Ex-MLB Star Mondesi Jailed for 8 Years Over Corruption

Former MLB star Raul Mondesi has been sentenced to eight years in prison for political corruption and embezzlement in his native Dominican Republic. Since February of this year, Mondesi has been held on house arrest while awaiting his trial.

Mondesi would be traded two more times during his Major League Baseball career, which he finished with 271 home runs, 860 runs batted in and 1,525 games played.

Mondesi served a six-year term as mayor from 2010-16.

Mondesi played for the Dodgers, Blue Jays, Yankees, Diamondbacks, Pirates, Angels, and Braves during his career. Second baseman Raul A. Mondesi made his professional debut in the 2015 World Series against the Mets and returned to the roster this season after completing a 50-game drug suspension. He retired from baseball in 2005. In 2010 he was elected mayor of his hometown of San Cristobal, a city of 275,000. Los Angeles in exchange received Shawn Green along with Jorge Nunez. The outfielder would remain with the Blue Jays until the summer of 2002 when he was shipped to the New York Yankees for pitcher Scott Wiggins.

Mondesi ended his career with a lifetime batting average of.273, 271 home runs, 860 RBIs and an on-base percentage of.331.

Mondesi's son, who has the same name as him, now plays for the Royals. He is just 22 and has played just parts of two seasons with the Royals.
