Moncada & Kopech Are Top And Third ChiSox Prospects

When the Red Sox dealt for lefty ace Chris Sale, they had to part with two very talented prospects. Second-baseman Yoan Moncada and pitcher Michael Kopech were two glittering gems of the Boston organization—and now they hold those spots in Chicago. Moncada—universally regarded as the best overall prospect in all of baseball—is obviously number one on The Pale Hose list. But, in third spot is Kopech—he of the reputed 110-MPH fastball. Of course, Kopech also tested positive for amphetamines in 2015—and was a bit of a behavioral problem in the Boston organization. Nonetheless, the White Sox have secured themselves two pretty much "can't miss" players in the deal.
