Moncada is possible leadoff man for White Sox

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Expectations are already high for prized youngster Yoan Moncada of the Chicago White Sox. And as he prepares for his first full season in the major leagues, he could find himself in an important role on opening day.

The 22-year-old from Cuba has spent this month as the leadoff hitter for the rebuilding White Sox after he began spring training batting fifth, sixth and seventh. Moncada welcomes being in the top spot, and the White Sox hope to take advantage of his speed and potential to reach base on a consistent basis.

"I like being the first batter. I can show more of my skills. Getting on base, I'll see more pitches, and that's what I prefer," Moncada said, speaking in Spanish.
