"It may not be [right field]," manager Buddy Bell said of Teahen's final destination. "Where he's going to play, I'm not really sure. I think he can play anywhere in the outfield. We're just not sure where that is going to be just yet. I like what I see of Teahen in center. We'll see how David is when he comes back."
Bell said DeJesus is expected back in camp on Thursday or Friday.
"He's going to be weak," Bell said. "Hopefully, he'll be strong enough to play in a game by this weekend or the beginning of next week, so he'll have enough at-bats going into the season where his timing will be right where it needs to be."
Luke Hudson's shoulder tightness has created some confusion on how the Royals' rotation will shape up.
Hudson was scratched from a scheduled start on Monday in a Minor League game because of the sore right shoulder.
Hudson missed the 2003 season after having arthroscopic surgery on the shoulder. In 2005, he missed 58 games with inflammation in his right shoulder.
"A couple of years ago I had some tightness," Hudson said. "I didn't say anything about it. I tried to throw through it and it made me miss about a month and a half. I didn't want to go down that road again."
Hudson said he'll see how the shoulder "feels in the next couple of days" after a mound session.
"We plan on him making his next start, but right now, it's up in the air depending on how he throws," Bell said. "The rotation is still up in the air in terms of who because of injuries.

"The good thing is we have some options. We feel like whoever is going to be in the rotation is going to give us a chance to win. That's the good part and that's the best part."
Odalis Perez, who left his previous start against the Giants after three innings with a finger blister, is scheduled to make his next start on Saturday.
Brian Bannister, who is a candidate for the fifth slot in the rotation, had a rough outing in Wednesday's 11-10 loss to the A's.
Bannister gave up seven runs on nine hits, including four home runs. In the five-run third, Bannister gave up three consecutive home runs to Nick Swisher, Mark Ellis and Dan Johnson.
"Banny needs to pitch more down in the zone," Bell said. "He can't pitch in the zone like he has the last few times. He struggled."
Bell said the MRI of Angel Sanchez's elbow showed no structural damage, but he will likely have another MRI in a couple of days and would probably see Dr. James Andrews next week for a further examination.
"A lot of times, when you have injuries like that, they don't show up until a few days after it," Bell said.
Scott Elarton and Zach Day, who are both rehabbing from shoulder surgery last year, are each scheduled to throw two innings in a simulated game on Thursday.
Jorge De La Rosa will start for the Royals on Thursday in a 3:05 p.m. CT rematch against the A's, who will start Joe Kennedy.
