Kansas City Royals outfielder David DeJesus was one of the hottest names on the rumor sheets over the last several weeks.

There were at least five teams that were in the chase to land him, but according to several beat writers, the Royals were asking far too much for teams to give up.

Well, it seems like the Royals are regretting that now as DeJesus will land on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained thumb, which will keep him out past the non-waiver trade deadline next Saturday.

Not to say that a waiver wire deal can’t be completed once he’s healthy and ready to return to the team, but he’s going to need to prove that he can be 100 percent healthy before teams jump back in the race.

One thing is for sure at this point: The Royals won’t get anywhere near what they had been demanding after DeJesus does return from his disabled list stint.

Next to the Royals outfielder, there are several rumors to update, so let’s get to them.
