Adalberto Mondesi News
Kansas City Royals shortstop/third baseman Adalberto Mondesi failed to get a hit in the team's season finale against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. However, he did reach base and he managed to steal his 15th base of the year and score a run as well. The 26-year-old dealt with multiple injuries this year and as a result, he only played in 35 games. To go along with his 15 stolen bases, he slashed .230/.271/.452 with six home runs, 17 RBI and 19 runs. Always a divisive figure in fantasy, next spring figures to be more of the same for Mondesi. However, his ADP should be even lower next year as he's coming off such an injury-plagued season.
Kansas City Royals shortstop/third baseman Adalberto Mondesi is absent from the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Zach Plesac and the Cleveland Indians. Hanser Alberto is getting the start at the hot corner and batting ninth in the game. Mondesi has been running wild in September, doing his best to make up for lost time after numerous injuries kept him sidelined for much of the year. He has 13 stolen bases on 13 attempts this month. Unfortunately, he's slashing just .187/.238/.307 in September. The 26-year-old should continue to give fantasy managers a boost in stolen bases over the second half of championship week, but it's hard to count on much else from him.
Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi has been doing his best to make up for lost time in September. In Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, he went 1-for-3 with two stolen bases and a run scored. He has now stolen 12 bases over 15 games this month. He is slashing just .204/.246/.333 across the month, but the stolen bases alone have made him an exceptional asset in all rotisserie and head-to-head categories leagues this month. The 26-year-old played in just 10 games this year before he was activated from the injured list on September 1. His strong finish will likely help make him one of the most divisive players in fantasy drafts come next spring.
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.
