Jimenez was promoted from High-A Winston-Salem to Double-A Birmingham, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports. Aside from a brief absence due to a bruised foot, Jimenez has only enhanced his standing in the eyes of prospect hounds since getting shipped from the Cubs to the White Sox in a July 13 blockbuster deal. The 20-year-old slashed a scintillating .345/.410/.682 across 122 plate appearances with Winston-Salem, collecting 27 extra-base hits while maintaining respectable walk (9.8 percent) and strikeout (17.2 percent) rates. If Jimenez is able to demonstrate similar power production and plate discipline upon moving up a rung on the minor-league ladder, he'll have a legitimate case for opening the 2018 campaign as the top overall prospect in the sport.
Jimenez might be in line for a promotion to Double-A Birmingham, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Jimenez appears to be ready for the next challenge after he shared the organization's Player of the Month award for July when hit .356 with four home runs, seven doubles and 14 RBI in 17 games with High-A Winston-Salem. General manager Rick Hahn is considering the promotion but is also having internal debate between letting Jimenez finish a successful year at the High-A level he's been at all season, or giving him a taste of where he'll likely start next year. Whatever happens, Jimenez is one of the top prospects in all of baseball and is expected to be a core player for the White Sox in two or three years.
Jimenez (foot) fell a triple shy of the cycle Sunday with High-A Winston-Salem, finishing the day 5-for-6 with two RBI and two runs scored. Jimenez left Friday's contest prematurely after fouling a ball off his foot, but it doesn't appear to be having any lingering effects on the top prospect. He's now slashing .452/.514/.806 in nine games with his new organization as he continues to raise his already high prospect stock.
Jimenez is day-to-day at High-A Winston-Salem with a bruised foot. He left Friday evening's game after fouling a ball off his foot. Initial X-rays came back negative, so it appears that he won't miss too much time due to this issue, although it wouldn't be too surprising to see the White Sox handle this carefully with such a high-profile prospect like Jimenez. Prior to the injury, he was 9-for-24 with three doubles and a home run in seven games with the Dash.
Jimenez has gone 4-for-10 with a double, five RBI, four walks and two strikeouts at High-A Winston Salem over his first three games since being acquired by the White Sox. The White Sox have a loaded farm system after parting with several veterans since last winter. The latest prize is Jimenez, who is widely regarded as a top prospect regardless of who's doing the evaluation. He's at least two years away from being an outfield regular in the major leagues.
