It is not uncommon for a hitter to bunt on his own with a runner on second and nobody out in a close game because his fundamental job is to move the runner over. Ground balls to second used to be routine, but bunts don't affect a player's stats. Obviously, it isn't that frequent anymore if the difference in bunt plate appearances between the White Sox and Astros nearly 150 games into the season is only 14.

Because the question seemed to be about bunting being something Moncada shouldn't waste his time practicing (it is extremely common for hitters to bunt in pregame batting practice), I took the Baseball Reference bunt appearances that show that Brantley has bunted more this year than Moncada.
I canít say I really care about who is or isnít ordering Moncada to bunt. If the manager is ordering it, I want the manager gone. If Moncada is bunting by himself and the manager isnít explaining to him that itís stupid as hell, I want the manager gone. Iím fine either way.
