Yoán Moncada News
Chicago White Sox infielder Yoan Moncada (knee) is missing from Sunday's lineup against the Detroit Tigers. The 28-year-old was forced Saturday's game after re-aggravating his right knee injury during a swing. Moncada should be considered day-to-day with his next day to return coming on Monday for the series opener versus the Kansas City Royals. The switch-hitter has hit well over the last month, batting .348 (32-for-92) with five home runs, eight doubles, and 18 RBI since Aug. 9. Lenyn Sosa will hit ninth and defend the hot corner on Sunday.
Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (knee) aggravated his right knee injury on a swing during Saturday's loss to the Detroit Tigers. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts during Saturday's 3-1 loss to Detroit. The 28-year-old was seen icing his knee in postgame. It's unclear when Moncada initially hurt his knee and is considered day-to-day. Moncada is slashing .260/.304/.412 with eight home runs, 34 RBI, 28 runs, and one stolen base over 77 games in 2023. Fantasy managers will have to check back on Sunday to see if Moncada is active for the series finale versus the Tigers before inserting him into their lineups.
Chicago White Sox infielder Yoan Moncada went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk as his team beat the Oakland A's 6-2 Saturday. Moncada's home run was a 409-foot blast and he now has five home runs this season. Battling injuries, he's only played in 66 games posting a slash line of .233/.277/.363 while driving in 26 runs in 240 trips to the plate. Since coming off the injured list a month ago, the 28-year-old has launched two dingers.
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.
