Newly acquired top prospect Yoan Moncada was one of 15 White Sox minor leaguers to take part in a three day early Spring Training camp in Gendale, Arizona. It was the first close look Sox fans have had at the No. 1 rated prospect in baseball. It’s also the first time we have seen pictures and video of Moncada working out in Sox gear.

-Just the sight of players out getting reps and taking swings gets the baseball juices flowing. Early January and it feels like the season is right around the corner. Reality is Spring Training doesn’t officially start for five weeks.

-A lot of good stuff here from new Sox player development director Chris Getz on some of the prospects who attended the camp.

-Merkin reported that Moncada went yard to straight away center from the left side during one of his sessions. Nothing to really write home about, but a little flicker of hope and excitement for Sox fans eager to see the blue chip prospect continue to develop.

-Highly recommend following Future Sox (@futuresox) weekly farm updates. Here’s the latest one, from December 29th. They’re the best in the biz to follow Sox prospect news.
