- The Yoan Moncada era began in earnest Monday night in Greenville, where the 19-year-old Cuban super prospect (pictured, right) made his first appearance for the Drive, the Red Sox' Low-A affiliate. SoxProspects.com Staff Writer James Dunne recapped the game and Moncada's performance in Tuesday morning's Cup of Coffee.
- Alex Speier of the Boston Globe writes that Moncada's debut featured fanfare reserved only for the game's most highly touted prospects: t-shirt sales, a jersey authentification and a 15-minute pre-game press conference. Other players who have received similar treatment? Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper and Kris Bryant.
