Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi (hamstring) was able to take batting practice ahead of Thursday's game against the Oakland Athletics. It's also worth noting that Mondesi took fielding drills as well before Thursday's contest. It certainly seems that the young infielder is making solid progress. He has been sidelined since June 6 because of a lingering hamstring injury. The Royals have not given a timetable for his return, but maybe late June or early July is possible. Fantasy managers should keep him rostered or snag him off the waiver wire, assuming someone gave up on him.
Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi (hamstring) was observed taking batting practice on Tuesday. The speedster is currently on the 10-day injured list because of a left hamstring ailment, but it appears as if he is trending in the right direction. Mondesi has played well this season despite the small sample size, batting .360 to go along with nine hits, five RBI, two home runs, and a stolen base throughout seven games. Fantasy managers should continue to keep him on the roster at all costs and await his eventual return, which hopefully will come soon after he is eligible to be activated on June 14.
Kansas City Royals infielder Adalberto Mondesi (hamstring) took batting practice and did some other baseball-related activities on Tuesday. "Mondesi looked really good yesterday," said Royals manager Mike Matheny. The 25-year-old infielder was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain. There is currently no timetable for his return and the Royals will be cautious with him as he recently returned from the injured list on May 23. Mondesi is slashing .360/.360/.720 with two home runs and a stolen base across four games in 2021. Nicky Lopez will continue to handle shortstop duties for the Royals while the incumbent at shortstop is sidelined.
Adalberto Mondesi of the Kansas City Royals is a classic case of a player who is better in fantasy than in real life. His .256/.294/.416 triple-slash line with six homers over 233 PAs in 2020 was nothing to write home about, but his 24 SB would have been useful over a full season. Mondesi is extremely fast (29.4 ft./sec Statcast Sprint Speed in 2020) and succeeded on 75 percent of his SB attempts (eight CS) last year, so he should continue stealing plenty of bases. He also improved his average airborne exit velocity to 94.5 mph in 2020 (92.6 in 2019), allowing him to contribute some homers in addition to steals. The Royals are projected to hit him second, so he should be able to accumulate counting stats as well. Mondesi's plate discipline is terrible, with a 4.7 BB% and 30 K% backed by peripherals such as a 39.9% career chase rate and a 20.1 SwStr% in 2020. He'll torpedo your OBP, though gamers using batting average can rely on consistently elevated BABIPs to mitigate any adverse effects. Mondesi is expensive at an ADP of 25.92 and worth every penny provided you can absorb a batting average hit.
