It has officially sunk in; Chris Sale is a Red Sox. Everyone knew it was going to take a lot to land a type of deal for the 27 year old, 5-time all-star, lefty pitcher.
Update On Red Sox Top Prospect: Yoan Moncada
While the Red Sox have been struggling as of late going 3-7 over the last ten, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss something much more positive, and that is the organization’s top prospect, Yoan Moncada.
The Upside of a Young Moncada
Just a year shy of the official signing of Yoan Moncada, we finally get to see the spring debut of the highly anticipated 20-year-old Cuban second baseman. He is now a boy among men, trying to turn heads in Ft. Myers. And yes, he now has Red Sox Nation’s attention
Last year he put up strong numbers while playing for the Single-A Red Sox affiliate Greenville Drive, showing a .278 batting average, .380 on base percentage, and a .438 slugging percentage. Along with those numbers, he also had eight home runs to his name with 38 runs batted in, and 49 stolen bases in only 81 games. He has shown the potential to be a five-tool player while playing in Greenville. As a result of his successful stint in Greenville last year, he was given the call this spring.
