SS - KC - IL10
Royals SS Adalberto Mondesi (oblique) has yet to ramp up his activities.
Mondesi is still resting as he lets his oblique strain heal. It's unclear when he'll start ramping up his activity level, but fantasy managers are encouraged to stay patient while stashing the shortstop in an IL slot.
The Kansas City Royals have placed SS Adalberto Mondesi on the 10-day IL with a right oblique strain.
Mondesi is projected to be a top-10 fantasy SS this season, so his absence to start the year will be quite the disappointment for fantasy managers. The Royals are recalling Nicky Lopez from their alternate site to occupy Mondesi's spot in the meantime.
Adalberto Mondesi will be making his spring debut, batting second and playing shortstop on Friday against the Dodgers.
Mondesi has been battling a foot injury early in the spring. This is a sneaky solid lineup in Kansas City with a potential to score a lot of runs. If Mondesi can get on base his steals and runs could be incredibly high.
Royals SS Adalberto Mondesi (foot) is running the bases on Thursday.
Manager Mike Matheny says Mondesi's foot injury is moving in the right direction. There's no reason to think he won't be ready for the start of the season right now.
Adalberto Mondesi (foot) took batting practice, ran the bases, and participated in fielding drills on Wednesday.
Mondesi was hit in the foot by a pitch before spring training officially started, so the Royals have played things safe with him so far. However, he looks ready to make his Cactus League debut soon and there's no concern for his availability come Opening Day.
