Reds acquire INF/ OF Willie Bloomquist from Kansas City Royals

The Cincinnati Reds on Monday afternoon acquired infielder/outfielder Willie Bloomquist from the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named later or cash.

Bloomquist was with the Royals as they prepared to take on Oakland on Monday and he was penciled in the lineup as the left fielder at the time of the trade.

Bloomquist, who is 32, has started games this year in left field, center field, second base, third base and designated hitter.

Bloomquist will help the Reds bench down the stretch as they hold off the Cardinals in the NL Central Division with a six game lead going into Monday night’s action.

MLB NOTES: Kansas City Royals

from staff and wire reports

Rick Ankiel gets a fresh start in KC (stlpd)

The Kansas City Royals have long been the whipping boys in the American League. But in 2010, the fans of Kansas City hope they’ll finally have a winner and contender.

The Royals do have some good young talent with pitchers Zack Greinke and Gil MecheĀ  and power hitting from Alex Gordon, Billy Butler and Willie Bloomquist.

This past off-season, general manager Dayton Moore went out and signed free agent outfielders Rick Ankiel to play center field and Scott Posednick to play in left field. Former left fielder and fan favorite, David DeJesus will move from left to right. Most fans wonder, where will Jose Guillen play?

The Royals want Guillen to be the fulltime DH, but he wants to play outfield and nothing else. Guillen was limited last season to 81 games due to various injuries. He was disabled three times while hittingĀ  .242 with 9 homers and 40 RBI’s. When he is in right field, no one in baseball has a better arm than Jose Guillen.

Rick Ankiel is also making a comeback. He was never the same in 2009 for the St. Louis Cardinals after he ran headfirst into a wall making a spectacular catch. He said that he never got over the stiffness and soreness associated with that type of injury.
