Podcast: Moncada & Rodon off to hot start

The Rundown:

  • The Chicago White Sox split a two-game series at Cleveland thanks to the hot hitting of Yoan Moncada and great pitching from Carlos Rodon. We break down what’s working for them early in 2019.
  • Yolmer Sanchez and Daniel Palka are not playing well. With the White Sox needing to add Ervin Santana soon to the roster, is Sanchez or Palka at risk of losing their spot on the 25-man? 
  • We preview the first home series in 2019 for the White Sox as Seattle heads to the South Side.

I think Moncada is gonna have a breakout year, but the White Sox will fall short a Manny Machado caliber player to threaten the top rivals in the Central


Regarding Jay, Van Schouwen indicated doctors would re-evaluate him. Doesn’t sound like he is close to playing



Moncada has raised his rest of season Steamer and ZiPS wRC+ projections by about 5 points. Nice work in five games.
