Everyone is interested in David DeJesus

Jun 28, 2010, 5:44 PM EDT

With the usual “Jim Bowden is very often wrong about such matters” disclaimer, I’ll pass along his word that the Braves, Reds and Red Sox are all talking to the Royals about David DeJesus.

DeJesus, who has emerged as the prize position player at this year’s deadline — at least prized position player who is quite likely to actually be moved — is worth the fuss. He’s hitting .331/.397/.481 while playing pretty darn good defense in the Royals’ outfield.

It’s a career year for DeJesus at age 30 so you don’t want to unload your system for the guy, but he’s definitely the type of player the Braves and Red Sox could use to shore up their banged up outfields. The Reds have less of a pressing need, but DeJesus would be an improvement over Drew Stubbs.

Expect a lot of DeJesus rebop as we get closer to the deadline.

    The Reds need to forget Stubbs and go with Heisey! Messiah Falcons in the house!
