The Boston Red Sox are acquiring shortstop Adalberto Mondesi in a trade with the Kansas City Royals, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Tuesday.

The Royals will get left-handed reliever Josh Taylor in exchanged for Mondesi and a player to be named later, sources told ESPN.

Mondesi, 27, has only played in a total of 50 games over the past two seasons because of injuries.

He was limited to 15 games during the 2022 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on an attempted pickoff play in April. He played in only 35 games in 2021 because of left hamstring and left oblique injuries.

Mondesi was batting .140 (7-for-50) with five stolen bases in five attempts when his 2022 season abruptly ended.

Taylor missed the 2022 season with back issues.
