White Sox top prospect Yoan Moncada has own ‘expectations’ after Chris Sale trade | CSN Chicago

“I also have expectations about myself because of the trade,” Moncada said through an interpreter. “This team gave up a lot to get me. I feel very humbled for this opportunity. I expect to be a big part of this team in the future and to help this team to win so many games and to win a World Series. That’s my goal and that’s the mindset that every one of us have to have.”

Pleskoff Scouting Report - Yoan Moncada

All about Moncada.

CONCLUSIONS
I totally believe Yoan Moncada will realize his offensive upside. He has the tools and the physicality to bust open a ball game with one swing of the bat.

I believe his defense will continue to improve, and it remains possible a full-time defensive position will be determined. However, the Red Sox have the luxury of using Moncada as a designated hitter. With the departure of David Ortiz, Moncada could slip nicely into that role. It may not happen when the team breaks camp in April, but it isn’t a pipe dream to consider Moncada could be an awesome designated hitter for years to come. That scenario will come into play only if he doesn’t pan out with a defensive position.

Boston Red Sox plan to leave Yoan Moncada on bench down the stretch - Boston Red Sox Blog- ESPN

The guy is an incredible talent. That talent needs to be refined.

Farrell said Moncada can benefit from simply watching games from the dugout and asking questions of his veteran teammates.

“If you notice in the dugout, he’s in and around a number of guys, and that’s done on purpose to just walk through game situations, to think the game, to rehearse certain things,” Farrell said. “When he finds himself back in the spots, hopefully he’s lived it in his mind a little bit.”

Said Moncada: “What I’ve learned, basically, is that you have to have patience and learn from every situation. It’s been a tough week, but it’s all a part of the process and what I have to do to be in the big leagues.”

The education of Yoan Moncada

New York wanted Moncada at $25 million. Hastings said another team was over $30 million. The Yankees refused to budge. Hastings said Moncada would go elsewhere. The Yankees pulled their offer. Hastings called Eddie Romero, the Red Sox’s VP of international scouting, and said: “We’ve got a deal.” Just like that, over the course of two minutes, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound, switch-hitting infielder with game-breaking speed, legitimate power and a jeweler’s eye went from being convinced he was a Yankee – “I really thought that’s where I’d end up,” Moncada said – to the Red Sox.

Moncada, Hastings and Mesa started high-fiving. Jo sat off to the side, quiet. They stopped celebrating and looked at her. Jo was never quiet. They wanted to know what was wrong. Nothing, she said. It’s great. She just … it was surreal.

“I feel numb,” she said.

Silence permeated the kitchen until Moncada broke it.

“And I,” he said, “feel rich.”

Red Sox Call Up Top Prospect Yoan Moncada « CBS Boston

It will be interesting to see him play defense at 3B.

Boston announced on Wednesday night that Yoan Moncada, who recently shifted from second base to third base, will be promoted to the majors in time for Friday night’s game in Oakland.
