David DeJesus’ wife Kim reacts to trade to Tampa Bay Rays

Kim-DeJesusDavid DeJesus’ wife Kim was the highlight of the trade deadline this season. The former Chicago Cubs outfielder’s name was the subject of a number of trade rumors on July 31, but he ended up staying put. Or should we say, he ended up staying put for a couple more weeks.

Last month, Kim DeJesus posted a number of funny Vine videos of herself drinking and cooking to try to cope with the stress of trade rumors. Little did she know, getting through the deadline did not necessarily mean David was staying in Chicago. DeJesus was placed on waivers Monday and claimed by the Washington Nationals. He played three games with the Nats before they placed him on waivers again. Now, DeJesus is heading to the Tampa Bay Rays.

At least Kim is making the most of it, and the visual of her in a bikini is one that could put a smile on almost anyone’s face. As for the waiver confusion, the belief is that the Nationals may have wanted to clear DeJesus’ money and keep him, but he was claimed by the Rays. Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo sounded like he intended to keep DeJesus prior to the move.

“(DeJesus) improves our left-handed side of the bench immediately,” Rizzo said, via FOXSports.com. “He’s also a guy that is capable of being an everyday player. He can step in there for extended periods of time if there are injuries. He helps us in a variety of ways.”

Nevertheless, Kim and David are on the road again. I’d be happy to provide a shoulder to cry on if she struggles to get through this difficult time.
