Dayton Moore asked by @bobfescoe if he can count on Mondesi in 2022.

"No. You can't. ... We're learning that we're going to have to manage his workloads in ways that he may not be a guy that plays more than 100 games. ... We can't count on him as an everyday player." #Royals

The guy is made of glass, and Dayton is spot on that you can't count on him to consistently be available. Mondi has serious capability, but you can't help the Club if you're always in the tub...

We are still going to try to find a back up SS in case he can't give it a go".

Makes me wonder if some of these injuries the org thinks he can play through. I seem to remember a similar sentiment when he was in AA.

Yeah that has to be a shot at Mondesi to light a fire under him. There's no way. Dayton never says things like that.

It could also be a call out at his off-season conditioning or something we’re not privy to. After Yo died, the Royals org talked about how his regressions each season came after he didn’t work out at all and fell out of contact with the org in the previous offseason and they were working to get him started early for 2017 :-)

It’s possible the Royals think his injuries have a root cause in lack of conditioning or an issue with another area of his game that he's not putting the necessary reps into.

Definitely lost the trust of the organization. He needs to hear that publicly.

I think Mondi may be gone in the off-season. I sure fucking hope not, but I could see it.

If you plan on trading him, probably the worst thing you could say. If you plan on keeping him, the hard love approach may be the best thing you could say.

No way. His trade value is almost nothing now.

If they'd put him in the OF it'd solve alot of these problems.

He's definitely a dangerous person to trade. He legit played the entire season last year, yeah it was only 60 games but he did it just fine.

And both last year and this year he has looked like a real superstar when he's been healthy. If you trade him for a couple low level prospects and he goes out and posts 20 HR/50 SB next year you're going to regret it forever. You're just never going to get that kind of prospect in return.

Right field would be the spot. Center field is a little more injury prone position.

Finally listened to that Dayton interview, it's decent. It's what you figured too, Dayton admitted they thought they'd get more trade calls on guys who were under control but they never came because most of those teams ended up chasing the Cubs fire sale.
