  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Three hits, three RBI

    Moncada went 3-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored Friday against the Tigers.

    Moncada snapped a four-game hitless streak with an RBI triple in the fifth inning. He chipped in an additional two knocks to tally his third multi-hit performance in 14 games since he returned from a back injury. Though it's been a limited sample due to the injury, Moncada has shown significant steps forward in limiting his strikeout rate (21.3 percent) while also hitting for power (.170 ISO) across 94 plate appearances this season.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Adds steal Wednesday

    Moncada went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Guardians.

    Moncada has gone 6-for-15 (.400) with three doubles and two RBI over his last four games. The steal was his first of the season, and he hasn't swiped more than three bags in any of the last four campaigns. The 27-year-old has regained a starting role at third base since returning from a back injury, and he's slashing .310/.344/.534 with two home runs, seven RBI, seven runs scored and seven doubles through 61 plate appearances this season.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: First hits since activation

    Moncada went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored Saturday against the Astros.

    Moncada returned from the injured list Friday after missing a month due to back discomfort. He went hitless in his return but appeared to have knocked off the rust Saturday by tallying his second multi extra-base hit game of the campaign. Moncada has been limited by a few different injuries in the first six weeks of the season, though he's managed to maintain a .319 average and .386 wOBA across 48 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Activated from injured list

    Moncada (back) was activated Friday from the 10-day injured list.

    Moncada is set to return to action for the White Sox in Friday night's series opener against the visiting Astros after missing a full month due to lingering lower-back discomfort. He was off to an encouraging start before the early season injury, boasting a .308/.325/.564 batting line with two home runs and four doubles through nine games. He'll hit cleanup Friday.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Likely back Friday

    Moncada (back) is expected to be activated from the injured list Friday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol had hinted previously that it was a good possibility, and Moncada not being in Triple-A Charlotte's lineup Thursday is a good indication his time there on a rehab assignment is over. The third baseman has been on the shelf since mid-April with a nagging back injury. He had an .889 OPS with two homers in nine games before getting hurt.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Good chance to return over weekend

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol told reporters before Tuesday's game against the Royals that there's a good chance Moncada (back) returns over the weekend series against the Astros, Scott Merkin of reports.

    Grifol seemed to rule out Moncada returning for the series against the Royals, but it seems likely the infielder will be back in the lineup by the end of the weekend. Moncada has been out since the middle of April with his back injury, and he should resume everyday duties once healthy.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Might not return until this weekend

    Moncada (back) could remain on his rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte a bit longer, with a return from the 10-day injured list coming perhaps this weekend for the beginning of the White Sox's homestand, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Manager Pedro Grifol said Sunday that he wouldn't rule out Moncada being activated ahead of Monday's series opener in Kansas City, but all signs point to the third baseman continuing his rehab assignment a little while longer. Moncada has gone 5-for-9 with a home run in his first three rehab games, so his bat looks ready. However, the White Sox want to make sure the back injury that has kept him out since mid-April is behind him.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Could be activated Monday

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said that he hasn't ruled out the possibility of Moncada (back) being activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Monday's game in Kansas City, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "[Monday is] pretty soon [for a return], but we have to communicate with him after [Sunday's] game to see how he feels," Grifol said of Moncada.

    Moncada has been on the shelf since April 14 due to a disc issue, but the 27-year-old was cleared to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte earlier this weekend and has gone 2-for-6 with a walk and an RBI through his first two contests with the affiliate. Though Grifol's comments suggest that it's more likely that the team will wait until later in the upcoming week to activate Moncada, the White Sox could expedite the infielder's return if he checks out fine after playing seven innings in the field for Charlotte on Sunday. Until the White Sox formally reinstate Moncada, Hanser Alberto should serve as the team's primary option at third base.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Beginning assignment Friday

    Moncada (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The team hasn't indicated how long it plans on keeping Moncada on assignment, but it's a promising sign nonetheless for the 27-year-old third baseman. Moncada was slashing .308/.325/.564 through 40 plate appearances before back soreness forced him onto the injured list April 11.
