The Giants have interest in Royals outfielder David DeJesus, Jr., Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting .
DeJesus is expected to be available in trade talks and he has also been linked to the Red Sox, Padres and Braves.
The left fielder was recently shifted to center and is batting .323 on the season. Kansas City holds a $6 million club option for 2011 on the 30-year-old, so they would command a significant return for DeJesus. The lefty has above-average power and a solid eye to go along with good contact ratings. He can also play all three outfield positions.
Rosenthal notes that the Giants may not want to pay DeJesus' price tag if sensation Andres Torres continues to produce at a .849 OPS.
K.C. is hoping to contend in the near future, so it may very well decide to hang onto DeJesus and instead move other complementary pieces that won't have an impact on 2011. Such candidates include Scott Podsednik, Willie Bloomquist, Jose Guillen and Kyle Farnsworth.
