Moncada reportedly works out for Dodgers
Highly-sought-after Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada worked out for the Dodgers on Monday morning, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reported on Twitter, adding that the Dodgers “remain a significant threat because of deep pockets.”
This is just the latest in a slew of showcases held for Moncado, who previously worked out for the Brewers, Rangers, Giants, Yankees, Red Sox and Padres in Florida, MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez wrote. The Rays, Cubs and Phillies are also showing strong interest for the 19-year-old, according to Sanchez.
Moncada could garner a signing bonus of up to $40 million, which would become nearly an $80 million commitment due to the dollar-for-dollar overage tax on teams exceeding their spending pools. Before signing, though, Moncada must be cleared by the Office of Foreign Assets Control.
