White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Dealing with leg soreness

Moncada isn't starting Thursday against the Red Sox due to leg soreness, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. Manager Tony La Russa didn't sound too concerned about the severity of Moncada's injury but said that the team wanted to give the third baseman an extra day of rest prior to Friday's scheduled day off. Moncada should be considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's series opener against the Cubs.

White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Late lineup addition for Game 1

Moncada (leg) will start at third base and bat leadoff in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees. The 26-year-old was originally absent from the lineup but will end up starting with Tim Anderson (undisclosed) being a late scratch. Moncada was scratched Saturday due to a leg injury but made an appearance off the bench, and his return to the lineup Sunday confirms the injury isn't a serious issue.

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.

Fantasy baseball rest-of-season rankings: Yoan Moncada returns with a bang

Chicago White Sox 3B Yoan Moncada broke out as a legitimate fantasy star during the 2019 season when he hit .315 and slugged 25 home runs, and he looked like he was going to be a future top-30 fantasy option. We expected more than 10 stolen bases, but certainly could not complain about the overall production. Plus, since he was only 24 years old, most believed Moncada still had better statistical seasons ahead. Perhaps they still are, if Moncada's 2022 debut weekend is any early indication.

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: 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.
