Playing third base and batting fifth – Yoan Moncada (age 25)

Unlike the less than successful signing of Rusney Castillo – this Cuban signing has paid dividends.

The development took a few seasons, but a Rookie of The Year Award in 2018 showed the wait was worth it. Advertised as a five-tool player in was no hyperbole, but the real thing.

Moncada has played both second base and the outfield before the need arose at third when Sandoval was traded. The move showed just how adaptable the speedy Moncada is. Then there is the power that is present from both sides of the plate.
