  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Scratched with leg injury

    Moncada was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Yankees due to a leg injury, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Moncada felt discomfort in his leg Thursday against the Royals but played through the issue in Friday's series opener against the Yankees. While he was a late scratch prior to Saturday's matchup, manager Tony La Russa said the 26-year-old will be available off the bench. Josh Harrison will shift to third base while Leury Garcia enters the lineup at the keystone.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Good to go

    Moncada (leg) will bat seventh and play third base Friday against the Yankees.

    Moncada played the entirety of Thursday's game against the Royals, but reports emerged after the contest that he'd picked up a minor leg issue. The problem evidently isn't a serious one, as he'll remain in the lineup Friday, though it's possible it will send him to the bench at some point in the next few days.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Dealing with minor leg issue

    Moncada felt discomfort in his leg during Thursday's game against the Royals, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Moncada didn't exit the game and went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts. Merkin added that Moncada was moving around fine after the game, and manager Tony La Russa also downplayed the severity of the problem. Given that context, the issue doesn't appear likely to cost Moncada time, but it will be worth confirming that he is in the lineup to start the White Sox's weekend series against the Yankees.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: On bench for afternoon game

    Moncada will sit for the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    Moncada finds himself on the bench for the second time in three games, though it's no surprise that he won't be asked to start twice in one day just over a week after returning from an oblique injury which cost him over a month at the start of the campaign. Josh Harrison starts at the hot corner in his absence, but Moncada will likely return for the nightcap.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Homers again Saturday

    Moncada went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a victory over the Yankees on Saturday.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Takes seat for day game

    Moncada is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    The White Sox and Guardians are wrapping up their series with a day game after a night game, so Moncada looks like he's just receiving some maintenance after he recently returned from the oblique injury that had sidelined him since late in Chicago's Cactus League slate. After being activated from the injured list Monday, Moncada went 2-for-8 with a walk and a run scored while starting at third base in both of the White Sox's first two games of the week.

    Moncada went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a walk Monday against the Guardians.

Moncada hit second in the White Sox lineup and is projected to remain there consistently to begin his campaign.

    Chicago has yet to unveil its lineup ahead of Monday's series opener against the Guardians, but manager Tony La Russa said Sunday that Moncada would slot in as the White Sox's No. 2 hitter in his 2022 debut, per Daryl Van Schouwen.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Monday debut confirmed

    White Sox manager Tony La Russa confirmed that Moncada (oblique) will be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's series opener against the Guardians, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    According to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, La Russa added that Moncada will be included in the lineup Monday as the No. 2 hitter, with Luis Robert moving into the cleanup spot to accommodate the 26-year-old for what will be his 2022 debut. Moncada was placed on the injured list after he strained his right oblique shortly before Opening Day, but he was cleared to start up a rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte in late April. Over his six games with the affiliate, Moncada hit .318 with two home runs, a double and two walks.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Likely back Monday

    Manager Tony La Russa said Wednesday that Moncada (oblique) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Monday, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    The 26-year-old has appeared in three games with Triple-A Charlotte since beginning his rehab assignment Saturday, and he'll apparently have a full week in the minors to get back up to speed. The oblique strain has sidelined Moncada for the first month of the season, but he's on track to make his season debut Monday versus the Guardians.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Remains on track

    Moncada (oblique) has gone 3-for-7 with a home run, two strikeouts and a walk across two games during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte.

    Moncada appears to be nearing full strength, as he attempted a stolen base Saturday and proceeded to slug a home run Sunday. Most importantly, all indications are that he's had no setbacks with his oblique to this point, as manager Tony La Russa reported that the infielder was able to move freely without discomfort, per Joey Pollizze of MLB.com. The team has yet to announce the date when Moncada will make his season debut, though the White Sox begin a series against the Cubs on Tuesday that could include his return if he continues on the same track.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Beginning rehab assignment Saturday

    Moncada (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Moncada resumed taking live batting practice Tuesday and is still experiencing some pain while swinging left-handed, but he's now been cleared to return to game action. The 26-year-old has been dealing with a right oblique strain for nearly a month, and he'll likely require several rehab games before he rejoins the White Sox. However, Moncada will likely have a chance to appear in major-league games as early as next week.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Could start rehab this weekend

    Moncada (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte this weekend if all goes well before then, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Moncada strained his right oblique shortly before Opening Day. As recently as Friday, he was still experiencing soreness while swinging, but it appears as though he's made enough progress that the White Sox believe he'll be able to begin a rehab assignment soon.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Swinging in cage

    Moncada (oblique) swung in a batting cage Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Moncada has yet to play a game this season while dealing with an oblique strain. He took light swings earlier in the week but has now advanced to "healthy" swings, per Van Schouwen's report. The third baseman still doesn't have a clear timetable for his return, however, and he'll likely need a rehab stint before being activated.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Still feeling soreness

    Monacada "is still feeling something" in his injured oblique while swinging left-handed, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Taking controlled swings

    Moncada (oblique) is now taking controlled swings, but not full-bore swings, Daryl Van Schouwen of The Chicago Sun-Times reports. "I just saw on the report, he's feeling better, but he'll make a move and might even sneeze and he'll feel something," manager Tony La Russa said. "You do something violent, take a swing and then you've got ... you've got to let that thing play out."

    Moncada still doesn't have a timetable to return. He's first going to need to take full swings, then live batting practice and perhaps a simulated game before going on a rehab assignment. While the progress is better than nothing, Moncada doesn't seem especially close to coming back.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Still experiencing discomfort

    Manager Tony La Russa said Saturday that Moncada (oblique) is still experiencing discomfort when making some movements required for defense, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Moncada has been sidelined since the start of the regular season due to a Grade 1 oblique strain and initially carried a recovery timetable of approximately three weeks. While it's still possible that his pain subsides in time to meet that estimate, La Russa didn't want to put a timetable on the next steps in Moncada's recovery until the 26-year-old is pain-free. Jake Burger has drawn most of the starts at third base early in the regular season and should continue to do so until Moncada is cleared to return.
