Yoan Moncada Call-Up Seems Like A 'No-Brainer' Now

With news that Andrew Benintendi may not return this season (or at least not until very late in the year) and given the struggles of Travis Shaw, it seems almost too obvious that super-prospect Yoan Moncada should get a September call-up. Moncada has been playing a very credible third base at AA, so he could help out there. Also, he can slot into LF should Brock Holt or Chris Young falter. At worst, he can be the 'spark-plug' pinch-runner off the bench—something this team sorely needs. So, why is there even any controversy about this? Get him up here tomorrow!
