Early in Wednesday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox star Yoan Moncada took a Chris Sale slider to the right knee and was forced to exit.

Trainers immediately came out to check on Moncada, who attempted to stay in the game.

However, just a short while later in the first inning, he had to leave because he just couldn’t run after Jose Abreu hit a double.

Hopefully this injury is just minor. Moncada has been rock solid for the White Sox this year, batting .299 with 13 home runs and 42 RBI.
