He is the first player in modern MLB history to make his debut in the World Series, doing so with the Royals in Game 3 on October 30, 2015, against the New York Mets.

After the season, he was named the Class A Lexington Player of the Year by the Royals.[6]

Prior to the 2014 season, Mondesí was considered one of the top prospects in baseball. He was ranked by Baseball America as the team's third best prospect.[7] He was ranked by as the 38th best prospect overall.[8] Mondesi spent the 2014 season with the Wilmington Blue Rocks of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League, and played for the Peoria Javelinas of the Arizona Fall League after the regular season.

In 2015, Mondesi played for the Northwest Arkansas Naturals of the Class AA Texas League. He appeared in the 2015 All-Star Futures Game.[2]

Kansas City Royals

The Royals added Mondesi to their active roster for the 2015 World Series.[9] He became the first player since Bug Holliday in 1885 to make his major league debut during a championship series, when he pinch hit during Game 3 for pitcher Danny Duffy and struck out against New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard.[10] He won his first World Series ring on November 2, 2015, when the Kansas City Royals won Game 5 over the New York Mets.

Mondesi began the 2016 season in Double-A. On May 10, Mondesi was suspended 50 games after testing positive for clenbuterol which is banned by Major League Baseball.[11] His suspension was originally 80 games, but was reduced due to the substance having been ingested via cold medicine.[11]

On August 16, 2016, Mondesi hit his first major league home run against Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander. Mondesi became the youngest Royal to hit a home run since Clint Hurdle in 1978. Mondesi ended the season hitting .185/.231/.281 with nine stolen bases in 47 games.[12]

Mondesi spent the majority of the 2017 season in AAA. He appeared in 25 games in the major leagues, batting .170/.214/.245 with five stolen bases.[12]

After beginning the 2018 season in the minors, Mondesi was recalled during the month of June to play shortstop regularly. In 75 games, he batted .276/.306/.498 and hit 14 home runs with 32 stolen bases.[12]

In 2019, Mondesi hit 9 home runs with 62 RBI in 102 games.

In 2020, Mondesi batted .256/.294/.416 with 6 home runs and 22 RBI, and led the AL in both stolen bases (24) and caught stealing (8).[12]

In 2021, to open the season, Mondesi was placed in the injured list with a right oblique muscle strain. He played in only seven games, from May 25-31, before being placed on the injured list again after straining his left hamstring. He returned on June 16, but played in only three games with the Royals before going back on the injured list. In ten games with the Royals, he batted .361 with four home runs and nine RBIs. On August 3, he began a rehab assignment with the Triple-A Omaha Storm Chasers, playing in five games, but returned to Kansas City on August 15 for examination by team medical staff after experiencing oblique tightness. On August 19, he began another rehab assignment with Omaha.[13] On September 1, he returned to the Royals lineup versus the Cleveland Indians.
