Yoan Moncada lands on injured list, while Eloy Jimenez will restart rehab assignment Tuesday


(670 The Score) The White Sox on Monday activated star shortstop Tim Anderson and placed third baseman Yoan Moncada on the injured list ahead of their game against the Blue Jays in the evening at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Anderson had been sidelined since May 29 due to a groin injury. He’s having a terrific season, hitting .356 with five homers, 19 RBIs, 24 runs and an .896 OPS in 40 games.

Moncada has a strained right hamstring, and his placement on the injured list is retroactive to Saturday. He’s hitting .179 with three homers and 12 RBIs this season.

In other injury news, White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez will restart his rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, general manager Rick Hahn said. Jimenez will initially be the designated hitter for Charlotte. Jimenez is working back from a torn hamstring tendon behind his right knee, and his rehab assignment was halted on June 9 after he encountered what the team called “normal leg soreness.”

It remains unclear when Jimenez will return to the White Sox’s big league roster.

“His return to the active roster will be based upon, frankly, from a baseball standpoint how long it takes to get his timing back,” Hahn said.

Jimenez is hitting .222 with one homer, seven RBIs and a .590 OS in 11 games this season.
