Royals Acquire Desmond Henry

The Royals announced that they have acquired outfielder Desmond Henry from the Rangers to complete the November deal that sent Tommy Hottovy to Texas.  The deal called for KC to receive a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Henry, 19, was the Rangers' fourth-round pick in the 2011 draft and signed with the club for $200K.  The switch-hitting outfielder boasts tremendous speed and has the potential grow into a strong defensive player.
