White Sox Outfielder Restarting Rehab Assignment

Eloy Jimenez will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday...again.

In late April, Jimenez had surgery to repair a torn hamstring behind his right knee. He started a rehab assignment earlier this month, but was pulled out of it due to continued discomfort. 

Jimenez will serve as designated hitter on Tuesday, before working up to his regular outfield position. If everything goes well, Jimenez will hopefully be back with the White Sox by the end of the month.  

In 11 games this season, the twenty-five year old has hit .222/.256/.333, with one home run and seven RBI's. 

In 2017, the White Sox acquired Eloy Jimenez along with Dylan Cease, Matt Rose, and Bryant Flete from the Cubs for pitcher Jose Quintana. Safe to say the White Sox won that trade.

In his young career, Jimenez has hit .268/.314/.499 with 56 home runs and 164 RBIs in 243 games. Let's hope he can avoid the injured list because, when healthy, Eloy is one of the most exciting young players in the game.
