While the talk as of late has been about trading Soriano and LaHair, it looks like as far as position players go, DeJesus could be out most valuable asset. 4.25 mil for 2013 and the 6 mil option for 2014 are a huge bargain, even if he puts up the numbers he currently is. DeJesus isn't the type of player who's going to turn a bad team good, but if you're looking to add a bat to a solid lineup, he's be one of the better options available, and he can play CF anf RF. While his power numbers arent what they were before 2011, his OBP is right where it's always been, actually a few points above average. There have been several teams showing interest in Jeff Francoeur, who's OPS is at .680 and has never been an OBP guy, so perhaps they'd be interested in DeJesus.
He's exactly the sort of player an AL team with a lot of pop should desire. Detroit, Boston, NY, Texas, etc. None of those team may be nterested however. He would also do well for Washington who is still trotting out Ankiel in CF.
