Jimenez went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Monday's 3-0 loss to Houston. The 22-year-old rookie returned from the injured list Monday, suiting up for the first time since April 26. Jimenez dropped his season average to .229 across 83 at-bats after the hitless day. He has just five extra-base hits and a .642 OPS.
Jimenez (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list as expected Monday. Jimenez hit a modest .241/.294/.380 in 21 games prior to landing on the injured list, and the White Sox will surely be expecting more following his nearly month-long absence. He looked fine on his rehab stint, hitting .318 in five games. Nicky Delmonico was optioned in a corresponding move.
The White Sox are expected to activate Jimenez (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's series opener with the Astros, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. After playing in five consecutive games for Triple-A Charlotte, Jimenez was held out for rest Sunday. His absence from the lineup coupled with the White Sox's decision to option fellow outfielder Nicky Delmonico to Charlotte suggests all signs are pointing to Jimenez returning to the active roster Monday. Jimenez hit .318 with a home run during his stint in Charlotte.
Jimenez (ankle) went 2-for-5 with a solo home run for Triple-A Charlotte on Friday. Jimenez has a hit in all four games while on a rehab assignment, going 6-for-16 with two extra-base hits and three runs scored. After starting the rehab stint with a game as the designated hitter, Jimenez played left field the next three games, including a full nine innings Thursday and Friday. If he's not back up with the White Sox this weekend, he should be up by Monday.
Jimenez (ankle) went 1-for-4 with a run scored for Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday. Jimenez served as the designated hitter in the first game of his rehab assignment for the Knights. The White Sox will keep him down on the farm for the rest of the week, and have Jimenez get reps in the outfield before activating him off the IL.
