We got so tired of April dumps that we set a first 6-week dumping trade moratorium in our home league.

In the XFL half the teams are contending and the other half are maneuvering so they can contend in a few years. So, as Tim points out, boom/bust players have special value. The interesting thing is that disciplined teams that create awesome freeze lists, like Doug Dennis and Steve Moyer's in recent years, do win, but the most frequent winners, Don Drooker and Jeff Winick, compete every year. Dump trading in April is no fun.

Greg kept nine Minor Leaguers and is in rebuild mode. As Eugene mentioned, if Mondesi stays healthy he could post some monster numbers and be a very valuable trade chip for a contending team at the trade deadline. There were four teams that had $180+ on Auction Day and they invested in a lot of quality players, all hoping to convert them into either low priced keepers, prospects, or future draft picks.

He's the Byron Buxton of infielders.  One day he'll be healthy for a full season and put up that $40 of earnings.  One day.

15 team AL/NL auctions are weird things ... but 28 for Mondesi in XFL?

Guess they're betting on age 27 magic.

Rotowire:

Homers in win
September 13, 2021
Mondesi went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Twins.
ANALYSIS
Mondesi led off the second inning by taking Baily Ober deep to right field to put the Royals up 2-1. The home run ball snapped an 0-for-17 drought at the plate for the speedster and it was his second home run since returning from the injured list Sept. 1. The 25-year-old is now slashing .265/.286/.603 with six homers, 13 RBI, 11 runs scored, seven steals and 2:25 BB:K over 72 plate appearances.

Rotowire just now:

IL move official
June 21, 2021
The Royals placed Mondesi on the 10-day injured list Monday with a strained left oblique.
ANALYSIS
Though Mondesi isn't dealing with an aggravation of the strained right oblique that sidelined him for nearly two months to begin the season, he'll still be forced to the IL for the third time in 2021 while tending to an injury to his other side. General manager Dayton Moore was unwilling to provide a timeline on Mondesi's return when he met with the media earlier Monday, so the 25-year-old looks like he could be at major risk of spending longer than the minimum amount of time on the shelf. While Mondesi is sidelined again, the Royals are expected to turn to Nicky Lopez to pick up most of the work at shortstop.

From the Athletic today:

InjuryMailbag

Mondesi suffered a right oblique strain late in Spring Training and is still not doing much. The Royals initially said he would miss a couple weeks. As is often the case with this injury, he is going to miss a lot more time than the team initially expected. Our algorithm has given Mondesi a five week Optimal Recovery Time despite the feeling that this is a relatively mild strain. Not only are oblique injuries often slow to heal, but they are very easy to aggravate.

Any rotational movement puts a strain on those oblique muscles. In baseball that means just about anything can bother it. Swinging the bat causes the most stress, so it’s best to limit any sort of hitting drills while the muscle heals. It’s also tough to fully rest any of the muscles in the core because something as simple as breathing or standing up affects them. Because of this Mondesi needs to do essentially nothing until it feels like it is fully healed, and then he can very slowly start to add back in some baseball activities. There is currently no timeline for Mondesi to return. Expect him to miss at least a few more weeks.
