UPDATE (10:21 p.m.): It appears Yoan Moncada avoided a serious injury Monday night.
ORIGINAL STORY: There was a scary moment during the Chicago White Sox’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.
Blue Jays second baseman Darwin Barney hit a pop fly into shallow right field, causing White Sox second baseman Yoan Moncada to give chase. Right fielder Willy Garcia came racing in, too, and the two players were unable to avoid a gruesome collision. Moncada attempted to leap over Garcia, but his knee connected with the right fielder’s head.
While Garcia got up under his own power, Moncada was unable to put weight on his right leg and was carted off the field.
Moncada was one of the top prospects in baseball when the White Sox acquired him from the Boston Red Sox on Dec. 7. And while the phenom initially struggled at the plate, he has provided some highlights with his glove.
