Eloy Jimenez of the Chicago White Sox loves to hit baseballs very far.
Eloy Jimenez is having a great year at the plate for the Chicago White Sox. We are being robbed of a full 162 game season from him because of COVID-19 but there are going to be plenty of those as we move along. He is so exciting to watch when he comes to bat because he just knows how to have professional at-bats. He has one of the better hitting approaches that a White Sox player has had in a very long time.
In their game against the Cleveland Indians yesterday, the team didn’t show up the way we know they can but Jimenez was fine. He went three for four at the plate including a monster game-tying home run. We all know that they ended up blowing the game but at the time, it was a huge home run for him. His three hits went along with a run scored and two RBIs on the home run. It is just annoying that the rest of the team wasn’t able to capitalize on his offense.
As you can see in the video, he hit the ball a long way in a very important moment. One thing that he has been able to do this season is being impressive with two outs. He did that once again here to get the game tied. Thanks to Jimenez, the White Sox were in a game that they had no business winning. It is clear that he is a key piece to this lineup and someone that needs to play well for this team to ever have a chance.
Eloy has a reputation for being a dreadful outfielder. As good of a hitter as he is, he is equally as bad in the outfield. Well, last night he had a great catch late in the game to keep Cleveland from scoring multiple more runs which allowed the White Sox to have a chance to tie the game in the final inning. All we can do is hope that Eloy continues to hit this well for the rest of this season and many years beyond that.
