An eventful night for Yoan Moncada has come to an early end. The Chicago White Sox' third baseman exited Thursday's game against the Orioles due to left hamstring tightness.
Moncada went 2-2 at the plate and made several nice plays in the field before his premature departure.
He appeared to tweak his hamstring in the second inning on an athletic play that negated a bunt single attempt by Baltimore's Terrin Vavra. Moncada came up a bit gingerly after recording the out and trainers attended to him on the field. However, the 27-year-old stayed in the game for a few more innings.
When the White Sox took the field in the top of the fifth, Josh Harrison slid over to third base for Moncada and Romy Gonzalez entered the game to play second base.
The Chicago White Sox say Yoan Moncada's status is day-to-day.
