Acquired OF-L Donnie Dewees from Chicago Cubs in exchange for RHP Alec Mills. [2/8]

The Royals traded for a very Royals type of player, with the bonus of having him also be a Cubs plate approach guy. Dewees’ profile is more fourth outfielder than starter, but he is very likely to reach that role, with good bat-to-ball skills, plus speed, and the ability to play all three outfield positions—although the arm is stretched in right field and the glove is stretched in center field. He’s not quite as fast as Terrance Gore, but he’s a much more well-rounded player and could play a similar role on the Royals as soon as 2018. —Jeffrey Paternostro
