This is the sixth in a series of position-by-position analyses of the Chicago White Sox following the 2020 season.
Yoan Moncada is one of the top hitters in the Sox lineup. But COVID-19 had a major impact on his 2020 season.
Moncada tested positive for COVID-19 before the start of summer camp in early July. He received clearance to return July 16, a few days before the start of the season July 24.
Moncada played in 52 of 60 games, but his slash line dropped to .225/.320/.385 this season from .315/.367/.548 in 2019.
“It’s like a daily battle to try to find that strength, that energy to go through the day,” Moncada said through an interpreter.
