Report: Yoan Moncada agrees to $30M-plus deal with Red Sox – CBSSports.com

Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada is close to finalizing a deal with the Red Sox, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider. Moncada has agreed to a signing bonus worth more than $30 million, according to MLB.com.

The 19-year-old Moncada was a highly sought after infield prospect. He worked out for several MLB teams in recent weeks, and Heyman reported over the weekend his reps were in talks with the Yankees, Padres and Red Sox.

The Dodgers were also considered among the teams interested in Moncada, who scouts see as a 20-home threat that could play second base, third base and in the outfield.

“He’s worth going way over your international spending pool, in my opinion,” one scouting director told MLB.com in November. “This game is about talent, and Moncada is the kind of talent worth the investment.”
