Chicago White Sox infielder Danny Mendick suffered an apparent lower-body injury resulting from a collision in Wednesday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

In the top of the second inning, Jays’ second baseman Santiago Espinal hit a fly ball down the left field line. Mendick, third baseman Jake Burger, and left fielder Adam Haseley all converged trying to make the play. Haseley came down with the ball but collided with Mendick in the process.

Mendick immediately fell to the ground in pain. After White Sox trainers attended to him, Mendick did not put weight on his right leg upon being helped off the field. When the Sox took the field for the top of the third inning, Leury Garcia replaced Mendick at shortstop.

The Chicago White Sox said Danny Mendick exited the game with right knee discomfort. He is currently undergoing further evaluation.
