Moncada On Preferred Position: 'My Baby Is 2B'

Newly-acquired 19-year old phenom Yoan Moncada knows where he'd like to play—second base. When asked recently for a positional preference he stated unequivocally, "My baby is second base." Unfortunately for Moncada, that infant is currently under the paternal guardianship of one Dustin Pedroiathrough the 2021 season. Fear not. Chances are Moncada will fill-out his 6'1", 220-pound frame even further in the next couple of years—and thus be more attuned to first/third base or left/right field. Trust us, for $63 million dollars, this kid won't be riding the pine in Portland or Pawtucket/Providence for very long.
