White Sox's Garcia on DL after colliding with Moncada — Baseball

White Sox's Garcia on DL after colliding with Moncada — Baseball

After White Sox rookie second baseman Yoan Moncada was carted off the field in the sixth inning Monday night, a groan rang out at Guaranteed Rate Field as the crowd viewed a replay of his ugly outfield collision with right fielder Willy Garcia.

The White Sox announced Moncada is day to day with a right knee contusion, while Garcia suffered a head contusion. Despite losing two players to injury, the White Sox feel pretty fortunate given how uncertain everything looked at the outset. "But once they brought me in here, they told me it was nothing serious, and I (felt) relieved". Indiana began its rebuilding project in earnest after agreeing to trade four-time All-Star Paul George to Oklahoma on June 30. I didn't think anything specific, but I thought it was more serious. Hopefully he's okay and we see him back on the field soon. Since the start of June, he has posted an 8.87 ERA with a.324 opponents average and a 2.06 WHIP.

"It's huge for us", Davidson said of the victory. That's why I'm kind of sore right now. Only six players and two starters remain from the Pacers' playoff roster.

Miami right-hander Edinson Volquez will require Tommy John surgery for the second time, ending his season and potentially his career. But he liked that both Moncada and Garcia were going all-out. The final blow came when Davidson hit a two-out single to score Garcia.

Abreu noted that despite their recent struggles, he's proud of the way this team continues to fight for every win.

Moncada said the impact was just above the knee on his muscle, helping him to avoid a more serious injury. Engel was sore after he collided with a fence post while trying to track down a Josh Donaldson home run.

The Jays went deep three times early off Chicago starting James Shields to pace their attack.

The Minnesota Wild agreed to terms with standout forward Mikael Granlund on a three-year, $17.25 million contract.

Smith and Liriano were reportedly both good team guys, but the lefty it appears will be especially missed around the clubhouse.
