With their outfield down a starter in Jacoby Ellsbury, and Mike Cameron not ready to start every day, the Red Sox have contacted the Royals about outfielder David DeJesus, per a FOXSports.com report.

The Royals have been scouting the Red Sox' minor league teams, but there's no word on who they might be interested in yet. With David DeJesus affordable at under $5 million and entering his third arbitration year, the Royals are not necessarily in a hurry to deal off the outfielder.

DeJesus is hitting .326/.395/.460 in 328 at bats this year, and has showcased himself in front of the Red Sox with a 1.006 OPS in 24 at bats against Boston.
