Rebuilding Red Sox Sign Cuban Star

The Boston Red Sox made more noise in the offseason when they signed the switch-hitting Cuban powerhouse, Yoan Moncada two weeks ago. Boston just continues to retool their team after finishing last in the AL East in 2014. The 19-year-old Cuban outfielder will have the largest signing bonus in MLB history pending his physical exams. Moncada agreed to a deal that is worth $31.5 million which is by far the biggest bonus among any international free agent.

If Moncada can land a spot on Boston’s Opening Day roster, he will join a superior lineup that already consists of David “Big Papi” Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez. However, some beat reporters now claim that with all the offensive tools that the Red Sox have compiled, they have yet to address their weak, young pitching staff. However, the Red Sox’s chances of reclaiming the AL East title have vastly improved compared to last year.

Yoan Moncada has been described as one of the more powerful, young outfielders with great speed, an exceptional throwing arm and a fantastic swing. For his first showcase, about 65 scouts from around Major League Baseball came to determine whether this supercharged prospect was living up to the speculation around him. I think we all know the conclusion to that story. Please comment on who you think will win the AL East division title.
