Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Red Sox. Nicky Lopez will take Mondesi's place, batting ninth. Left-hander Martin Perez will start on the mound for Boston.
The 25-year-old went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer against Boston on Friday night, so the decision comes at a fairly odd time. Ever since returning from the IL on May 25, Mondesi is crushing the ball. He's posted a .344/.364/.813 slash line, is hitting .321 with four homers against southpaws, and has gone .330 with four homers at Kauffman Stadium.
Adalberto Mondesi went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in Friday's 5-3 win over the Red Sox.
Mondesi belted a three-shot off Red Sox pitcher Nick Pivetta to give the Royals a 3-1 lead. He’s now homered in back-to-back games. Since coming off the injured list on Wednesday, Mondesi hasn’t lost a beat. The 25-year-old is hitting .280 with two homers and four RBI across both games. Mondesi is a difference-maker and should continue to produce for fantasy managers as long as he can stay healthy.
