I would guess Moncada because of a sizable defensive advantage.  I think Abreu will out OPS Moncada, but it won't be able to make up for the defensive chasm between the two.

Wow!! What a difference a week makes. It wasn't that many games ago, that many were wondering if Moncada was a bust.

And those people were ignoring positive trends and just being reactionary. It should be obvious to anyone who watches him that Moncada will be a high WAR player despite his high strikeout rate

I agree with this, and I'll add that I think Abreu will be our ASG representative over Moncada.

Moncada currently has a 0.7 WAR edge on Abreu. Rest of season projections on FG have them essentially as equal players going forward.

What do you guys think?

Moncada has the built in advantage of playing  premium defensive position and being a really fast runner. Not really fair to ask who will have the higher WAR.

Exactly this. I would be stunned if Moncada doesn't have the higher WAR. I have never wavered on Yoan's talent, but I was skeptical on his average and still him, that said, over time, he's going to become just a total monster when you put it all together.  It's going to be fun.  If the pace of this rebuild gets sped up next year, I think he is going to be a huge reason why. Such a dynamic skill-set.
