As you’ve probably heard by now, the Yoan Moncada Era officially began Friday for the Boston Red Sox.
The infielder was called up to the big leagues, where he’s expected to play a lot at third base. He also has the ability to put up big numbers at the plate — .910 OPS in 45 games with Double-A Portland this season — and on the basepaths with his speed.
Hear what NESN’s Adam Pellerin and Jim Rice had to say about Moncada in the video from “Red Sox First Pitch” above.
