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.
