  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Mondesi (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    The 26-year-old underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee last week, so it was only a matter of time before he moved to the 60-day IL. Mondesi isn't expected to return this season while going through an extensive recovery.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Undergoes successful surgery

    The Royals revealed Wednesday that Mondesi (knee) underwent successful surgery last week, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Mondesi was diagnosed with a torn ACL in late April, and he'll now begin his lengthy recovery process following his successful procedure. The 26-year-old is expected to require 6-to-9 months to recover, so he'll likely miss the remainder of the season. Nicky Lopez has served as Kansas City's primary shortstop since Mondesi sustained his injury.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Diagnosed with torn ACL

    Royals president of baseball operations Dayton Moore announced Thursday that Mondesi was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Mondesi has battled more than his fair share of injuries over his seven-year MLB career, and he hasn't made it far into this season without picking up another serious one. He played in just 35 games last season due to a variety of issues and will likely appear in no more than 15 this season, as a torn ACL typically takes eight or nine months to recover from. Expect Nicky Lopez to serve as the primary shortstop the rest of the way, with Whit Merrifield moving into second base from right field. Meanwhile, Kyle Isbel and Edward Olivares are expected to compete for at-bats at the vacated outfield spot.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Move to IL official

    The Royals officially placed Mondesi (knee) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Kansas City recalled infielder Emmanuel Rivera from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move, though Nicky Lopez is on track to step in as the Royals' everyday shortstop while Mondesi is out indefinitely after suffering structural damage to his left knee in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the White Sox. A clearer timetable for Mondesi's return could become available within the next few days, but expect him to miss well beyond the minimum 10 days.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Heading to injured list

    Mondesi (knee) will be placed on the injured list Thursday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Mondesi was removed from Tuesday's win over the White Sox due to knee discomfort, and he underwent an MRI that revealed some structural damage. While a timetable for the 26-year-old's return isn't yet clear, it seems likely that he'll be forced to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the shelf.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Out with knee injury

    Mondesi (knee) is out of the lineup Wednesday versus the White Sox, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    The shortstop was forced to exit Tuesday's win early with knee discomfort and it'll sideline him for at least one contest. More information on his injury will likely come later Wednesday. Nicky Lopez will slide over to shortstop while Edward Olivares enters the lineup in right field and will bat eighth.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Getting more tests for knee

    Royals manager Mike Matheny said Mondesi is scheduled to get more tests on his left knee Wednesday, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. Mondesi is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

    Matheny noted that he's optimistic the knee injury Mondesi sustained in Tuesday's 6-0 win isn't too serious, but the Royals won't know the extent of the issue until doctors have a chance to evaluate the 26-year-old. The injury is a disappointing development it what has already been a rough start to the season for Mondesi, who is hitting .140 with no extra-base hits and is buoying his fantasy value almost exclusively through his five stolen bases.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Leaves with apparent injury

    Mondesi was removed from Tuesday's game against the White Sox with an apparent leg injury, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Mondesi reached on an infield single during the sixth inning and appeared to suffer the injury while returning to first base on a pickoff attempt. The 26-year-old finished 1-for-2 with an RBI and a walk and should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Nursing knee issue

    Mondesi was removed from Tuesday's game against the White Sox with left knee discomfort, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old suffered the injury during the sixth inning while returning to first base on a pickoff attempt, and he was promptly lifted for a pinch runner. Mondesi continues to be evaluated, but manager Mike Matheny said the initial scans of the injury are encouraging, according to Anne Rogers of MLB.com.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Swipes two bags

    Mondesi went 0-for-4 with a walk and two stolen bases in a 5-4 loss Sunday in Seattle.

    Mondesi walked and stole second in the seventh and added another stolen base as the automatic runner in the 12th. He struck out in his other four plate appearances. The positives for the shortstop this season are that he is 5-for-5 in stolen base attempts and has yet to make an error. Other than that, his .301 OPS and nearly 40 percent strikeout rate are providing little, if not negative, offensive value.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Two steals in loss

    Mondesi went 0-for-3 with two stolen bases, a run and a walk in a 4-2 loss Thursday against Detroit.

    Mondesi reached on a force play in the second and walked and scored in the fourth, stealing a base in both cases. The speedy shortstop now has three stolen bases on the season, all of them coming in the last three games. After spending the majority of his time at third base last season, the 26-year-old has started at short in every game in 2022, hitting seventh in the lineup in all but one game.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Records steal

    Mondesi went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 10-7 loss to the Guardians.

    It was a rough opening series of the season for Mondesi, who went 2-for-14 with six strikeouts, a steal, one RBI and one run scored. The shortstop has also regularly hit seventh in the order, providing him fewer opportunities at the plate, and thus less chances to make an impact with his legs on the basepaths. He's recorded no less than 15 stolen bases in each of the last four years despite not playing in more than 102 games in any of those seasons.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Knocks in lone run Saturday

    Mondesi went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in Saturday's 1-0 extra-inning win over the Guardians.

    His first hit of the season was of the walkoff variety, plating Kyle Isbel in the 10th inning. Through two games, Mondesi has hit seventh in the order -- the arrival of Bobby Witt has forced Mondesi down the lineup. The shortstop has also struck out in four of his seven plate appearances so far. The bigger concern is fewer opportunities to run for the 26-year-old, though the Royals again have a lineup that should embrace a bold strategy on the basepaths.
