The White Sox secured another young player to a long-term deal, agreeing to a five-year, $70 million extension with third baseman Yoan Moncada, according to a person with direct knowledge of the deal.
After struggling in 211 games from 2016-2018, the 24-year-old broke out last season, batting .315 with 25 home runs, 79 home runs and a .915 OPS for the White Sox.
Moncada becomes the latest White Sox youngster to sign a big deal, following in the footsteps of Eloy Jimenez in 2019 and Luis Robert this winter. Neither of them had played a game in the majors before the extensions.
Moncada was signed out of Cuba at age 19 by the Boston Red Sox and was traded to the White Sox as part of the package that sent Chris Sale to Boston in December 2016.
