Moncada is expected to be in the lineup on Wednesday night when the White Sox host the Los Angeles Dodgers at Guaranteed Rate Field. Don’t expect Moncada to sit much either while he’s up.
“We aren’t bringing him here to sit,” Hahn said of Moncada via MLB.com’s Scott Merkin. “We are bringing him here to continue the development that needs to take place in Chicago.
“He still has some work to do. He’s obviously still very young. But we feel that he’s ready for that next challenge that comes at the big league level.”
The 22-year-old Moncada had a call up with the Boston Red Sox in 2016 and struggled in limited time. But now he’s considered the centerpiece to the White Sox rebuild and could get things going for the team.
