Position Players Performances

Yoan Moncada

To say Yoan Moncada 2018 season has been a disappointment thus far is an understatement. Leading the league in strikeouts is not something you want from the guy you traded your Cy Young-caliber ace for.

Despite striking out 183 times, it seems Moncada has made some adjustments. And it shows.

In his last six games, he holds a .333 OBP and a .455 slugging percentage with an OPS of .788 and six runs batted in.

He still has some kinks to work out, but that’s baseball. There are ups and there are downs. With Moncada’s little hot streak as of late, it could be signs of a new and improved young player ready to help the White Sox contend in the coming years.

Tim Anderson

Another player that proved to be disappointing in the early part of the season is Tim Anderson. Fortunately for him and the team, he has seemed to have turned things around, however.

In his last twelve games, he is hitting a staggering .292 with a .327 OBP and a .563 slugging percentage. He’s hit two home runs, five doubles, a triple and driven in 10 runs.

If you add the fact that he has already swiped 25 bags, given he continues this offensive hot streak, he will turn what seemed to be a disappointing season into Timmy’s revenge.
