White Sox Moncada works to handle offspeed | MLB.com

“My focus is try to hit a good pitch, a pitch that is in the strike zone,” said Moncada through interpreter Billy Russo after finishing 1-for-4 with a double in the homestand finale. “Fastball is your first approach, but when you see a breaking pitch or an offspeed pitch, you have to make an adjustment.

“You have to be sure that offspeed pitch is in the strike zone because if not, you are giving a favor to the pitcher. You have to be prepared for that and do something to adjust in your at-bats during a game. That’s the way I’m trying to adjust to the league. That’s the way I’m trying to make adjustments: at-bat to at-bat.”

Moncada’s Heroics Deliver Sweep of Astros

Yoan Moncada played hero for the first time with a game-tying blast and followed it up with a walk-off single, giving the White Sox their second series sweep of the season as they knocked off the Astros, 3-2, in 11 innings at Guaranteed Rate Field on Thursday.

“It was something indescribable,” said Moncada through interpreter Billy Russo. “All my emotions were to the roof when I hit that ball and then when I was running the bases. It was something unique.”

ED: He turned around a 99mph Giles fastball for the HR then laced a 97 mph fastball for the walk off rope single.  I’m officially a lot less worried about his ability to hit MLB fastballs.
