BREAKING: Chicago White Sox Lose Oft-Injured Outfielder To 10-Day IL

The Chicago White Sox suffered a 12-3 loss against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday, and it seems that the defeat wasn't the only setback they encountered.

Outfielder Eloy Jimenez has unexpectedly been placed on the 10-day injured list, due to a low-grade left hamstring strain.

While it's unclear when exactly the injury occurred, the team expects Jimenez to be out for approximately 2-to-3 weeks, according to James Fegan of The Athletic.

Over the last three seasons, the 26-year-old has managed to play just 194 games while dealing with a plethora of injuries.

However, when healthy, he's one of the best players in the game, holding a .275/.327/.501 triple-slash line, 71 home runs, 214 RBIs, and 160 runs scored over his five-year career, spanning 321 games.

In the meantime, the team has recalled infielder Jake Burger from Triple-A Charlotte, but it's expected that Gavin Sheets, a left-handed hitter, will take over the designated hitter position as Jimenez's absence is felt. Photo Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
