Default Moncada-W. Garcia collision

Yoan Moncada and Willy Garcia both injured on collision in short right. Willy slid to make the catch and Moncada tried to leap over him ending up kneeing him right in the side of the head. Garcia was out cold but walked off on his power. Moncada was carted off with a knee injury.

Given that Moncada has had several other near misses in short right with outfielders I think he needs to learn a thing or two about those sorts of plays. I'm all for him wanting to go all out but he has to learn when to give way. Now two guys are hurt, potentially badly.

Right knee contusion for Moncada. X-rays are negative. He's day-to-day.

Garcia has a head contusion and will be evaluated in the morning.

That's good news. I figured it probably wasn't as bad as knee injuries can be because he hit straight on and didn't get it twisted around at all. Still painful as can be.

Willy seemed ok when he walked off but no question he was out cold, probably a nice concussion to go with it.

Could have been a lot worse. Not surprising though as the injuries simply fail to stop with this team.

At least it wasn't like Ozzie blowing out a knee in his collision with Tim Raines against the Yankees in 1992 or Willie Harris slamming into Magglio's knee in Cleveland in 2004.

Sometimes though you can't hear when someone is calling you off.

Yeah, I know I'm being harsh on Moncada, particularly on this one. But it's not just this one. He has had several miscommunications already with various teammates on short flys like that in his short time with the team. It is clearly a weakness in his understanding of the game.

That Ozzie/Raines collusion is the first thing I think of whenever I see these things happen.

I hope he's ok. That would be devastating to lose the lynchpin in the sale trade.

Exactly the one I thought of. There was also the Magglio Will Harris one.

These are ugly.

Well with the Sox luck it would be typical in my opinion but according to the Sox it's a right knee contusion for Moncada. X-rays are negative. He's day-to-day.

Let's hope they got the diagnosis right for once.

Or in a couple days, weeks, we find out the rest of the story.

Hopefully they are both ok.

BTW, outfielder/infielder collisions should never happen on the field.

Agreed. Those things are off-field only.

I thought it was interesting to watch the Toronto trainer go out to tend to Moncada while Herm and Renteria were with Garcia. Lots of different angles on this one. Herm and Renteria had to stop at Garcia first because he was closer to the Sox dugout, but it is probably fair to say that 99% of the people in the park last night were more concerned about the blue chipper Moncada. However, it would have been so improper for them to run past Garcia to go check on Yoan. So, Toronto's trainer went out as a goodwill gesture and that's the proper thing to do in that situation in terms of baseball ettiquette, but it was fascinating to see what he was actually doing out there. If you watched closely, I'm not sure he ever actually touched Moncada. He offered no advice. It looked like he was trying to communicate a bit, but really it was just a show of awkward support. In today's litigious world, even baseball trainers have to be careful. Brian Ball came out shortly thereafter and helped Moncada.

Especially when both guys speak the same language.

There have been so many close calls like this during the season, unfortunately last night disaster did happen.
