Red Sox acquire INF Adalberto Mondesi from Royals

The Boston Red Sox acquired infielder Adalberto Mondesi from the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday in exchange for left-hander Josh Taylor.

Boston also will receive a player to be named later.

The Red Sox fortify their middle infield with Mondesi, who is mainly a shortstop but has also played 68 games at second and 20 games at third during his seven-year career.

Mondesi played in just 15 games in 2022 before an ACL injury that required surgery wiped out the rest of his season. It’s one of several injuries Mondesi has endured since 2018.

Mondesi, 27, is a career .244 hitter with 38 home runs and 133 stolen bases in 358 career games with the Royals.

Taylor, 29, missed all of 2022 with a back injury. He appeared in 61 games in 2021 and sports a 4-3 record and 3.69 ERA in 121 career appearances (one start) over three seasons in Boston.
