We all know the extremely disappointing 2018 prized prospect Yoán Moncada provided. Leading the entire MLB in strikeouts as a pitcher is great, but as a hitter…not so much.
Fortunately, Moncada hit the gym, adjusted his mechanics, tightened his white headband and went to work.
Quietly behind the batting champ Anderson, Moncada finished third in the AL in batting average at .315. He cut nearly 60 strikeouts off his horrendous 2018 amount of 217. He hit eight more home runs and drove in 18 more runs. He also boosted his OBP about .060 points and his slug .148 points.
As another face of the franchise who is under team control until 2024, Yoan Moncada is expected to be the next big superstar with MVP-caliber numbers.
