Mondesi was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder subluxation Wednesday. Mondesi suffered the injury after diving for a foul ball in Tuesday's game against the White Sox. It's not yet clear when the Royals expect him to return. Humberto Arteaga was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.
Mondesi will undergo an MRI on his left shoulder after leaving Tuesday's game versus the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Per Flanagan, teammate Hunter Dozier said Mondesi believed he suffered a dislocated left shoulder, but there won't be an official diagnosis until after the MRI.
