The final stage of the Yoan Moncada sweepstakes may be at hand, according to the most recent reports:
- Moncada’s recent workout with the Yankees “sounds like” the last he’ll put on in advance of negotiations, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports on Twitter. The “expectation” is that Moncada will sign with a team next week.
- Some offers are already in hand but more are still expected to come in, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times tweets. A signing is expected “soon,” which would allow Moncada to make into camp on time (or, perhaps, with a short delay).
- The Rays may put in an offer for Moncada, Topkin tweets, but the expectation is that their number will not be competitive.
