When the Royals traded Jose Guillen to the Giants he had $3.39 million remaining on his salary. As the rumor had it around the trade deadline, the Royals would pick up a significant portion of his salary to trade him.
As it turns out, the Giants will pay just $250,000 for Guillen's services the rest of the way.
The Royals will get a player to be named later, which will be a low-to-mid-level prospect.
Guillen will arrive in San Francisco late Friday night.
