CHICAGO (CBS) — The White Sox might have dropped two of three to the Milwaukee Brewers, however they’re beginning off the week with a giant add.
Slugger Eloy Jimenez will DH and bat cleanup in his season debut Monday night time in Kansas Metropolis, after tearing a pectoral tendon in Spring Coaching.
In case there have been any doubt, he’s all prepared.
“Take a look at my face. What does my face let you know proper now, you realize? It’s an indication, you realize,” Jimenez mentioned as he pointed to his personal smile. “I’m actually, actually, actually, actually, actually, actually, actually, actually, actually, actually excited!”
Jimenez was cleared to renew baseball actions on June 14, lower than three months after his surgical procedure to restore that torn pectoral tendon. He mentioned he feels higher now than he did throughout spring coaching.
The fitting-handed slugger is coming off a formidable 2020 season when he gained an American League Silver Slugger award, after slashing .296/.332/.559, and ending second on the workforce in OPS (.890), doubles (14), residence runs (14), and RBI (41).
