Yoan Moncada is the best player on the Chicago White Sox. They acquired him from the Boston Red Sox for Chris Sale back in 2016. At that time, Moncada was the number one prospect in all of baseball. He has started to live up to it once 2019 rolled around and he had his breakout year. He is on the track of a superstar player and the White Sox are hoping he plays at a high level for them for a decade or more.
Moncada was a top-ten hitter in all of baseball in 2019 and top-three in the American League. It was a phenomenal year for him that showed that he is still going to be an enormous part of the success of the White Sox. It shouldn’t surprise anyone if he eventually goes on to be MVP good and on a Hall of Fame trajectory.
For all of these reasons, he is probably the last player that the White Sox would ever trade right now. He is so good and is going to be a key cog on this team for a long time. When the White Sox need a player to come up clutch in the field or at the plate, he could be that guy. His move from second to third base was a brilliant move for his career because he became an elite defender and an elite hitter as a result. The White Sox are so lucky to have this kid.
