SS - KC
Royals manager Mike Matheny says Adalberto Mondesi (shoulder) "looks good" in the workout videos he has seen of him.
Mondesi had offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. He was going to be limited in Spring Training 1.0 but the time off has definitely helped his recovery. Still just 24 years old, Mondesi swiped 43 bases in just 102 games last season. He could be a major difference maker in this truncated fantasy season.
Adalberto Mondesi told reporters that he "feels great" and is on track to play Opening Day for the Royals.
Mondesi required shoulder surgery in October after making a diving stop on a ground ball, but he's now "able to perform virtually all baseball duties." He's currently No. 42 overall in our expert consensus rankings, and he's considered the SS9 entering the 2020 season after batting .264 and stealing 43 bases in 2019.
Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi went 1-for-1 with a steal in a 12-8 loss to the Twins on Sunday. He had to exit early due to a shoulder injury.

Royals manager Ned Yost confirms Adalberto Mondesi (shoulder) is done for the season.
Mondesi left Sunday's game after re-injuring his shoulder on a diving stop in the field. He missed over a month with a shoulder issue this summer, so the Royals are shutting him down. The 24-year-old finishes the season with 42 steals and should once again be a polarizing pick in 2020 fantasy drafts.
Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi went 1-for-5 with a double, a run, an RBI, and a steal in a 12-5 win over the Twins on Saturday.
