Red Sox Shut Down Yoan Moncada With Sprained Thumb In Arizona Fall League


Yoan Moncada is done in the Arizona Fall League.

The Boston Red Sox shut down their top prospect Friday after the third baseman was diagnosed with a sprained left thumb. Moncada jammed it swinging at an inside pitch on Oct. 21.

Moncada went to the AFL after a lackluster call-up with the Red Sox in September. After going 4-for-19 with 12 strikeouts in eight major-league games, the 21-year-old posted a .292 average with a home run and three RBIs in 24 at-bats with the Surprise Saguaros.

Moncada will be shut down for two weeks and is expected to be ready for spring training.
