Royals Acquire Ryan Freel

The Royals acquired utilityman Ryan Freel and cash from the Cubs for a player to be named later, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.

The Cubs designated Freel for assignment Thursday after a disappointing 14-game tenure with the club. They traded Joey Gathright for Freel two months ago.

i've always liked the guy. very versatile. can play 2b,3b, & of. the royals have looked shaky in the field all year so i'd like him at 2b or cf (not a mitch maier fan), but i haven't really seen freel this season enough to know what he's got left in his legs

He increases team speed, and if healthy...can also raise the team's batting average and lower the defensive error totals. He's better than a poke in the eye.
