White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Sitting out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (undisclosed) won't start in Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

Moncada has been nursing general soreness for about a week, so manager Rick Renteria has elected to give the 25-year-old his second breather of the season with the White Sox and Tigers wrapping up their series with a day game after a night game. Ryan Goins will man third base in Moncada's stead and bat ninth in the Chicago lineup. Moncada should be back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Cardinals, assuming that series isn't postponed due to several St. Louis players and staff members having tested positive for COVID-19 within the past two weeks.

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

Moncada may not be in the lineup Wednesday since he's been battling soreness for about a week, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The 25-year-old has started the past 15 games at third base and went 0-for-5 Tuesday, ending a modest eight-game hit streak. It doesn't appear to be a serious concern, so Moncada shouldn't be out long, assuming he's held out of Wednesday's starting nine.

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

Moncada batted leadoff for the first time this season in Saturday's 7-1 loss to Cleveland. He went 1-for-5 with a solo home run.

Moncada has been entrenched at the second spot in the batting order -- that's where he primarily hit during his breakout 2019 season -- and no reason was given for him replacing Luis Robert, who hit well at leadoff the previous seven games. The home run was Moncada's third and extended his hitting streak to six games. He's hit safely in 11 of 14 games.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Clubs second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 3-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Monday's 6-4 win over the Brewers.

He blasted his second homer of the year off Corey Knebel in the ninth inning to give the White Sox an insurance run in the comeback win. Moncada has reached base in all nine games he's played to begin the season, slashing .351/.442/.595, and while the sample is very small, his 14.0 percent walk rate would be a career high, offering a very encouraging sign of skill growth for the 25-year-old.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Twins.

Moncada is off to a strong start through the season's first two games (4-for-9 with a home run, two doubles and four RBI), but he'll receive a breather Sunday. Danny Mendick will receive the start at the hot corner and bat eighth in the series finale.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Enjoys productive Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and a double in Friday's loss to Minnesota.

Moncada set up Chicago's initial run with a first-inning double and knotted the score in the second frame with a three-run homer off Minnesota ace Jose Berrios. Moncada missed most of summer camp after testing positive for COVID-19, but the time away appears to have done little to slow his momentum following a breakout 2019 season.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (illness) was activated from the injured list Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Moncada missed the start of summer camp after testing positive for COVID-19, but he appears on track to be ready for Friday's season opener after responding well to activity over the past week. He hit .315 with 25 homers and 10 steals in 132 games last season.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Responds well to activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada had no ill effects Tuesday after playing five innings during an exhibition game against the Cubs on Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Moncada, who arrived at summer camp last Thursday after testing positive for COVID-19, has been working hard to get himself ready to play Opening Day. He responded well during Tuesday's workout and could bat second and play third base when the White Sox kick off the regular season at home against the Twins on Friday. The White Sox have yet to officially activate him from the COVID-19 injured list, but that merely looks to be a formality at this point.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: In exhibition lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada will bat second and play third base in Monday's exhibition game against the Cubs.

Moncada's availability for Opening Day has been in some doubt, as he only just arrived at camp Thursday after testing positive for COVID-19. He reportedly didn't experience many symptoms and is seemingly in decent shape as he's set for game action just four days later. Whether or not he'll be ready for an everyday role beginning with the first game of the regular season Friday against the Twins remains to be seen.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: May appear in exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Saturday that Moncada could make an appearance in one of three exhibition games scheduled this week, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Moncada joined Chicago's camp Friday after testing negative for COVID-19 but has only performed strength and conditioning exercises with coaches. An appearance in Sunday night's exhibition against the Cubs may be a stretch, but Renteria said Moncada is moving well and could appear in Monday's second exhibition against the Cubs or Wednesday's against the Brewers.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Returns from COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada told reporters that he had tested positive for COVID-19, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.

