The Chicago White Sox are so lucky to have a player like Yoan Moncada right now.
Yoan Moncada isn’t as flashy as some of the other stars in the game right now. He won’t ever flip his bat or do anything like that but he is an elite baseball player. He is a player that has everything you need in a third baseman. He can hit for power or contact along with playing outstanding defense. He is, as of right now, the best position player on the Chicago White Sox right now and it isn’t close. He was the first piece in the rebuild and now we know why.
Moncada has never appeared in an All-Star Game and that will have to wait at least another year. You would think that multiple trips to the mid-summer classic are on the horizon for him but he has a long career ahead of him.
A few days off in the middle of July are going to be good for Moncada. He is currently dealing with a little bit of a hand injury but it shouldn’t affect him too badly going forward. It would have been nice to see him playing third base at some point for the American League All-Stars this year but it just wasn’t meant to be.
