DeJesus hurt on Jeter's inside-the-parker

David DeJesus The best outfielder on the trade market, the Royals David DeJesus, may be on the shelf.

DeJesus left Thursday night's game against the Yankees with an apparent right wrist injury as he tried to track down a Derek Jeter liner at the wall.

The Royals center fielder made what appeared to be a running, leaping grab of Jeter's liner, but hit the fence and his wrist bent back and the ball dropped out of his glove. Jeter, meanwhile, raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run. He was replaced by Rick Ankiel, who was activated from the disabled list earlier on Thursday.

The Royals have a $6 million club option for DeJesus for 2011. DeJesus is hitting .318/.384/.443 with five home runs and 37 RBI. DeJesus has been mentioned as a trade target for any team needing an outfielder, including the Yankees, Red Sox, Giants, Braves and Rays.

It was the second inside-the-park homer in Jeter's career. His first, coincidentally, was in Kansas City with current Yankees manager Joe Girardi on base. It came on Aug. 2, 1996, off of Jeff Montgomery.

UPDATE: Possible good news for the Royals -- and other teams -- as YES Network is reporting DeJesus suffered a sprained right thumb and will miss the rest of the series. X-rays taken at the stadium showed no fracture.

UPDATE 2: Much less sunny news from the Kansas City Star 's Bob Dutton, who tweets DeJesus will see a hand specialist on Friday and "might be out a while."

This is actually good news for Royals fans as he is one of the few bright spots on the team.  Ned Yost actually has them playing better and at least they are a little more enjoyable to watch. David staying in KC would be nice after so many years of folks like Dye, Beltran, etc.. getting away
