At the All-Star Futures Game at Petco Field in San Diego on Sunday, Yoan Moncada, the top prospect in the Boston Red Sox organization, was named the MVP.

After the Futures Game, Yoan Moncada caught the eye of many Major League fans. When you look at his stats, you can clearly see why he got so much attention.

The 21-year-old Moncada went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and stolen base to lead the World Team to an 11-3 victory over the U.S. Team.

The home run was particularly impressive considering he hit it right-handed. In the minors this season, the switch-hitting Moncada has been much more successful hitting left-handed.” As a switch-hitter, hitting a .254 batting average from the right side against lefty pitching is nothing compared to his .330 average hitting from the left side of the plate against righty pitching. Apparently, being just .054 above the Mendoza Line is enough for Moncada to impress the rest of the world.

Check out Moncada’s home run that ignited social media.

“In my future I see myself in the major leagues,” he said, according to “That’s my dream. We’ll see if it’s this year or the next. That’s not something I can control.”

Some fans don’t even think that the Red Sox should wait on the future, as in throwing Moncada and Andrew Benintendi, another top prospect for the Red Sox, into the mix sooner rather than later:

Moncada has a .312/.415/.532/.947 line with nine homers, 28 doubles, five triples, 49 RBIs and 40 steals in 77 games between High-A Salem and Double-A Portland this year.

Baseball America named Moncada the No. 1 MLB prospect on its 2016 midseason top 100 list.

Moncada won the MVP of the Futures Game, and he’s exactly that: the future, not the present. However, it shouldn’t be too much longer for him becoming the regular second or third baseman for the Red Sox, based on his minor-league performance this season, preferably the whole season.
