The Giants have interest in Royals outfielder David DeJesus, two major league sources said, but it doesn't appear that the clubs are engaged in serious talks.

DeJesus would be a good fit for a number of contenders, including the Padres, Red Sox and Braves.

In any case, San Francisco may have a hard time meeting Kansas City's price. DeJesus has an affordable $6 million club option for next year, so the Royals don't have a pressing need to move him. A left-handed batter, DeJesus is hitting .328 this season.

San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy has used Pat Burrell and Aubrey Huff in the outfield corners recently; DeJesus would be a defensive upgrade over either.

Burrell has performed well since joining the Giants, but the team might still be one bat short. Aaron Rowand is hitting just .220, and Mark DeRosa is hurt.

If Andres Torres continues to shine as Rowand's short-term replacement, the Giants would have less incentive to part with a prospect for DeJesus.

DeJesus has experience at all three outfield positions, which increases his trade value.http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/MLB-latest-news-from-June-052910

Yes, I would like to get DeJesus, he'd be really nice add to play outfield and also a very solid left-handed hitter.

Dejesus is such a plainly underrated player.

I switched way to quick from NFL forum to MLB forum and thought this was about the New York Giants :facepalm: I flipped out

San Francisco should go for it, Rowand looks finished

I'd really like the Red Sox to make a serious run at him, given our mess of an OF.
