“It has been on and off,” Cora mentioned, per MassLive’s Chris Cotillo. “He began, once more, his baseball actions. He didn’t really feel so effectively so we needed to shut it down,” Cora mentioned.

Mondesí has struggled to get well from a torn ACL he suffered in April 2022, lengthy earlier than the Pink Sox traded for him. They acquired him with the hope that he can be able to play by Opening Day 2023, however they ended up putting him on the 60-day harm record to begin the season.

He has spent his 2023 in Fort Myers rehabbing his knee, however setbacks have pressured the Pink Sox to close him down in June.

These setbacks have been irritating for each Mondesí and the Pink Sox.

“We’ve accomplished every thing attainable to get him proper,” Cora mentioned. “He has accomplished every thing attainable to get it proper. It’s only a matter of leaping that final hurdle and we haven’t been ready to do this.”

The Pink Sox haven’t but dominated out the potential of Mondesí’s return this season, given how a lot they’ve put into getting ready for that day to come back. However time is just not on their aspect, and Cora is aware of that.

“We’re working out of time,” Cora mentioned. “However it’s not lack of effort. From his finish and our finish, I’ll let you know, we’ve accomplished every thing. We’ll see what occurs.”

Mondesí has all the time had expertise and sky-high potential. The shortstop’s dazzling pace made him the Kansas Metropolis Royals’ high prospect from 2015-16. However his main weak point was his sturdiness, as numerous accidents have allowed him solely 358 video games since he made his main league debut in 2015.

It’s not but clear if Mondesí will be part of the ever-growing record of Pink Sox gamers’ names which were scratched off the harm record. However after the Pink Sox have shut him down with little time left to play, these odds seem much less and fewer possible.
