KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals have exercised
their $6 million option on outfielder David DeJesus for next
season.

The 30-year-old DeJesus played in only 91 games this year. He
had season-ending surgery on his right thumb after crashing into
the fence at Yankee Stadium. DeJesus was batting .318 with 23
doubles, three triples, five home runs and 37 RBIs.

Since making his debut with Kansas City in 2003, DeJesus is a
.289 career hitter.

The Royals announced Saturday they had picked up DeJesus'
option. If they had declined it, he would have received a $500,000
buyout.
