Scary outfield collision injures a pair of White Sox players

Garcia, who snagged Darwin Barney's soft two-out flare into short right field with the bases loaded in the sixth, only to have it dribble out of his glove and ruled a hit, would need to watch the replay later on to see what everyone was so anxious about at the time.

However, the White Sox have just released statements that sure seem like best-case scenarios - so far - for the players. The team announced that Moncada is day-to-day with a right knee contusion and all X-rays conducted were negative. "Willy's alert and doing well". But Moncada had to be carted off the field as he never put any weight on his right leg. Taking a knee to the side of the head is serious and could lead to a concussion.

Moncada (knee) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays. Moncada drifted back in pursuit while Garcia raced in.

Matt Davidson didn't see the collision at first.

"It's like having a couple friends changing schools, so hopefully they pitch well where they are at and they're happy", Martin said. "I didn't remember what happened until the doctors started asking me questions here, and then I saw the video". He added that both of his payers were "alert and well", and were smiling after the game.

The 24-year-old Garcia is batting.258 with two homers in 40 games with the White Sox this season. Just his knee ended up lagging and hitting him as we going down.
