Toney final piece to Royals-Astros trade
PITTSBURGH -- The deal that brought catcher Humberto Quintero and outfielder Jason Bourgeois to the Royals from the Astros has finally been completed.

The March 20 deal netted Houston left-handed pitcher Kevin Chapman and a player to be named. That player is Minor League outfielder D'Andre Toney, the Royals announced on Sunday.

Toney, 20, was on the Rookie classification roster at Surprise, Ariz., and has been assigned to the Greeneville Astros of the Appalachian League. Toney was selected by the Royals in the 14th round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft out of Hardaway High School in Columbus, Ga.

Last year for Surprise, the right-handed Toney hit .340 in 43 games with five homers, five triples, 12 doubles, 29 RBIs and seven stolen bases.

Quintero is sharing the Royals' catching duties and has a .230 average in 33 games. Bourgeois is batting .195 in 32 games for Triple-A Omaha. Chapman, pitching in relief for the Astros' Double-A club at Corpus Christi, is 3-2 with a 2.30 ERA in 24 games.
