Analysis: Mondesi led the majors with 24 stolen bases in 59 games during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season while batting .256 with six homers and 22 RBIs. Nicky Lopez was competing for the second base job but is now likely to share shortstop duties with Hanser Alberto. Whit Merrifield and Alberto are expected to get the bulk of playing time at second, with Merrifield also spending time in the outfield.
