Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez left Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Twins with a right hamstring injury, the team announced on its official Twitter feed. He’s being further evaluated after being taken off the field on a medical cart.
Jimenez, 25, landed on first base awkwardly after hitting a ground ball to Twins third baseman Luis Arraez in the top of the second inning. He immediately went down to the ground and laid there until the cart came to get him as the training staff attended to his injury.
The latest ailment continues a two year ongoing narrative for the White Sox who lost Jimenez for nearly four months to a pectoral injury last spring training. Center fielder Luis Robert is currently nursing a groin problem after missing half of last season while third baseman Yoan Moncada hasn’t played yet this year due to a hip issue. Outfielder AJ Pollock just returned from his own hamstring injury.
Jimenez was hitting .229 with one home run entering the game against the Twins on Saturday.
