The Red Sox added some much-needed middle infield help Tuesday, acquiring shortstop Adalberto Mondesi and a player to be named later from the Royals in exchange for left-handed reliever Josh Taylor. Mondesi has fanned in 30.2% of his plate appearances against just a 4.4% walk rate, and he’s a career .244/.280/.408 hitter in the big leagues.

It’s been a quiet offseason for the Royals on the whole, but they’ve taken up a prominent position on the trade market in the past few days, shipping center fielder Michael A. Taylor to the division-rival Twins in exchange for relief prospects Evan Sisk and Steven Cruz, and flipping infielder Adalberto Mondesi to the Red Sox in exchange for reliever Josh Taylor the following day. Lopez is more of of a mid-range player in terms of remaining club control, as he’s arbitration-eligible through the 2025 season.

MLB Second Base Tiers: ‘The Elite’ Ben Verlander and Alex Curry rank MLB's second basemen and have the Astros' Jose Altuve and the Rangers' Marcus Semien in "The Elite" tier. I included Arráez in my first base tiers last week, but he's since been traded to Miami, I believe he'll play second base.

Trout took a pass on the World Baseball Classic in 2017, when Team USA won the tournament for the first time in four tries. I felt a little bit when I came back during the season, and I’ve been on top of it pretty well, keeping the same routine in the weight room just to warm up and making sure all the back muscles around it are strengthened.”
