White Sox Yoan Moncada To Return, Willy Garcia Out At Least A Month

The Chicago White Sox got a bit of good news and a bit of bad news on Thursday in regards to two of their players.

White Sox rookie second baseman Yoan Moncada is scheduled to return to the field on Thursday night as Chicago squares off with the Boston Red Sox.

Outfielder Willy Garcia got a much worse diagnosis.

Garcia is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after being diagnosed with a fractured right jaw, the team announced.

Garcia and Moncada collided while chasing Toronto Blue Jays’ second baseman Darwin Barney’s bases-loaded blooper. Moncada’s knee slid into Garcia’s head and the ball fell out of Garcia’s glove for a 3-run double.

Moncada was helped to a cart by Jose Abreau and X-rays on Moncada were negative. He would miss 2 games with a bruised knee.

Garcia was able to walk off the field under his own power but was later placed on the 7-day disabled list due to a concussion suffered in the collision.

Garcia will undergo a procedure to insert a plate into his jaw.
