  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Records 15th steal

    Mondesi went 0-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 7-3 loss to Minnesota.

    The 26-year-old ended 2021 with 15 steals in 16 attempts in just 35 games. Mondesi battled oblique and hamstring issues for much of the season, prompting a move to third base for much of September. He was held without a hit in six of his last 10 games, dropping his season slash line to .230/.271/.452 with six home runs, 17 RBI, 19 runs scored, a triple and eight doubles across 136 plate appearances. Mondesi may continue to log time at third base in 2022. He could also receive regular rest to help alleviate some of the toll of playing the field, although fantasy managers will obviously take notice of his speed when he's in the lineup.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Idle Wednesday

    Mondesi is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

    He'll get a routine maintenance day while Hanser Alberto checks in for him at third base. Over 21 games since returning from the injured list Sept. 1, Mondesi is slashing a meager .187/.237/.307, but he's worthy of a roster spot in every league thanks to a 13-for-13 success rate on stolen-base attempts.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Notches steal in loss

    Mondesi went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Monday's 8-3 loss to Cleveland.

    While it was Mondesi's first theft in his last five games, the infielder has now recorded 13 stolen bases in September. He's 14-for-15 on the basepaths this year while adding a .252/.292/.495 slash line across 116 plate appearances in an injury-riddled season, although a move to third base and regular rest has kept him in good shape recently.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Mondesi isn't starting Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

    Mondesi will be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games after he went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts Tuesday. Hanser Alberto will start at the hot corner and bat seventh.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: On bench for nightcap

    Mondesi will sit for the second half of Monday's doubleheader against Cleveland, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Mondesi went 1-for-3 and scored a run in the afternoon contest. The Royals have been very careful not to overwork him down the stretch, so it's no surprise to see that he won't be asked to start twice in one day. Hanser Alberto will take over at third base.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Notches another steal

    Mondesi went 0-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Mariners.

    Mondesi reached base in the seventh on a fielder's choice and ended up stealing second before the inning concluded. The 25-year-old speedster now has four steals over his last five games and 11 overall in just 24 games this season. He's slashing .264/.297/.540 with 12 extra-base hits, 16 RBI, 14 runs scored and 3:31 BB:K over 93 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Productive in win Saturday

    Mondesi went 2-for-5 with a double, a run, an RBI and a stolen base in an 8-1 win over Seattle on Saturday.

    Mondesi twice used his speed to help the Royals add on to their run total. In the first inning, he notched an infield single that allowed Andrew Benintendi to cross the plate. In the third, he doubled, stole third and came around to score on a Michael Taylor double. Mondesi's theft was his third in four games, pushing his total to 10 on the campaign. The speedster has notched double-digit steals in each of the past four seasons.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: On bench Friday

    Mondesi will sit Friday against the Mariners.

    The Royals have been very careful not to overwork Mondesi since he returned from an oblique injury at the start of September. He's yet to start more than two games in a row in the field, with the team giving him frequent rest either as the designated hitter or on the bench. He'll occupy a bench spot this time around, with Hanser Alberto starting at third base.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Steals in consecutive games

    Mondesi went 0-for-3 with a walk, a hit-by-pitch, an RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored in Wednesday's 12-10 loss to Oakland.

    The infielder has now stolen bases in consecutive games after going five contests without a theft. Mondesi is 9-for-10 on the basepaths in 21 games this season. He's posted a .253/.291/.560 slash line with six home runs, 15 RBI and 13 runs scored across 81 plate appearances. While he was initially eased back into the lineup since returning from an oblique injury, he'll make his fourth straight start Thursday while manning the hot corner and batting fifth. Mondesi will likely continue to benefit from the occasional day as the designated hitter to relieve some of the injury risk of playing the field.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Posts another steal

    Mondesi went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 10-7 win over Oakland.

    Mondesi has struggled a bit since returning from his most recent oblique injury, going just 6-for-36 with 16 strikeouts in his last 10 games. Despite the poor hitting, he's swatted two home runs and stolen seven bases in that span while settling in as Kansas City's primary third baseman. Injuries have made this a mostly lost season for the infielder, who has a .264/.284/.583 slash line across just 76 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Homers in win

    Mondesi went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Twins.

    Mondesi led off the second inning by taking Baily Ober deep to right field to put the Royals up 2-1. The home run ball snapped an 0-for-17 drought at the plate for the speedster and it was his second home run since returning from the injured list Sept. 1. The 25-year-old is now slashing .265/.286/.603 with six homers, 13 RBI, 11 runs scored, seven steals and 2:25 BB:K over 72 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Out of Saturday's lineup

    Mondesi is not in Saturday's lineup against the Twins.

    He is 0-for-16 with eight strikeouts and two steals over his last five games. The Royals will continue to give him days off over the final three weeks in an effort to keep him healthy. Hanser Alberto starts at third base in his stead.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Swipes two bags Monday

    Mondesi didn't get the start Monday but stole two bases after pinch running for Hunter Dozier in the ninth inning of a 3-2 win over the Orioles.

    After Dozier drew a one-out walk, Mondesi replaced him at first base and tried to generate an insurance run with his legs, but Whit Merrifield and Nicky Lopez weren't able to bring him around once he got into scoring position. Mondesi now has six steals in four games since rejoining the Royals' roster at the beginning of the month in addition to going 4-for-13 at the plate with a homer, three RBI and four runs. The 26-year-old may not play every day as Kansas City tries to keep him healthy, but playing time could be the only thing holding him back in September.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Sitting Monday

    Mondesi is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Kansas City is facing a quick turnaround for its Labor Day series opener in Baltimore, which begins at 1:05 p.m. ET. As a result, Mondesi will take a seat after he started at third base while going 1-for-4 with a run and two stolen bases in Sunday's 6-0 win over the White Sox. Since being activated from the 10-day injured list Sept. 1, Mondesi has started three times (twice at third base, once at designated hitter) in five games, going 4-for-13 with a home run, four stolen bases, four runs and three RBI.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Swipes two bags

    Mondesi went 1-for-4 with a run scored and two steals in Sunday's 6-0 win over the White Sox.

    Mondesi did all his damage in the sixth inning where he singled, stole two bases and came around to score. He's swiped four bags in three games since returning from his lengthy stint on the injured list. Through 51 plate appearances, the speedy infielder is slashing .347/.360/.755 with five steals and 10 runs scored.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Resting Saturday

    Mondesi will sit Saturday against the White Sox.

    The Royals were expected to be cautious with Mondesi down the stretch after he missed most of the year with hamstring and oblique injuries. That's been the case in the four days since his return from the injured list, as he's alternated between the lineup and the bench. He's already homered and stolen a pair of bases in his two appearances, showing that his talent is very much still present, but expect him to continue being handled carefully given that the Royals are out of the playoff picture.
