The Chicago White Sox have an all-around superstar in Eloy Jimenez. He hit 31 home runs in his rookie year and is as polished of a hitter as the White Sox have had at this young of an age in a long time. He is only scratching the surface of what he can do at the Major League level. There could be a world where Jimenez is one of the best power hitters in the world one day. The fact that he gets to be a part of a lineup with Yoan Moncada and Luis Robert is very exciting.
As fun as Jimenez is to watch on the field, he is equally as fun to watch off the field. He yells funny things into the camera when he is doing postgame interviews and is a treat to have on our team from a personality perspective. He is one of those personalities that make it so easy to root for him. When a guy is as happy as Jimenez is all the time, it is clear that he just loves playing the game of baseball for a living.
As a fan, you want guys who are easy to root for. That is why having him on a microphone during actual play might be very entertaining. He is loud and has some really funny comments at the perfect times. If we were able to hear some of his humor come out on the baseball field, it would be a treat to listen to. He is the type of guy who could see one of his audio clips go viral because it was so perfect. He definitely leads the pack of White Sox players that we want to hear with a microphone if the season comes back.
