Sox Held Private Florida Workout For Moncada

Yoan Moncada
The Red Sox were among six major league teams that held private workouts in Florida for Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada. The 19-year old switch-hitting phenom is expected to garner a contract in the $30-$40 million range. Moncada has not obtained a license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), so he cannot yet sign with an MLB club. The Red Sox are already over the international spending cap (as are the Yankees), so there would be extra cost for Boston to sign the highly-coveted Moncada.
