You want to trade the top rated prospect for a Holds guy? On general principals I would not bother and just take the chance Moncada does well. Holds guys are a dime a dozen.

I think Moncada is going to be another over hyped so called top prospect. Sure he the crap out of the ball in the minors. That next step is huge. He isn't facing minor leaguers anymore . So far and yes a small sample size but look at his numbers and look at last year same amount of at bats. He actually did better last year. He had more K's but his BA was twice what it is . Same with his OBP . Of course he'll get some hits. But I think its going to be a while if at all to see anything worth losing proven players to keep him. I would love to see all the offers that were passed up because managers thought the had the next Mike Trout.

You can say that about every hyped prospect. They are all the next Trout or Kershaw until they aren't. It does look like Moncada is a bust in the small sample size so far, but I still would not trade him for a middle reliever. In standard 5x5 categories league, Bettances is not even fantasy worthy imo. And he is not even pitching all that well to boot.

I was so fixated on Moncada I forgot to include that I would not trade Moncada for Betances. I own him in one league and every since Chapman has come back he has pitched like crap .Good call ;-D

Moncada is years away if ever helping anybody in fantasy .
Yes I do think he is overrated
Screw what numbers he put up in the minors .
This is a big boys game .
