Eloy Jimenez Preparing To Play Outfield For White Sox 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jan 24, 2023 1:13 pm

Eloy Jimenez is preparing to play more games in the outfield this season, especially in right, after the Chicago White Sox signed Andrew Benintendi to a five-year, $75 million contract.

The White Sox also have Luis Robert in center, to go along with Gavin Sheets and prospect Oscar Colas in the mix in right.

Jimenez was sidelined for a couple of months last season after he had surgery in April to repair a torn hamstring tendon behind his right knee.

Asked whether he would embrace the DH role this year, Jimenez responded: \"I don\'t know.\"

\"Last year, when I was DH\'ing more than [playing] the outfield, it was because I got surgery. And I understand that,\" he said. \"But this year, I\'ve been working really hard to play the outfield more than DH. So I don\'t really think that I\'m going to accept it, because if I\'m working hard, I\'m going to get better, and I want to play in the outfield.\"
