Yoan Moncada Carted Off With Bruised Knee After Colliding With Teammate's Head

As the ball descended, Garcia slid to avoid Moncada, who tried to jump over the outfielder but didn't quite make it. Moncada's right knee hit Garcia in the head and both went down immediately.

Team meeting: Jose Abreu helped lead a players-only meeting in Kansas City late last month and he said Monday night he felt pride in seeing some of the points made are being put into use. "I'm just happy, not just because of the win today but because of how they're playing, how we're fighting", Abreu said.

Moncada is baseball's top prospect, having been called up by the White Sox on July 19. "But I think in two or three days I will be ready to play a game".

Maria Sharapova played her first WTA match in the United States since 2015 and beat Jennifer Brady, 6-1, 4-6, 6-0, in the opening round of the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford, Calif. Sharapova, a wild-card entrant and five-time Grand Slam champion, won the opening four games of the match, lost the first three of the second set, and cruised in the third.

It was great to see this team comeback.


With the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth, Moncada and Garcia were converging on a flyball to shallow right field by Toronto's Darwin Barney. Washington ace Max Scherzer left his start against Miami in the second inning Tuesday night because of a neck spasm. Engel managed to stay in the game but was understandably sore.

"The treatment is just ice and doing some squats". Garcia is batting.258 with two homers and 11 RBIs in 40 games. "I thought they were both out, is what it looked like to me". They should give him all the time he needs to heel.

Josh Donaldson hit the first solo shot to right-center field in the first. Type of the guy that could neutralize any type of offence when he's on. I do think that teams, especially early, were targeting players with multiple years of control, not the rentals. "He's feeling better, I think he's going to go out and play some catch (Monday), so that's a good thing".

On one hand, his knee collided with Garcia while elevated.
