White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Back in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (groin) is batting cleanup as the designated hitter in Tuesday's game against the Royals, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The young slugger will be playing in just his fourth game of the season, hoping to avoid aggravating the groin injury that has sidelined him since July 28. In his brief action last week, Jimenez went 2-for-11 with a home run and three RBI.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Out again, but making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (groin) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Jimenez's sore right groin will keep him on the bench for the fourth game in a row, but the 24-year-old appears optimistic that he'll avoid a trip back to the injured list. According to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, Jimenez gave the media a thumbs up when asked about how he felt following a pregame workout Sunday, a sign that he could be ready to go when the White Sox begin a three-game series against Kansas City on Tuesday. After returning from an extended stay on the IL following spring pectoral surgery, Jimenez went 2-for-11 in his first three games with Chicago before picking up the groin injury.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Still not starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (groin) isn't starting Saturday's game against Cleveland.

Jimenez experienced right groin tightness in Wednesday's loss to the Royals and was removed as a precautionary measure. The injury will force him out of the lineup for a third straight game Saturday. Gavin Sheets will serve as the designated hitter while Adam Engel enters the starting nine in center field.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (groin) isn't starting Friday's game against Cleveland.

Jimenez will be out of the lineup for a second straight contest as he continues to manage right groin tightness. Gavin Sheets will serve as the designated hitter while Andrew Vaughn starts in left field. Jimenez won't be available off the bench Friday, but manager Tony La Russa said the 24-year-old is doing better and receiving treatment, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (groin) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Royals.

Jimenez was removed from Wednesday's game as a precautionary measure due to right groin tightness. Yoan Moncada will serve as the designated hitter while Leury Garcia starts at third base.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Pulled as precaution
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez exited Wednesday's game with right groin tightness, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He went 0-for-3 with a strikeout prior to departing.

The team called the removal precautionary. Given that Jimenez made his season-debut Monday after recovering from a serious shoulder injury, it makes sense that the team is proceeding with caution. Gavin Sheets entered the game to replace Jimenez.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Launches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run Tuesday against the Royals.

Jimenez was participating in his second game of the season after being activated from the injured list Monday. He tallied his first hit of the campaign with a leadoff single in the second inning. However, the highlight came in the eighth, when he blasted the game-winning home run. The White Sox have shown little hesitation in getting Jimenez back into the mix, as he started in left field Tuesday and has slotted into the cleanup role in both of his contests.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Hitless in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez started at designated hitter, batted cleanup, and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Royals.

This was Jimenez's first game since spring training, during which he suffered a torn pectoral tendon that made him miss four months. He was understandably anxious to get back and saw just nine pitches in his four at-bats, including expanding the strike zone during his strikeout. Jimenez should eventually get back to playing the field; he's expected to share left field and DH with Andrew Vaughn.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (pectoral) was activated from the 60-day injured list as expected Monday.

Jimenez could well wind up being the biggest addition any team makes at the deadline, as he hasn't played all season since rupturing his left pectoral tendon in late March while trying to rob a home run in spring training. He's one of the better sluggers in the league when healthy, as he's hit 45 homers in 177 games since his debut back in 2019, pairing that with a .276/.321/.527 slash line. He was originally expected to be out until late August or early September, but his .289/.327/.467 line in 12 rehab games suggests he's healthy. Jake Burger was optioned in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Season debut coming Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Tony La Russa said Jimenez (pectoral) will join the White Sox in Kansas City on Monday and is expected to be activated from the 60-day injured list prior to the team's series opener versus the Royals, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

La Russa noted that he hasn't decided if Jimenez will play regularly at designated hitter or in left field (or shuttle between the two), but regardless, getting his bat in the lineup for the first time all season is a major boon for the White Sox. After undergoing surgery in late March to repair a ruptured left pectoral tendon, Jimenez was initially projected to be sidelined until late August or early September, but he'll end up returning far sooner than expected after making rapid progress in his recovery program. Jimenez received the green light to make his 2021 debut for the big club after slashing .289/.327/.467 with two home runs and a pair of doubles over his two-week rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Remains on rehab for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox do not have a set date for Jimenez's return from a pectoral injury, Andrew Wagner of MLB.com reports.

