A few weeks after Cespedes made headlines by driving into New York Mets spring training in one tricked-out car after another for a period of six consecutive days, Red Sox top prospect Yoan Moncada had three vintage cars delivered to him Friday in Fort Myers, Fla., by Alex Vega, owner of the Miami-based "The Auto Firm."
Moncada, a 20-year-old second baseman who received a $31.5 million bonus when the Red Sox signed him out of Cuba last year, received a white, black and red-themed BMW X6M widebody and a white Lamborghini Huracan with black and metallic red accents. Both cars, like the BMW I8 he had already purchased from Vega, were customized with a "YM" logo to signify Moncada's initials.
According to Vega, the base price of the Lamborghini is $237,000, while the BMW X6M is $100,000.
Vega counts among his clients several major league players, including Cespedes. He said he's planning to delivers cars to Red Sox first baseman Hanley Ramirez, third baseman Pablo Sandoval, left fielder Rusney Castillo and utilityman Brock Holt on Monday.
