    Royals Betancourt DFA'd

    The Royals have designated Yuniesky Betancourt for assignment, according to Bob Dutton of The Kansas City Star (via Twitter). The move allows for the Royals to call up infielder Tony Abreu from Triple-A Omaha.

    Betancourt rejoined the Royals this past offseason after being included in the Zack Greinke trade to the Brewers after the 2010 season. The infielder was hitting .232/.260/.408 in 56 games with Kansas City this year.
    He should have never been signed in the first place.

    Why he keeps getting a job, I don't know. I liked Symborski's Billy cartoons on him.

    We need to create our own top ten worst positional players. I guess someone cracks the top ten now that Betancourt is teamless.

    does Willie Bloomquist have a job? He's got to occupy at least half those spots. He sucks at more than 1 position.

    He's not doing terribly this season actually.

    I'd like to nominate Jack Wilson though.

    Well, not as terrible. He's still pretty terrible. And that's former All Star Jack Wilson to you.