Jimenez is currently with Triple-A Charlotte and played the 11th game of his rehab assignment Friday. White Sox manager Tony La Russa is anxious to have him back, but he cautions against bringing him before he's ready. "It starts with physically being ready to play, and play a lot," La Russa said Friday. "But you don't want him to come back up here unless he's got some timing at the plate because he's going to want to -- and he's going to be expected to -- produce right away." Jimenez looks fully recovered and is playing left field, but there's no indication of a timeline for his return. The outfielder is hitting .293/.333/.488 with two home runs over 41 rehab at-bats.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Rehab moves to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (pectoral) has gone 1-for-6 with a walk in two rehab games for Triple-A Charlotte this week.

Jimenez kicked off his rehab assignment with two games for High-A Winston-Salem over the weekend before moving up the ladder to Triple-A. The 24-year-old appeared as a designated hitter during the first rehab game, then moved to left field for the next three contests, including nine innings Wednesday. The outfielder has not played yet this season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle during spring training. At the time of surgery in April, he was given a four-to-five month prognosis, and it looks like Jimenez will be returning just shy of that estimate.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Strong start to rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (pectoral) has gone 3-for-7 with a home run, a walk, two runs and two RBI through the first two games of his rehab assignment at High-A Winston-Salem. He will continue his rehab at Triple-A Charlotte beginning Tuesday.

After serving as a designated hitter for the affiliate Saturday in his 2021 debut, Jimenez manned left field for seven innings Sunday before heading to the bench. The 24-year-old looks to be progressing well in his recovery from the left pectoral surgery he underwent in March, a procedure that was initially expected to keep him on the shelf for 4-to-5 months. Jimenez looks like he'll have a chance to return before the short end of that timeline, provided he can make it through his rehab assignment free of any setbacks. The White Sox would have the luxury of deploying Jimenez as a DH if they aren't fully confident he's immediately ready to handle an everyday role in left field.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Rehab debut postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (pectoral) had his rehab outing at High-A Winston-Salem on Friday postponed due to rain.

Jimenez will get another opportunity to take at-bats Saturday, when the Dash compete in a doubleheader with Hickory. It's possible Jimenez is back in Chicago by the end of July.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Begins rehab assignment Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (pectoral) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Winston-Salem on Friday.

Jimenez underwent surgery in late March on a ruptured left pectoral tendon and was expected to miss four-to-five months. The best-case return date was thought to be late-July/early-August, so it sounds like this will be a best-case scenario if he avoids setbacks. It's unclear how long the rehab assignment will be, but as a position player, it may only take Jimenez a couple weeks to get up to speed.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Cleared for baseball activites
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (pectoral) was cleared to begin participating in baseball activities at the White Sox's spring training complex.

The young slugger has been sidelined all season after rupturing his left pectoral tendon in late March and subsequently undergoing surgery, and resuming baseball activities is the first major step toward his return to the diamond. Jimenez is expected to ramp up his rehab work over the next month at the spring training complex before potentially starting a rehab assignment, which could allow him to rejoin the White Six sometime in August if he can avoid any setbacks.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Goes to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox placed Jimenez (pectoral) on the 60-day injured list Thursday.

Jimenez is expected to be sidelined for about 4-to-5 months after undergoing surgery Tuesday to repair a torn left pectoral tendon, so Chicago's decision to place him on the 60-day IL rather than the 10-day IL won't have any bearing on his timeline for making his 2021 debut. The transaction opened up a spot on the 40-man roster for Billy Hamilton, who will begin the season as a reserve outfielder for the White Sox.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez underwent surgery on his ruptured left pectoral tendon Tuesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Jimenez suffered the injury while trying to rob a home run in a Cactus League contest. General manager Rick Hahn confirmed that his timeline to return remains five to six months, contradicting reports from Monday that indicated Jimenez could be back in as little as four months. That timeline means Jimenez won't be back in game action until late August at the earliest. The White Sox expect to update Jimenez's timeline in three months.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Could return in 4-to-5 months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doctors confirmed Monday that Jimenez suffered a pectoral tear, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Jimenez will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair the damage following this confirmation. There is some good news for the White Sox, in that the recovery period is expected to last around four-to-five months, which is slightly better than the initial five-to-six month timeframe.

White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Out at least five months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez will miss five to six months after being diagnosed with a ruptured left pectoral tendon, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Jimenez suffered the injury while attempting to rob a home run Wednesday. He'll undergo surgery and miss the majority of the season. The expected recovery timeline places his return date sometime between late August and late September. Leury Garcia and Adam Engel (hamstring) are the primary candidates to start in left field in his absence, though the White Sox could also look to bring in a free agent like Yoenis Cespedes, Yasiel Puig or Josh Reddick. The team is also considering trying Andrew Vaughn in left field, though he's been purely a first baseman in the minors.
