He's a good RFer and a below average 2b that will do in a pinch (though his arm and ability to range into the OF and medium range fly balls is often very useful).
He's inexpensive and fits your roster well. With the Royals now needing to deal with RF, he seems a great trade target for you.
Get your stinkin' paws off Mondesi, you damn dirty ape!
