Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada exited early from Friday night’s game against the Houston Astros due to right hamstring tightness.

In the second inning, Moncada hit a ground ball to short and began running toward first base. As he approached the bag, he pulled up gingerly after tweaking his leg.

He remained in the game initially and played the field in the bottom of the second. But when the bottom of the third inning came around, Josh Harrison replaced Yoan Moncada at third base.

The Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros are tied at three in the third inning.

Bears need a trainer who recognizes that being limber, and able to move is more important than simply strength developed through weights. Sox have the had the most hamstring injuries in the history of MLB. These injuries also fall in the lap and responsibility of the manager. La Russa needs to go, and soon. Season is over if he remains.
