White Sox 2B Moncada hurts knee in outfield collision

White Sox 2B Moncada hurts knee in outfield collision

As it was, both White Sox players had to leave a home game against the Blue Jays in the sixth inning, with Moncada requiring the assistance of a cart.

X-rays for Moncada's right leg came back negative.

He and Moncada were chasing Darwin Barney's bases-loaded blooper when the second baseman kneed a sliding Garcia in the head. As we get the evaluations, we'll know exactly where we might sit. "I didn't remember what happened until the doctors started asking me questions here, and then I saw the video".

He said around 30 people had been injured and casualty numbers were likely to rise. Both are dead, a local police spokesperson told AFP .

Even though neither player walked away unscathed, this collision could have definitely been much worse for both guys, and both the team and fans should be breathing a sigh of relief that the damage was minimized here. Obviously, a blow to the head, you're concerned about a concussion. Garcia remembers calling for the ball, but wasn't quibbling about Moncada not hearing his voice over the crowd while sprinting full speed, especially not when they were in adjacent beds in the training room.

Garcia walked off on his own power. The outfielder said his condition had improved as the night went on. He's batting.258 with two homers and 11 RBIs in 40 games with the White Sox.

Blue Jays: RHP Aaron Sanchez, who is on the disabled list because of a recurrence of a blister on the middle finger of his right hand, is nearing a return. He added that both of his payers were "alert and well", and were smiling after the game.
