Reds Acquire Adalberto Mondesi

You can focus on the negatives after being traded to a new team — finding a new place to stay, leaving teammates and friends, having to start anew — but one player hopes to focus on the positives. “It means I’m wanted somewhere. At least one team sees potential in me.” Those were the comments heard after the Kansas City Royals came to an agreement to deal 25-year old SS Adalberto Mondesi to the Cincinnati Reds for 21-year old minor league RHP Hunter Greene, 21-year old minor league CF Michael Siani, and 20-year old minor league 3B Rece Hinds earlier today. The deal is expected to be formally announced later this evening.

Kansas City will retain a portion of Mondesi’s remaining contract.

Mondesi has put up a career batting average of .251 with 275 hits, 32 homers and 137 RBIs.
