Red Sox Call Up Top Prospect Yoan Moncada To Play 3B

(Icon Sportswire)
The Red Sox made the logical move and called up top prospect Yoan Moncada to the big club. The 21-year old has gotten solid experience playing third base at AA Portland and will likely slot right into the hot corner starting on Friday night in Oakland. The 6'2", 205-pound Moncada is the second prospect to move straight from AA to the major league team this year—the first being LF Andrew Benintendi. This is the right move by the Red Sox and will inject another level of excitement into a team that is now built around youth and skill.
