Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Two steals against Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi went 1-for-5 with two stolen bases in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Twins.

After singling against Sean Poppen in the seventh inning, Mondesi stole second and third to triple his stolen stolen-base total for the season. Mondesi has drawn only one walk in 62 plate appearances and is still without a homer. However, after batting as low as eighth last week, Mondesi has hit fifth in each of the Royals' last three games, which suggests manager Mike Matheny is confident that Mondesi is close to getting it together.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Registers three hits Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi went 3-for-4 with a double, run scored and RBI in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

Mondesi plated the Royals' first run of the game with a single in the second inning and scored their final run in the ninth. The 25-year-old has overcome a slow start by reaching base in six of his last seven games, going 11-for-24 (.458) over that span. Mondesi is batting .289 (13-for-45) on the season, though he has stolen only one base in three attempts.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: In Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi (quadriceps) will bat eighth and play shortstop Monday against the Cubs, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Mondesi left Sunday's game against the White Sox after fouling a pitch off his leg, but his removal was considered precautionary, so it's no big surprise to see him remain in the lineup Monday. Mondesi has started all 11 games this season despite going just .231/.231/.333 at the plate, though the rebuilding Royals have little reason not to let him work through his struggles on the field.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Lifted early Sunday as precaution
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi was removed from Sunday's game against the White Sox after the fourth inning with a quadriceps contusion, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

According to Lewis, the Royals are labeling Mondesi's removal as precautionary after he fouled a pitch off his lower leg during his lone at-bat in the second inning. Mondesi ended up grounding out in the at-bat and went on to play the next two innings in the field, but the Royals decided to err on the side of caution by pulling him out of the contest early. Nicky Lopez (shin) came off the bench to replace Mondesi, who can be considered day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener with the Cubs.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Moves down batting order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi will start at shortstop and bat seventh Sunday against the White Sox.

Mondesi hit either second or third in the Royals' first five games of the season, but he's since shifted down in the lineup, as he'll bat sixth or lower in the order for the fourth time in five days Sunday. The change hasn't had much of a negative effect thus far for Mondesi, who has reached base in each of his past four starts while going 7-for-17 with three runs, two extra-base hits and a stolen base.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Looks 'fantastic' after shutdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Royals manager Mike Matheny said Sunday that Mondesi (shoulder) "looks fantastic" since joining Kansas City for summer camp, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports. "He's strong, moving well," Matheny said. "He took a live [batting practice Saturday] and took a couple pitches inside, and they were good pitches, and turned them around. Timing looks good."

After undergoing surgery in October on his left shoulder, Mondesi was eased into spring training and wasn't scheduled to make his Cactus League debut until March 12, but he ultimately didn't get the chance to play after MLB suspended its season that same day. Now nearly four months later, Mondesi has been able to take advantage of the shutdown to get back to full health, and Matheny's comments suggest the talented shortstop is back to 100 percent as the Royals prepare for a 60-game season. Given the scarcity of steals league-wide even in a full 162-game slate, Mondesi's ability to impact that category could be amplified in an abbreviated campaign. In 177 games over the past two seasons, Mondesi has gone 75-for-89 in stolen-base attempts.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Spring debut on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi (shoulder) will start at shortstop and bat second in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

The Royals have been pleased with the progress Mondesi has made this spring following his prolonged recovery from October surgery on his left shoulder, so he'll get the green light to enter the spring lineup for the first time. It's worth noting that rain is in the forecast in Arizona in advance of the game's 4:05 p.m. ET start time, so it's possible the contest gets postponed and Mondesi's spring debut is pushed back to Friday. In any case, Mondesi will likely only need to play a handful of games during the Cactus League slate to guarantee his availability for the March 26 regular-season opener.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Taking part in more team activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi (shoulder) is taking part in more baseball activities alongside the rest of his teammates, though he's yet to get into game action, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Manager Mike Matheny described Mondesi as "tracking well," though the fact that he's yet to appear in a game with Opening Day just 15 days away doesn't seem to bode well for his ability to avoid a trip to the injured list. The Royals have yet to officially announce when Mondesi is expected back from labral repair surgery.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Hopes to play in games next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi (shoulder) won't get into games until next week at the earliest, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Last weekend the hope was that he might be ready for Cactus League games this week, but he is still not ready. Mondesi is coming back from the same shoulder procedure (labral repair) that resulted in ineffective seasons from Gregory Polanco and Michael Brantley in their first years back from surgery, and it is still not a lock that he will be ready for Opening Day.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Nearing game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi (shoulder) doesn't have a set date for his spring debut, but it could occur this week, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Mondesi took a big step Saturday by seeing limited action in an intrasquad game as he continues his recovery from the left shoulder surgery he underwent in September. Manager Mike Matheny reiterated the young shortstop remains on track to be ready for Opening Day.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Won't play spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi (shoulder) will play in games this spring, but not in Friday's spring opener against the Rangers, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Mondesi underwent shoulder surgery at the end of last season, but he remains on track for Opening Day, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. If he suffers a setback, Nicky Lopez would likely start at shortstop to open the season.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: On track for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

