The Boston Red Sox are reportedly acquiring Adalberto Mondesi from the Kansas City Royals, per Jeff Passan. Mondesi was once regarded as a future star in the big leagues. But injuries have limited his overall production. However, the Red Sox are trading for him to replace an injured player of their own in Trevor Story.

Story’s injury timetable is unclear. There have been whispers around the organization that he could miss the entire 2023 season. But Story is optimistic that he can return this year. Nevertheless, the Red Sox had to find a replacement for him. Kike Hernandez was projected to fill in at shortstop, but he’s never played a full year at the position. This all led to the Adalberto Mondesi deal.
