It's Only A Matter Of Time Until Yoan Moncada Advances
How you gonna keep 'em down on the farm, after they steal 21 bases in 31 games? That's the question the Red Sox organization will have to answer about Yoan Moncada—the 20-year phenom who is toying with Single A pitching. So far this year for "High-A" Salem, Moncada is hitting .325 with a .455 on-base percentage, .518 slugging percentage and a .971 OPS. He's got three HRs, nine doubles, two triples and 20 RBIs. Oh, and the second-baseman has swiped 21 bases in just 31 games played. Why is this kid not at AA Portland? Certainly, that has to happen very soon. Stay tuned!
