The Royals designed Jose Guillen for assignment meaning in ten days they'll need to trade or release him. Either way, he's not going to be in Royal blue anymore.
The biggest beneficiary of this -- and likely a major part of why the move was made -- is Kila Ka'aihue.
He was called up last week and with Guillen now out of the way will now see significantly more playing time.
More than likely, Ka'aihue will see more time at first base and Billy Butler will turn to DH.
A good move by the Royals.
