The Los Angeles Dodgers are seemingly all-in on Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada, working out the coveted 19-year-old middle infielder on Thursday as they continue their pursuit of the coveted prospect.

Moncada has three or four other private workouts scheduled over the next week, so by no means is anything assured in negotiations with him. He's likely to command a signing bonus in the $30-50 million range to go along with a $60-80 million salary, however, so it makes sense that the deep-pocketed Dodgers would be a favorite for his services.
As of now, along with the Dodgers, The Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs, Rangers, Padres, Giants, Tigers, Braves, Brewers, Rays and Angels are among the teams that have either scouted Moncada or invited him in for private workouts, according to multiple sources and media reports.
