From Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com comes word that the Royals have traded outfielder Greg Golson to the White Sox for cash considerations.
Golson was drafted 21st overall by the Phillies in the 2004 MLB Amateur Draft. He never developed into much of a hitter and has made only 42 career major-league plate appearances, but the 26-year-old still possesses good speed and elite defensive ability, and will act as quality organizational outfield depth for the Pale Hose during the 2012 season.
Golson batted .263/.330/.385 with eight home runs, 33 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 105 games last year for the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He is a .263/.311/.396 career hitter in the minors.