New Royals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Mondesi is progressing in his rehab from left shoulder surgery and is on schedule to be ready for Opening Day, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

When Mondesi underwent surgery at the end of last season, he was given a five-to-six month estimated recovery timetable, leaving Opening Day in doubt. It's great to hear that he's progressing well, though we still expect some limitations in spring training. While Mondesi's rate stats took a big step backward last season, he is only 24 with the rare combination of power and game-breaking speed. The dream is still very much alive for fantasy.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Opening Day in doubt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi will undergo shoulder surgery for a tear in his joint next week, a procedure which will keep him out for five or six months, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Mondesi had already been ruled out for the season, but he's now at risk of missing time at the start of next year. Opening Day is just over six months away, so the stated timeline should still see him back on the field in time for the first game of the season, but even a small setback will likely result in him opening the season on the injured list. Regardless of his exact return date, he'll come with some injury risk during draft season, as it can never be fully guaranteed that a player will perform at his pre-surgery level immediately after returning to action.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi has been ruled out for the season and will visit a team physician Monday as the Royals look to determine the severity of his shoulder injury and identify a treatment plan, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Mondesi exited Sunday's game against the Twins in the first inning after his left shoulder popped out of its socket while he made a diving stop in the field. He dislocated the same shoulder back in July and will need to take some time off to heal, though it's not yet known if offseason surgery will be in the works. Despite being limited to just 102 games due to health issues, Mondesi wraps up a banner campaign with nine home runs, 62 RBI, 58 runs and 43 stolen bases to go with a .263/.291/.424 slash line.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Exits with apparent shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi was removed from Sunday's game against the Twins in the first inning with an apparent shoulder injury, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

Mondesi got hurt on a diving play in the infield and was spotted holding his left shoulder while walking off the field. Considering the shoulder is the same one that he dislocated in mid-July, there's legitimate reason to believe the Royals may hold him out for additional contests. Before departing Sunday, Mondesi went 1-for-1 with his 43rd stolen base of the season, leaving him two bags behind the Mariners' Mallex Smith for the major-league lead.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Joins 40-steal club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi went 0-for-5 with two stolen bases, a run and three strikeouts in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Twins.

Mondesi got aboard on a fielder's choice in the third inning, then stole second base. Later in the inning, he and Jorge Soler completed a double steal. Mondesi got aboard again in the eighth on an error, and then scored on a Hunter Dozier single. The speedy shortstop is up to 41 stolen bases, ranking second in the majors. He's added nine homers, 61 RBI and 57 runs scored in 100 games this season despite striking out at a nearly 30 percent clip.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Drives in two in three-hit night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi went 3-for-5 with a triple, a double and two RBI in Monday's 6-5 win over the Athletics.

Mondesi's slugging percentage is down 59 points from his breakthrough 2018 campaign, but the 24-year-old has more or less lived up to fantasy managers' draft-day expectations when he's been healthy enough to play. The shortstop has overcome a shaky plate approach to maintain a .270 average, with his elite speed and 38.4 percent hard-hit rate offering some legitimacy to his elevated .362 BABIP. And though he was caught stealing Monday, Mondesi has been the majors' most prolific base stealer on a per-game basis, nabbing 39 bags in just 96 contests.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi is not in Thursday's lineup against the White Sox.

Since coming off the injured list, Mondesi is hitting .308 with two home runs and eight steals in nine games. Nicky Lopez will get the nod at shortstop while Whit Merrifield starts at the keystone.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Big night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, two additional runs scored and two stolen bases in Wednesday's 8-6 win over the White Sox.

The 24-year-old's offensive arsenal was on full display, and Mondesi now has nine homers and 39 steals on the year through only 91 games to go with a .270/.297/.439 slash line. His weak OBP puts a ceiling on his fantasy value in certain formats, but as long as he keeps running every chance he gets, Mondesi will be a highly sought-after asset in 2020.

Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: First homer since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mondesi went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the White Sox.

It was the shortstop's eighth homer of the year and his first in eight games since recovering from the shoulder injury that cost him six weeks of action. Mondesi is slashing .265/.286/.382 since his return with a 1:12 BB:K, but his six steals have kept his fantasy value high while he shakes off the rust at the plate.
