Here is a little Yoán Moncada update for you.
Moncada is having a MRI done on the right hamstring area. The hope is to avoid the IL, per Tony La Russa, but nothing is certain at this point.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) June 18, 2022
Unsure what is compelling me to turn this game on right now other than habit.— Dr. C Spaghetti (@C_Spaghett1) June 18, 2022
Johnny Cueto has had a fantastic start today, and has been a great pickup.

The bases are loaded, but the White Sox always struggle with RISP. Let’s see how this goes.

... and Andrew Vaughn knocks Josh Harrison in. Luis Robert brings Adam Engel and Vaughn home. Verlander is quickly yanked from the mound. The White Sox are up, 7-0.

All excitement must come to an end at some point, though.
Even with a 7-0 lead I still don’t feel comfortable with this White Sox team.— Eloy (@EloyGarcia84) June 18, 2022
Cueto continues to work his magic on a fully-loaded Astros team.

Is this good? This sounds good.
Six scoreless innings of one-hit ball for Johnny Cueto.— Daryl Van Schouwen (@CST_soxvan) June 18, 2022
Cueto stuns again in the seventh.
Vaughn has had three hits in five plate appearances, proving how valuable he is to a lineup.
