Promising Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada signed with Boston on Monday for $31.5 million. FanGraphs’ lead prospect analyst Kiley McDaniel spoke with him on Tuesday and has provided a series of audio vignettes from that conversation, which are reproduced here. Note: the actual audio with Moncada begins at about the 10:30 mark. It’s preceded by a brief conversation with McDaniel, who provides helpful contextual notes and other observations.
From McDaniel’s conversation:
Grabbed some lunch con mi amigo Yoan Moncada. He laughs when he’s talked about on MLB network. Will post audio soon. pic.twitter.com/D0xSJf0bEQ
