White Sox: Yoan Moncada Won’t Be Rushed to Majors
Dan Hayes reports the White Sox won’t rush Yoan Moncada to the majors. Rick Hahn wants to ensure Moncada is sufficiently prepared for the big leagues.
The Chicago White Sox will not rush top prospect Yoan Moncada to the majors according to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago. Moncada is having a phenomenal start to his season at Triple A. Over his last 16 games, the 21 year old is hitting .385 with home runs, seven RBIs and 16 runs scored. He’s obviously having a very good season but the team shouldn’t be in any rush for him to get to the majors.

The last thing this team needs is to rush him to the majors and have him struggle. Hahn has been really careful handling Moncada. It’s important he is able to work some things out before he comes to the majors.
There isn’t much reason to bring Moncada up. He’s better off in the minors getting his reps and being able to play everyday. This team may not be going anywhere this season because they don’t have much on their roster. Since they’re not really going to be a contender, it makes no sense to bring Moncada up quickly.

Moncada is by far the best player in the White Sox system. So they need to be very cautious. This organization doesn’t have a great track record with developing position players. Remember, Gordon Beckham was considered a can’t miss prospect. That didn’t work out very well. If this team is going to succeed, they need to ensure they can start developing their young talent to be contributors. If they can do this, the future will be very bright.
