The Chicago White Sox needs Eloy Jimenez to dominate at the plate in 2022.

In most lineups, Eloy Jimenez would be batting third or fourth. This showcases just how deep the White Sox lineup is.

Jimenez missed the first half of the season with a torn pectoral muscle. It limited him to just 55 games. However, Jimenez still managed to hit 10 home runs and drive home 37 RBIs. Given a full healthy season, there is no telling what Jimenez can do.

In 2020, he won his first Silver Slugger Award becoming the youngest White Sox player to ever receive the award. Jimenez ranked first in the AL in multi-hit games with 21. He also ranked second on the team behind AL MVP, Jose Abreu in home runs (14), doubles (14), RBIs (41), and slugging percentage (.559). He also had a career-high .296 batting average and a .559 slugging percentage.

During his rookie season in 2019, he led all AL rookies in home runs with 31 as well as RBIs (79) and total bases (240). In doing so he became just the first rookie since 1988 to hit 30 plus homers in a season.

Jimenez has the rawest power out of anyone in the lineup. He has had his share of injuries but if he can stay healthy it is easy to imagine his name near the top of the home run leaders next season.
