Adalberto Mondesi’s history with the Kansas City Royals dates back to his debut in the 2015 postseason, and only Salvador Perez has more.
He is presently the club’s longest-serving member, surpassing Whit Merrifield in terms of tenure. Despite this, at only 26 years old, he is still very youthful.
With that in mind, it’s past time for the Royals to face the reality of their once-highly touted prospect.
Mondesi has been exciting, though inconsistent player throughout his career, who has been unable to stay on the field owing to injury or poor performance.
He also strikes out a lot, doesn’t get on base enough for his exceptional speed to make a difference, and is generally underrated defensively.
After Mondesi went down with an injury only a few days before the season started, the Royals sent Nicky Lopez back to Omaha before recalling him.
Since then, Lopez has emerged as the Royals’ offensive surprise of the season, demonstrating that he is more than capable of forcing Mondesi to third base when he returns to the lineup.
What Nationality is Mondesi?
Mondesi is Dominican American. His parents are from the Dominican Republic but he was given birth in Los Angeles, California
Is Adalberto Mondesi Black?
From his skin tone, you can tell he has that melanin skin of a black person. Although nearly all Dominicans are of African and European origin, only a small percentage of the population considers themselves to be black.
