SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) – Adalberto Mondesi might be one of the best kept secrets in baseball.

Five seasons after he became the only player to make his big league debut in the World Series, the 24-year-old Mondesi has blossomed into an emerging star for the Kansas City Royals.

Last season, his 10 triples tied for the most in the majors and his 43 stolen bases ranked second.

He did that despite injuries limiting him to 102 games.
