Yoan Moncada has gotten off to a slow start at the plate in the majors, but his cold bat hasn’t affected his glove one bit.
The Chicago White Sox phenom showed he can flash the leather Saturday night on back-to-back plays during the fourth inning of the White Sox’s game against the Cleveland Indians.
First, Erik Gonzalez rolled a ground ball up the middle that was ticketed for center field, but Moncada ranged to the other side of the second base bag, scooped the ball and fired across his body in one motion for the out.
In Cleveland’s very next at-bat, Bradley Zimmer attempted to drag bunt down the first base line, but Moncada raced in, gloved the ball and flipped it to first baseman Jose Abreu to record back-to-back web gems.
“Wow” is right.
