Yoan Moncada held out of White Sox workouts
Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada has been held out of summer camp workouts so far.
“I’m just holding him out right now,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. The White Sox had two players test positive for COVID-19, so it's possible Moncada is infected or otherwise impacted. The 25-year-old signed a five-year, $70 million contract extension with the White Sox back in March following a breakout 2019 campaign that saw Moncada slash .315/.367/.548 with 25 home runs, 79 RBI, 10 stolen bases and 83 runs scored in 559 plate appearances.
numberFire's models expect Moncada to bat .275 with a .831 OPS in 227 plate appearances this season while recording 10 homers, 30 RBI, 33 runs scored, and 4 steals.
