Yohan Moncada

Moncada camino a Boston por $31.5 millones

Nuevamente el manejo del elenco New York Yankees y el espíritu del padre, el legendario George Steinbrenner, por los hermanos Hal y Hank Steinbrenner queda en entredicho, cuando este lunes el elenco de la Babel de Hierro de la Liga Americana del béisbol de Grandes Ligas, pierde otra batalla monetaria, con el anuncio de la firma del joven cubano Yohan Manuel Moncada Olivera, ante su archirrival de la misma División del Este, el Boston Red Sox.

Report: Yoan Moncada to Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox reportedly have landed the latest free-agent prize out of Cuba, coming to terms with 19-year-old switch-hitting infielder Yoan Moncada.

Moncada's representative David Hastings said there is no signed agreement yet but anticipates it will be done soon. A Red Sox team source also told ESPNBoston.com that no deal had been reached.

While the Yoan Moncada deal represents a coup for the Red Sox, it's also a very big and expensive gamble, writes Gordon Edes. Story
