Yoán Moncada News
Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (foot) remains out of the starting lineup on Thursday against the Minnesota Twins. Moncada fouled a ball off the top of his foot on Tuesday and will miss his second straight game, but he's considered day-to-day right now. It's been a tough year for the 27-year-old Cuban, as he's hitting just .212/.278/.358 with 12 home runs, 49 RBI, 39 runs scored and two stolen bases in 372 at-bats in an injury-riddled campaign. Josh Harrison will get another start at the hot corner on Thursday and will hit eighth against Twins right-hander Louie Varland. Harrison has gone 10-for-27 (.370) in his last nine games, but he has very little pop and will be a low-upside DFS play.
Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (foot) is day-to-day with a bone bruise on the top of his foot and is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Minnesota Twins, according to acting manager Miguel Cairo. Moncada fouled a ball off the top of his foot on Tuesday and will undergo X-rays. The 27-year-old switch-hitting Dominican is having a tough 2022 campaign, hitting just .212/.278/.358 with 12 home runs, 49 RBI, 39 runs scored and two stolen bases in 372 at-bats. With Moncada out of the lineup, Josh Harrison is starting at third base and batting eighth against Twins right-hander Josh Winder. Harrison has gone 3-for-10 but hasn't driven in a run or scored a run in the last week.
Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Seattle Mariners. He returned from the injured list on Monday, but didn't play in that contest. The switch-hitter will bat second and play third base against right-hander Logan Gilbert on Tuesday. Moncada is slashing .197/.269/.313 with seven homers, 40 RBI this season. Fantasy managers can stream Moncada at their own risk, but there should be better options available.
Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada produced mixed results during 144 games in 2021. Although he walked 13.6% of the time, got on base at a .375 clip, and scored 74 runs, he went deep just 14 times, hit .263, and stole just three bases, along with a disappointing 61 RBI. After smashing 25 HRs during a breakout 2019 season, in which he posted an elite 12.2 Barrel%, Moncada's barrel rate dipped to 6.2% in 2020, followed by an 8.2% mark last season. His 13% HR/FB in 2021 implies he didn't have much bad luck, and his below-average 20.3 FB% isn't a good sign of more home runs to come. Moncada hit .315 in 2019, but his average exit velocity was 93.1 MPH, compared to 90.1 MPH last season. His 2021 25.5 K% doesn't help in that area, and the 26-year-old's .350 BABIP gives reason to believe his batting average will take a hit if he can't start annihilating the ball again. Even though his sprint speed is still in the 67th percentile, he's swiped just three bases his past 196 games, implying his days of 10-plus steals are over. Moncada's excellent on-base ability will provide fantasy managers with enough runs, but without extra-base power, his RBI total will be suboptimal. His current ADP of 142 isn't ideal, and drafters are better off waiting for Justin Turner at pick 154.
