Yoan Moncada joins Frank Thomas in White Sox history books

Yoan Moncada has only been with the White Sox for a few months and he's already etched himself in the record books next to a Hall of Famer.

The White Sox rookie second baseman had the best statistical game of his career in Thursday's 17-7 clobbering of the Detroit Tigers.

Moncada reached base six times vs. the Tigers, becoming the youngest White Sox player to accomplish the feat since Frank Thomas in 1990.

Moncada also notched a career-high four hits, cranked out his 5th home run of the season and scored five runs.

Moncada's five runs vs. the Tigers also put him in the same company as a recent Hall of Famer.

Moncada now owns a .229/.353/.407 slash line with five home runs and 15 RBI in 38 games with the White Sox in 2017.

Bears promote preseason standout Tanner Gentry to 53-man roster

The Bears' wide-receiver carousel took another spin on Tuesday afternoon.

The Bears announced they've promoted wide receiver Tanner Gentry to the active roster and signed wideout Mario Alford to an already-thin positional group which is already without Cameron Meredith and just lost Kevin White to another potential season-ending injury.

Gentry, who was waived by the Bears and signed to the practice squad earlier this month, had four catches for 77 yards and one touchdown during the preseason. Gentry's touchdown came on a 45-yard pass from rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky against the Tennessee Titans.

Gentry went undrafted last May after a standout four-year career at Wyoming in which he caught 180 passes for 2,125 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Alford, who was White's college teammate at West Virginia, was originally selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Alford's one career catch came during his rookie season with the Bengals. He had eight punt returns for 68 yards and eight kickoff returns for 190 yards with the Cleveland Browns last season. He was waived by the team following the 2017 preseason.

In an additional roster move, the Bears promoted inside linebacker Jonathan Anderson to the active roster and placed Jerrell Freeman on injured reserve.
