White Sox prospect Yoan Moncada off to hot start in Charlotte
The Chicago White Sox are off to a slow start this season, posting a 1-2 record in just 3 games.
They split with the season opening series with the Detroit Tigers before losing Friday to the Minnesota Twins.
But while the major league team struggles to open the season, their top prospect is off to a hot start in Triple-A Charlotte.
Yoan Moncada picked up right where he left off in his first game with Charlotte, going 4-for-5 at BB&T Ballpark on Friday night.
Moncada is now 7-for-11 in his first two games with an RBI. His efforts on Friday helped fellow prospect Carson Fulmer pick up his first win of the season.
“It was a good game,” Moncada said via CSN Chicago. “It was a good way to start the season. I felt really good with my bat, with my swing. I hit the ball with authority throughout the whole field. My legs were loose and ready to run, I took every opportunity to make an impression and to help my team.”
The White Sox acquired Moncada in the Chris Sale trade to Boston. He’s ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in all of baseball entering the season.
