Yoan Moncada 2017 Outlook

298 posts in this topic

traded him in my keeper based on external advice and internal thoughts of: "you can't trust prospects" and "capitalize on prospect shine" and "win now" and "massive strikeout concerns" and "can't hit a MLB breaking ball"

 

any of y'all got a shotgun? 

 

he is the truth.

If you have room stash him on the end of your bench.  He won't be called up till mid may just so the White Sox can get an extra year of control.  But he will get called up then.  Does he have the arm to play 3rd base?  I can see the Sox trading Frazier by the deadline and possibly moving him over.   Just a theory.

The idea of this guy on my squad with 2B eligibility (after 10 games espn) is very appealing. He's a FA. He won't be playing for at least a month. But I may have to do it. Gonna be a painful month tho with only 3 BN spots

He's played exclusively 2B through the first 5 games. If I'm running the team, I start him at 2B where he has more experience, use Saladino in more of a super-utility role, plug Moncada right into the two-hole in the line-up and bat either Tilson or Anderson leadoff.

He still hasn't done anything on the major league level so no need to panic yet. I'm starting to feel like the amount of hype surrounding him atm warrants a potential sell high in dynasty. If you can get a proven stud why not?

If he continues at his current pace in AAA ball, I would not be at all surprised to see CHI stick him atop the lineup and Anderson hits out of the 9-hole.  Anderson's OBP leaves a lot to be desired and that doesn't appear to be changing much at this season's onset (exactly zero BB in 22 PA).

0/3 with 2Ks and a GIDP so far tonight. Right now, Moncada cannot hit LHP. If there's a reason he isn't promoted in May, it's that. His only hole.... but one he has to improve.

I don't know but as a white sox fan he better be really good the way Sale is pitching.  Damn, Sale is awesome.  I miss seeing him pitch every 5 days.

Are we still expecting a Mid may call up ? 

 

As someone stashing in multiple leagues who has followed just about every AB Moncada has had this season.... I don't know. I think it will depend on how he plays over the next 3 weeks. He needs to some improvement in his ability to hit lefties (last night was a good start) AND perhaps a slight reduction in overall K-rate. Right now he's at 32.7%. Perhaps if he can get that at least under 30, he'll have a shot at a May call-up.

 

If I'm being honest (and I really hope I'm wrong), I'm expecting a June call-up.

Just happened to look up his milb stats because im trying to decide whether to drop him for conforto. Hadnt heard much about him lately. 86 AB, 16 R, 4 HR,7Rbi, 10 BB, 30 K, 6SB, .314 BA. Think we will see him before trade deadline?

Up to .276 against lefties which was one of his big issues. The other has been the Ks. Still too high, but "down" to 28% in his last 10, so that's at least a little better. Defense at 2B has come a long, long way and I'd call it at least average or slightly above due to his athleticism. 

 

I really hate trying to predict callups. He could be up as soon as May 15. Or they could wait longer. Will depend on standings and how the their other second base options are playing.

His K rate will be 35% or higher when he hits the majors.

I remember saying the same thing about Kris Bryant.

I saw that Hahn went to Charlotte, the report assumed to see Moncada. 

I just wonder if they have any reason to rush him. 

Maybe it's the right move to promote him soon or maybe a full season of Triple-A to refine the contact skills and the defense would be best for him long-term. From what I've read, they want to be patient. 

This team has zero chance of winning a title this season, I think they are leaning toward giving him at least most of the summer in Triple-A.

That sounds about as encouraging as you can hope before May 15.

Well, they make it seem like this isn't that far off. Instead of calling him up after a great April, we want him to repeat that success a little longer! Just long enough to get us another year of control would be perfect, for example.
