    I don't think there's a "usual" case. Every case is different. He could be out the rest of the year. He could be back tomorrow. Bellinger's separated his right shoulder in May and stayed in the game.

    On the positive side we do know it's his glove arm.

    Mondesi question
    We know that he can steal bases, but is there any tangible reason to believe that he can eventually get a decent batting average and learn to take a walk?
    How is he not just Billy Hamilton?

    He's hitting .266 and he hit .276 over the last two years which certainly fall into the "decent" category. As far as taking a walk, not likely.

    But sure, he's Billy Hamilton... who instead plays SS ... and gets regular ABs ... hits with some power (close to avg mlb exit velo unlike BH who is dreadful) ... and maintains a decent avg. Which makes him significantly, significantly more valuable than Billy Hamilton in roto.

    Not to mention Mondesi hitting in the heart of the order vs Hamilton hitting 9th.

    brett phillips promoted, billy hamilton dfa

    phillips has 18 home runs, 22 steals (1 caught stealing), a ton of walks (72) and a ton of strikeouts (115) in triple A in 2019. baseball america #80 overall ranked prospect (#57 prior) just a couple of seasons back, speculation is just turned 25 year old half way through the season is going to share center field with starling.

    I think he'll get a lot of at bats...

    David Glass has reached an agreement to sell the team to KC businessman John Sherman for $1 Billion. Oh, he bought the team in 2000 for $96m......yowza.

    ICYMI: Mondesi came back and has stolen 4 bases in his two games since returning. Looks good to go!
