White Sox place Moncada on DL, recall ex-Padre Rondon

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago White Sox infielder Yoan Moncada has been put on the 10-day disabled list with tightness in his left hamstring.

The White Sox made the move before Saturday night’s game against Minnesota. Manager Rick Renteria said an MRI came back clean and the move was precautionary.

The 22-year-old Moncada made an early exit in Friday night’s loss to the Twins. He also was taken out of Wednesday’s game against St. Louis.

Moncada is batting .263 with six home runs and 17 RBIs. His .359 on-base percentage and .509 slugging percentage are both second on the team among regulars.

The White Sox recalled infielder Jose Rondon from Triple-A Charlotte to take Moncada’s spot on the roster.
