 Jesse Sanchez of has the story:

"Yoan Moncada is eager to begin his professional baseball career in the United States, but he is keeping his signing options open.

'My goal is to sign with a team soon, start training with them, and make it to the Major Leagues as fast as I can with whichever team that might be,' Moncada said in Spanish to in his first interview since arriving in the United States in late November. 'I know I'm going to do the best I can for as long as I can in this sport.'

Moncada, 19, has worked out privately for the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, Padres, Giants, Rangers, Rays, Tigers and Brewers. Other teams are expected to join the mix now that Moncada is eligible to sign."

In other words, this kid's "so hot right now", quoting Mugatu from Zoolander.  Trust me, Yoan Moncada is!

It's becoming more and more evident that a guy like James Shields may not be in the cards for the Yanks.  If that's truly the case, the Yankees should at least snag Moncada.  They have been considered the front runners for a while now... the Yanks can't let Moncada get away.
