If there’s one reason to suppress enthusiasm about Eloy Jimenez, it’s that he doesn’t have the cleanest track record in terms of health. We saw that up close this spring when he missed a good chunk of action due to patellar tendinitis, and then when a strained pectoral muscle delayed the start of his regular season.
He left Sunday’s game against Gwinnett after flying out in his second at-bat, and it looks like some kind of leg injury.

An MiLB.com story says “a White Sox official declined comment on the severity of his injury.” Whatever it ends up being, it already wasn’t a great day for banged-up prospects, because the Winston-Salem Dash placed Luis Robert on the DL with a thumb injury.
Luis Robert jammed his left thumb fielding a ball against the wall. Still being evaluated for how much time he’ll need to miss
