SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have been waiting patiently for Adalberto Mondesi to develop into the player they thought he could be. The time could be now.

The starting shortstop job will be his on opening day with Alcides Escobar departing for Baltimore on a minor league contract.

“Mondesi is a tremendously talented young man,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “We all saw it last year, but he’s just scratching the surface of what he’s going to be able to accomplish. It’s going to be fun I think not only as an organization, but as a city and a fan base to watch him grow.”
