White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Drives in three in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 9-1 win over the Royals.

Moncada got the fireworks started in the first inning when the White Sox scored eight runs. He plated Tim Anderson and Nick Madrigal with a two-run double that turned out to be the winning hit, then finished off the eight-run inning with an RBI single. The third baseman is slashing .262/.360/.393, and that's with a heady .357 BABIP.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Cranks three-run shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in Thursday's win over Tigers in the second leg of the doubleheader.

The 25-year-old smacked a three-run home run off Alex Lange in the sixth inning. Moncada is currently slashing .272/.375/.420 as he continues to bounce back from a poor 2020 campaign.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Records three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rangers.

Moncada reached base three times and also scored the first run of the game after a wild pitch from Kyle Gibson with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth. The Cuban infielder has notched back-to-back games with three hits and extended his hitting streak to five games.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Homers, drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk and three RBI in Friday's 9-7 win over the Rangers.

Moncada knocked RBI singles in both the third and fourth innings before going deep for a solo blast in the eighth. It was his first multi-hit game since April 12, raising his season average to .234 in 64 at-bats.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Resting for day game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.

Chicago and Boston are closing out their series with a game that starts at 11:10 a.m. local time, so White Sox manager Tony La Russa will give Moncada a breather after the third baseman played both ends of Sunday's doubleheader. After going 2-for-5 with a walk between the two contests, Moncada's season slash line now sits at a pedestrian .200/.318/.273 over 66 plate appearances. Jake Lamb will spell him at the hot corner Monday.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Plates run Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Thursday's loss against Cleveland.

Moncada has been struggling offensively to begin the year, but at least he managed to contribute here, with his RBI single scoring Tim Anderson in the bottom of the first inning. Even so, Moncada is hitting just .191 with a .573 OPS through his first 54 plate appearances, and his strikeout rate is just as high as it was last year, when he struggled to a .225/.320/.385 line in the coronavirus-shortened campaign.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Homers in home opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada was back in the lineup Thursday and went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 6-0 victory over Kansas City.

Moncada returned to the lineup after Wednesday's rest day and slotted in at cleanup for the White Sox in their home opener. It's been a sluggish start for Moncada, who entered Thursday's game with a .182 batting average and 12 strikeouts over 22 at-bats. The one-day breather may have helped, as he did not strike out for the first time in seven games. Moncada has been manager Tony La Russa's early choice to fill in as the cleanup hitter, replacing Eloy Jimenez (pectoral).

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Not in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

Moncada went 4-for-22 with a double, three runs and 12 strikeouts while starting the first six games of the season. Jake Lamb will start at third base Wednesday, batting second.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (leg) is in the lineup for Saturday's spring game against the Rockies, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Moncada left Friday's game shortly after fouling a ball off his leg but will be back in action just one day later. The issue shouldn't impact the third baseman's availability for Opening Day.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Exits Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada exited Friday's spring game against the Brewers prior to the bottom of the sixth inning, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Moncada fouled a ball off his right leg in the top of the sixth frame Friday and was visited by a trainer, but he was able to stay in the game and hit a home run on the next pitch. It's not yet clear whether his departure was due to injury, but his status could be worth monitoring in the coming days. Prior to leaving the game, Moncada went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and one strikeout.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Extends on-base streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 2-for-3 with a double and run scored in Saturday's spring game against Cleveland.

Moncada has reached base safely via a hit or walk in 12 straight Cactus League games, which is a welcome sign after a disappointing 2020. He tested positive for COVID-19 last year and had lingering fatigue because of it, finishing with a .705 OPS. This spring, Moncada is 10-for-32 with four extra-base hits and six walks.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Plays field Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada started at third base and went 1-for-2 with two runs scored in Tuesday's spring game against the Rangers.

Moncada appeared for the first time in the field since he experienced arm soreness over the final week of February. "His stroke looks really good on both sides of the plate," manager Tony La Russa told Scott Merkin of MLB.com. "He's moving well." Moncada was limited to DH duties but should be back to normal at third base.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Draws start in field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (arm) will start at third base and will bat second in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Rangers.

After reporting to camp last week with a sore arm, Moncada was limited to designated-hitter duties in his Cactus League debut Sunday against the Brewers. He played all six innings of the White Sox's 7-2 loss, going 0-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored. The White Sox were apparently satisfied with how Moncada came out of that contest, so he'll now take on a defensive role in his second game of the spring. The 25-year-old looks like he'll face no further limitations due to the arm injury heading into Opening Day.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Steals bag, scores Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (arm) went 0-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's spring game against the Brewers.

Moncada's experiencing soreness in his arm that's preventing him from playing the field, but he did work as the designated hitter in the Cactus League opener. And his legs appear fine as he reached on a fielder's choice, then stole a base and came home on Adam Engel's two-run home run.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Serving as DH in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (arm) will bat second as the designated hitter in Sunday's spring opener against the Brewers, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The 25-year-old has been limited at the start of camp due to arm soreness, but he's still able to hit with no issues. Manager Tony La Russa previously said Moncada was set to resume throwing and could be playing the field early this week, so he should be back on the field at full strength in the near future.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Able to hit in intrasquad action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (arm) won't take the field in Saturday's intrasquad contest but will serve as a designated hitter, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Moncada came into camp limited by a bit of arm soreness, but the issue doesn't appear to be a particularly serious one. He'll be able to hit Saturday and could take the field as soon as Sunday or Monday.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Could return soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Tony La Russa said Thursday that Moncada (arm) could play third base as early as Sunday or Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Moncada has been limited early in camp due to arm soreness, but the team hasn't expressed much concern regarding the issue. While La Russa said that the White Sox could elect to keep him sidelined to begin Cactus League play, he should resume throwing soon.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Slowed by soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada's throwing has been limited thus far in camp due to arm soreness, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

While it would certainly be preferable for Moncada to show up to camp without an injury, the White Sox don't seem overly concerned about this particular issue, framing it as simply an effort to err on the side of caution as it's still February. Moncada should have plenty of time to get up to speed by the start of the regular season unless the arm issue develops into something more serious.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Lifts first homer of September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 9-5 win over the Cubs.

The long ball was his first since Aug. 17. Moncada has been open about his struggles with the lingering effects of having COVID-19 in July, but he told James Fegan of The Athletic that "it's improving" and that his energy level has been up the last two weeks.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: On bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

Yolmer Sanchez will take over at third base and bat ninth against right-hander Michael Lorenzen. Moncada had a triple in Saturday's game, ending a five-game hitless slide. The 25-year-old has a .192/.306/.269 line in the month of September; it seems he's still not feeling back to full strength after his bout with COVID-19 earlier this year.
