The Chicago White Sox need to start getting some of their players back from injury. Lucas Giolito is going to be back on the mound on Sunday. AJ Pollock is returning in this series against the Minnesota Twins, and Tony La Russa gave a positive update on Luis Robert.

Now, we were given a sight to behold on Friday night that we weren’t necessarily expecting. Yoan Moncada was out there working at third base. He has yet to play in 2022 after sustaining a minor injury at the end of spring training.

Moncada is already eligible to come off the injured list as it has been more than ten days. It is now just a matter of getting him ready for Major League action. It should come much sooner than later at this point. The White Sox will be getting a major boost when he returns.

Moncada, whether people want to believe it or not, is one of the most important players on the team. He isn’t as powerful as Eloy Jimenez or Luis Robert but he does everything right otherwise. His tools are outstanding and will help the White Sox win more.

The Chicago White Sox might be getting Yoan Moncada back soon enough.

His defense is also incredible. He plays a Gold Glove level third base for the Sox night in and night out. He also gets on base with the best of them so inserting him anywhere in the lineup will make this group very dangerous.

When he comes back, that should not spell the end for Jake Burger’s current stint in Major League Baseball. He has been very good and deserves to stay as Moncada’s backup and a potential DH. We can only hope that they find room for him on the Major League roster when Moncada comes back.

It would be ignorant to keep someone like Danny Mendick on the team over Jake Burger. It is bad enough that we see Leury Garcia batting second or third on a nightly basis so we don’t need anymore bad players taking up roster space in favor of good players. Hopefully, Moncada’s return coming up is a good sign of things to come for the Chicago White sox.
