The Royals, lacking payroll flexibility, do not expect to be active in free agency. Outfielder Scott Podsednik, however, is one player in whom the Royals are showing interest.
Podsednik, who batted .303-.353-.412 and stole 30 bases for the White Sox last season, could fit with the Royals regardless of whether they trade DeJesus. The White Sox remain in the mix for Podsednik as well.
Will Dayton Moore will give him a multi-year deal?
UPDATE: Rooyals officials confirm it.
