White Sox top prospect signals that he’s ready to make his MLB debut in Player’s Tribune article. The 21-year-old continues to wreak havoc on Triple-A pitching.

Eloy Jimenez is ready. In fact, the Chicago White Sox top prospect is beyond ready according to his writing for the Player’s Tribune. On Wednesday, the Player’s Tribune released its latest article which came from the third-ranked overall prospect.

In the article, Jimenez details how he almost quit baseball after his first game, his love of Chicago and his goals for the White Sox. Jimenez continues to play in Triple-A with the Charlotte Knights and is inching closer to making his MLB debut.

Many Sox fans are anxiously awaiting the major league debut of Jimenez. If the recent promotion of Michael Kopech is any indication, Sox fans will once again bring energy to Guaranteed Rate Field for the debut of Jimenez. The logical time for the Sox to promote Jimenez would be next week when rosters expand on Sept. 1.
