20-Year Old Yoan Moncada Starts At 2B Today For Sox

The player ranked by many as the #1 prospect in the Red Sox organization will play second base today against the Pirates in Bradenton. Yoan Moncada, the 20-year old Cuban phenom, will make the long road trip and hit ninth in the line-up. Joe Kelly will take to the hill for Boston. Here is the full batting order: Rusney Castillo LF; Blake Swihart DH; Pablo Sandoval 3B; Travis Shaw 1B; Ryan Hanigan C; Brennan Boesch RF; Deven Marrero SS; Ryan LaMarre CF; Moncada 2B. The game is at 1:05 PM EST—and, of course, will not be televised by NESN.
