Getz misses chance to see good friend DeJesus

KANSAS CITY -- Royals second baseman Chris Getz was looking forward to seeing his winter time workout pal, outfielder David DeJesus, in town with his new team, the Washington Nationals.

The Cubs traded DeJesus, who was with the Royals from 2003 to 2010, to the Nationals on Monday. Whoops. Before Friday night's game, DeJesus was moved to Tampa Bay, traded to the Rays for a player to be named or cash considerations.

Getz and DeJesus sometimes work out together in Chicago during the offseason and their wives, Nicky and Kim respectively, are good friends.

"We'll just have to wait a few more days," Getz said.

Indeed, DeJesus will be in Kansas City next Monday for the afternoon makeup game against the Rays. If he's not traded again.
