July 20 10:06 AM PT11:06 AM MT12:06 PM CT1:06 PM ET13:06 ET17:06 GMT1:06 10:06 AM MST12:06 PM EST12:36 PM VEN21:06 UAE12:06 PM CT-Yoan Moncada went 0 for 2 Wednesday in his major league debut as the Chicago White Sox fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-1.
Analysis: Moncada, a second baseman acquired in December as the main piece in a trade with Boston for ace Chris Sale, will stay at second base rather than move around the infield. The 22-year-old Cuban was considered to be the No. 1 prospect in the minor leagues by Baseball America and MLB.com. He also has experience playing third base in the minor leagues.
July 19 9:32 PM PT10:32 PM MT11:32 PM CT12:32 AM ET0:32 ET4:32 GMT12:32 9:32 PM MST11:32 PM EST12:02 AM VEN8:32 UAE11:32 PM CT-Moncada will be recalled Wednesday from Triple-A Charlotte prior to Chicago's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The White Sox traded third baseman Todd Frazier to the Yankees on Tuesday night.
Analysis: Moncada was batting .282 with 12 home runs, 36 RBIs, 57 runs scored, 49 walks, 17 stolen bases and a .377 on-base percentage in 80 games with Charlotte this season - his first in the White Sox organization. He was acquired in the offseason trade that sent Chris Sale to the Red Sox. Boston spent $63 million - including a record $31.5 million bonus - to sign Moncada in 2015 after he left Cuba, and he was recently named the top prospect in the game by Baseball America.
Apr. 8 7:54 AM PT8:54 AM MT9:54 AM CT10:54 AM ET10:54 ET14:54 GMT22:54 7:54 AM MST9:54 AM EST10:24 AM VEN18:54 UAE9:54 AM CT-Moncada had four hits for Triple-A Charlotte on Friday night after collecting three in his debut Thursday.
Analysis: White Sox manager Rick Renteria won't get carried away, though, despite Moncada's early success. "I'm glad that he's moving forward. I think for me to start thinking that far ahead wouldn't be prudent. I think it doesn't serve me in any way, shape or form at this particular time with what we're trying to do with the guys that are here," said Renteria. Moncada was the major piece in the Chris Sale trade and is ranked by many as a top five-prospect.
