FanGraphs Audio: Luis Robert and the White Sox’ Covert Hitting Camp

Episode 797
The White Sox recently invited media to attend a hitting camp at their complex in Glendale, at which camp lead prospect analyst Eric Longenhagen — himself a well-regarded member of the media — observed Jake Burger, Yoan Moncada, and (in particular) Luis Robert all exhibiting impressive power on contact. Longenhagen waxes poetic on Robert’s talents in this edition of the program while also addressing the interesting case of Angels catching prospect Taylor Ward and the ascent of new Pirates prospect Colin Moran.

This was great, but you guys are killing me with the lack of Moncada information. Just a minute of observations… just 60 seconds.

Thanks for replying to my question about Moncada on Twitter. You guys are great. Carson seems to enjoy needling you more than anyone else. I have a feeling there is a lot of backstory to this.
