Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoán Moncada releases single ‘Desastre Personal’

In the batter's box, Yoán Moncada seeks hits. 

Away from the diamond, he makes them.

The Chicago White Sox third baseman has released a single called "Desastre Personal" alongside artists El Chacal and Lenier. 

The song has plenty of horns and drums, with upbeat lyrics; in the music video (directed by Adrian Sanchez Avila), Moncada dons a floral outfit and dances. Bikini-wearing women beckon, and a White Sox jersey makes an appearance at the 1:24 mark. 

“It started out as a hobby, meaning I always loved to sing at home,” Moncada said in Spanish, according to MLB.com, which reported that the Cuba native worked on more than a dozen songs this offseason. “But one day, I published a song on Instagram singing one of Lenier’s songs, a Cuban singer, and he responded to me! We talked about getting together for a song when I was in Miami, that opened the door for me. That’s how I got my first song.”

Moncada struggled last season, striking out in 31 percent of his at-bats with a .702 on-base plus slugging percentage. His best year was 2019, when he batted .315 with a .915 OPS and 25 home runs.
