Yoan Moncada and Willy Garcia collided in a brutal outfield play

Yoan Moncada and Willy Garcia collided in a brutal outfield play

Garcia, the right fielder, charged a Darwin Barney shallow fly ball and was sliding in an attempt to make the catch when Moncada's right knee struck Garcia in the head.

However, the White Sox have just released statements that sure seem like best-case scenarios - so far - for the players.

The Sox announced Moncada was diagnosed with a bruised right knee after X-rays were negative, and they designated him as day to day. "At the end of the day we won the game and Willy is doing alright and Moncada is doing fine".

Moncada, who is widely regarded as one of baseball's top prospects, put no pressure on his right leg while he was helped to a cart by Abreu.

Oil prices surge on falling U.S. inventories
Oil built on Tuesday's sharp gain Wednesday, supported by views that US inventories may have fallen sharply last week. For distillate inventories including diesel, the EIA reported a fall of 2.9 million barrels.

The Sox trailed the Blue Jays 3-0 at the time of the collision, and the bases were loaded when Barney hit James Shields' fastball. Moncada drifted back in pursuit while Garcia raced in. The outfielder said his condition had improved as the night went on. Per Nightengale, he will undergo the concussion protocol before being able to return.

Shields gave up three solo home runs in the first four innings as the Blue Jays took the lead.

Davidson hit a walk-off homer Sunday for just the Sox's second win in 16 games. "I didn't remember what happened until the doctors started asking me questions here, and then I saw the video". He too was astonished that both players were in good spirits after the game.
