Major League Baseball top prospect Moncada carted off field after collision

Both players stayed down on the ground for a while before Garcia was helped to his feet and Moncada was taken off the field on a cart.

After Tyler Saladino struck out swinging, Jose Abreu tied it at 6 with a single to right.

Moncada - playing second base - and Garcia - playing right field - were both going after a shallow flyball when Moncada's knee nailed Garcia in the head, as Garcia was attempting to make a sliding catch. But Moncada had to be carted off the field as he never put any weight on his right leg.

Garcia also went down on the play on Monday night, but eventually walked off under his own power. As we get the evaluations, we'll know exactly where we might sit.

Garcia, another rookie, has been a pleasant surprise for the South Siders, hitting.258/.317/.441 over 40 games. "I didn't remember what happened until the doctors started asking me questions here, and then I saw the video".

Moncada (knee) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays. "Thank God they are, and that's something that we have to be happy about".

Toronto sent Liriano and cash to AL-leading Houston for outfielders Nori Aoki and Teoscar Hernandez.

The White Sox did manage to pull of the victory in walk-off fashion.

It is uncertain if trips the disabled list are in order, but we would not be surprised if Garcia landed on the 10-day list. Per Nightengale, he will undergo the concussion protocol before being able to return. "He's feeling a lot better", manager John Gibbons said. Lucky for Sox fans the injury wasn't more serious.
