want to be 100 percent in my mind before going out there. I want to know it’s going to be OK. I won’t go out until then. Hopefully that’s before the season ends, but if it isn’t, that’s the way it is.”

There's no reason for him to come back in the middle of September. Zero reason. The risk far outweighs the benefit and I think DeJesus recognizes that.

I wouldn't look for DeJesus to return this year.