Moncada said he was largely asymptomatic as he returned to the White Sox on Thursday. He did not participate in the intrasquad game but did take batting and infield practice. The third baseman also executed strength and conditioning activity. Moncada has not played an organized baseball game in over four months, so it's unclear what type of shape he'll be in when the White Sox open the regular season next Friday.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Reports to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (undisclosed) reported to camp Thursday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Moncada has been cleared to join the White Sox for workouts after missing the start of camp for undisclosed reasons. It's unclear how prepared for the season the 25-year-old is at this point -- especially after he described his hitting activity at home in Miami during the shutdown as "limited" -- but he'll have a full week to try and get ready for game action.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Uncertain status for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox hitting coach Frank Menechino is uncertain how many at-bats Moncada (undisclosed) will need to be ready for the regular season, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Moncada, who was placed on the injured list Friday, could be eligible to return before the regular season starts. He has not yet reported to camp and described his hitting activity at home in Miami during the shutdown as "limited." Menechino was at first reticent to estimate a number of at-bats Moncada needs once he's been activated but then offered a timeline to Scott Merkin of MLB.com. "I think 10, 15 at-bats to see where he's at. And then, probably, I'd say 20 at-bats to get him started in the right direction," Menechino said. "As far as days, I don't know what he's able to do while he's not here." If Moncada is unable to start the season, Leury Garcia or Danny Mendick could fill in at third base.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Placed on 10-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada (undisclosed) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday.

Moncada was absent from workouts at the beginning of the week, and he'll now be sidelined for at least 10 days for an undisclosed reason. The team didn't provide a reason for his placement on the injured list, and it's unclear when Moncada could be ready to return to the field.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Absent from workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada was absent from the White Sox's workout Monday, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

The team can't legally confirm whether or not Moncada's absence is related to a positive coronavirus test. It's not clear when he's expected to rejoin his teammates.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Inks five-year $70M extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada and the White Sox agreed to a five-year $70 million contract extension Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old's new deal includes a sixth year club option worth $25 million. The contract would potentially buy out two free-agent years and if his player option is exercised, Moncada will hit the open market after his age 30 season, according to Rosenthal. The switch-hitting third baseman will look to improve upon a 2019 campaign in which he hit .315/.367/.548 with 25 home runs, 83 runs scored and 79 RBI throughout 132 games.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Prefers batting second
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada said he's not a fan of batting leadoff and prefers to hit second in the order, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

As manager Rick Renteria considers lineup possibilities, particularly the leadoff spot, he'll consider a player's comfort level. Moncada, who profiles as a candidate anywhere in the top four of the order, had a monstrous 2019 while hitting mostly out of the second spot. More than batting-order position, it was a change in plate approach that made the most difference. Moncada attacked hittable pitches earlier in his at-bats, resulting in a significant rise in production and a dramatic decrease in strikeouts (from 217 to 154). It should also be noted that his .315/.367/.548 slash was fueled by an astronomical .406 BABIP, which led MLB, so fantasy owners may want to factor in some regression in batting average. Still, the 24-year-old third baseman cranked 25 home runs and vows to steal more than the 10 bases he had in 2019.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Hits pinch-hit homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada hit a pinch-hit home run in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers. He went 2-for-4 in the afternoon contest.

Moncada launched his 25th home run and has hit safely in 20 of his last 22 games (40-for-92, .435). He's finishing up the season with an 1.111 OPS during September, which alongside fellow young building blocks Tim Anderson (.985) and Eloy Jimenez (1.107) makes the White Sox an interesting team to watch in 2020.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Sitting for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada will sit for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Detroit.

Moncada hits the bench after going 2-for-4 with a run and a pair of singles in the first game of the day. Danny Mendick gets the start at third base.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Multi-hit streak continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moncada went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored Sunday in the White Sox's 6-3 loss to the Tigers.

Moncada batted .500 during the series in Detroit and will head into the final week of the regular season with a 10-game hitting streak. With a blistering .444/.489/.691 line thus far in September, Moncada has boosted his season average from .291 to .316, vaulting him into third place in the American League.
