In researching another tree, which will be up tomorrow, I came across the plight of Paul Giel.  Here is his transaction history from BR.com

June 1, 1961: Traded by the Minnesota Twins with a player to be named later and Reno Bertoia to the Kansas City Athletics for a player to be named later and Bill Tuttle.
June 10, 1961: The Minnesota Twins sent cash to the Kansas City Athletics to complete the trade. The Kansas City Athletics sent Paul Giel to the Minnesota Twins to complete the trade.

Giel was on the Royals for all of 10 days in 1961, appearing in 1 game.  Taking Giel out of the equation, Bertoia and cash were traded for Bill Tuttle.  Tuttle was with the Twins through 1963 before being released.
Not quite Harry Chiti territory, but pretty darn close.
