A few months ago and this question was a no-brainer. Of course David DeJesus would be back with the Kansas City Royals in 2011.
Then there were some trade rumors. DeJesus was in the midst of perhaps his best year as a professional which means there were other teams interested. The weeks leading up to the MLB trade deadline were filled with all sorts of rumors, reports and suggestions that DeJesus could be going here or there.
And then he got hurt, ending his season.
That was devastating enough but it also brought up the question of whether he would return to the Royals.
It seems incredibly unlikely that the Royals would just part ways with him, especially as GM Dayton Moore sings his praises to the Kansas City Star.
