Royals Pushing To Trade Jose Guillen


The Royals are "really pushing to move Jose Guillen," tweets ESPN's Buster Olney, and "continue to tell teams they will eat a lot of dollars." Guillen, the team's designated hitter, has $6.39MM remaining on his contract. The 34-year-old Guillen sports a .282/.344/.470 line on the season, with strong April and June work sandwiching a rough May. Aside from his time at DH, he's tallied 103 innings in right field. Which contenders could use a potential offensive boost? An American League club makes the most sense. The White Sox and Rays don't have much at DH. The Yankees are another consideration. The Padres and Giants could be suitors, if they'd dare let Guillen play the outfield full-time again.
