With Trevor Story out for the first few months of the regular season, the Red Sox find themselves needing a shortstop. While Kiké Hernandez is expected to help fill that role initially, the team is now also bringing in another player with MLB experience at the position.
As first reported by Mark Feinsand on Tuesday, the Red Sox are acquiring shortstop Adalberto Mondesi from Kansas City. In exchange, the team wills end relief pitcher Josh Taylor to the Royals. The Red Sox will also get either cash considerations or a player to be named later in the deal.
