SAN DIEGO, CA – JULY 10: Eloy Jimenez /

Eloy Jimenez, OF

Eloy Jimenez was an obvious choice. We heard talks of him joining the 40-man roster before. He’s the number four prospect in baseball according to MLB Pipeline and looks to be a stud. It shouldn’t be long before we see him patrolling a the outfield for the White Sox.

He’s dominated every level of competition he’s played at. Most recently he played in the Dominican Winter League where he hit four home runs, drove in 21 RBIs, hit five doubles to go along with a .368 batting average. He’s just been unstoppable everywhere he’s gone.

It’s just a matter of time before he makes it the majors. Maybe it will be in 2018, similar to what the organization elected to do with Yoan Moncada in 2017. White Sox fans are giddy at the thought of his debut. And it probably makes it a little sweeter that he was acquired from the crosstown rival, Chicago Cubs.
