Knights phenom called up to big leagues

CHARLOTTE - It was fun, Yoan.

Charlotte Knights 2B Yoan Moncada, the top prospect in baseball, is on his way to the big league's Chicago White Sox.

 

 

Chicago's much-anticipated promotion of the Cuban pheon was reported late Tuesday night.

Moncada hit .285 with 12 home runs and 36 RBI in 79 games with Charlotte, the Triple-A affiliate of the White Sox.

The 22-year-old was traded in the offseason from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for pitcher Chris Sale.

Moncada burst on to the baseball scene in March 2015, when as a 19-year-old he inked a $31.5 million deal with Boston, a record for an international amateur free agent under 23 years old.
