Royals Acquire John Whittleman

The Royals have acquired John Whittleman from the Rangers in exchange for a player to be named later, reports Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News (via Twitter).

Whittleman, 24, was selected by Texas in the second round of the 2005 amateur draft, but had yet to play above Double-A in the Rangers' system. In over 2,800 minor league plate appearances, the corner infielder has hit .242/.353/.389.

    Whittleman to KC~ It’s a “good grace trade”, for the Rangers. It opens a door for the future. KC has a lot of talent, that won’t make it through their log jam. Rangers have a foot in now, with this trade. Takes the rough off a little, from the Greinke deal being a little edgy. It’s a, “sure buddy, no problem” deal. We’ll benefit down the road. Treanor to KC later?
