The Chicago White Sox seem to be changing gears this season. The shift from rebuilding to building a competitive team has started. The ability to sign Yoan Moncada to an extension now is perfect timing.
The Chicago White Sox look to be guilt for sustained success on paper. The team has locked up their young talent for years to come. After a breakout campaign in 2019, the team signed Yoan Moncada to a five-year, $70-million extension. This seems like a large sum of money, but in reality, the Chicago White Sox are getting a huge discount.
The Chicago White Sox acquired Moncada from the Red Sox in their blockbuster trade involving Chris Sale. At the time, Moncada was one of the top prospects in the minors. He did not fully live up to expectations when he first arrived in the majors, but last season was a different story.
