The White Sox are seemingly limping to the finish line as the injuries only continue.
This time, it’s third baseman Yoan Moncada, who exited Thursday night’s game in Baltimore with left hamstring tightness. The team is currently listing him as day-to-day, though his status for this weekend is currently unknown.
Moncada made a strong defensive play early in Thursday’s contest but came up limping afterward. He managed to remain in the game for several innings until he was eventually replaced in the lineup by Romy Gonzalez in the fifth. Unfortunately, Moncada is no stranger to lower-body injuries, which makes this somewhat concerning even though it doesn’t appear to be too serious.
Though coming up clutch several times as of late, Moncada has struggled offensively this season. The 27-year-old is hitting an abysmal .197/.269/.313 (58-for-294) with 7 home runs, 40 RBI, and .581 OPS over 80 games. Should he miss some time, we will likely see Josh Harrison fill in at the hot corner as we did last night, with Gonzalez sliding over to second base.
