Impactful Bat Heaven Newsbeat

Monday, September 16, 2019

Yoan Moncada has gone from ‘strikeout heaven to impactful bat heaven’

Yoan Moncada is finishing off a breakout season and he has gotten there with a different approach at the plate.

When Moncada came up through the minors and even in his first two years in the majors, he was known for drawing plenty of walks. At every stop of the minors and in each of his first two seasons with the White Sox, Moncada walked in well north of 10 percent of his plate appearances.

This season, which is inarguably his best in the majors, he has 39 walks in 510 plate appearances. After Moncada added three hits in Sunday’s 11-10 loss to the Mariners, he is now hitting .308/363/.537 with 23 home runs, 72 RBIs and 75 runs scored.

Sunday’s 3-for-5 game added to his red-hot September. Moncada is hitting .436/.492/.636 in 14 games this month. He’s not the only White Sox hitter on fire this month.

To get to impactful bat heaven, does one have to smoke the objective pipe?
