Royals will "push" David DeJesus to play again this season

Jul 27, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

David DeJesus is expected to miss 10 weeks following yesterday’s thumb surgery, but Royals manager Ned Yost said “we’re going to push him” to play again this season.
According to Yost it would provide “peace of mind that he’s going to be able to be full strength next year.” Not rushing him back for some meaningless September games would seemingly be an even better way to ensure he’ll be at full strength next year.
Perhaps the Royals think giving teams even a brief look at DeJesus down the stretch will make it easier to get something resembling full value for him in an offseason trade.

    Um… whyyyy are they going to push him to play? So they finish with 75 wins instead of 74? Or do they just want him to goof his swing up?
    The collective outpouring of genius from the KC organization never ceases to amaze me.
