Player Notes
Royals shortstop prospect Raul Mondesi launched his first home run of the year Tuesday for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Advice: Mondesi struck out three times in the game but is still hitting .273 with a .409 slugging percentage. A defensive whiz with plus speed, anything Mondesi does at the plate is gravy. With Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar under contract for at least three more seasons, there's no rush for Mondesi to make it to the big leagues.

Royals prospect SS Raul Adalberto Mondesi went 3-for-4 with a stolen base on Monday for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Advice: It was his third stolen base of the season, though he was also thrown out attempting to steal in the game. Mondesi appeared in Northwest Arkansas’ season opener on April 9, but an injury subsequently sidelined the 19-year-old shortstop for nearly five weeks, keeping him out of action until May 15. The switch-hitting Mondesi has gone 4-for-14 with two stolen bases since returning to the field, and he’s 5-for-17 overall. Viewed as one of the top shortstop prospects in the minors, Mondesi struggled mightily last season at High-A Wilmington, batting just .211/.256/.354 with a 25.9% strikeout rate. He’ll look to bounce back this season against more advanced competition in the Texas League.
