White Sox left fielder Eloy Jimenez is expected to miss five or six months with a torn pectoral after yesterday’s collision at the wall. It’s a devastating blow to a team with World Series expectations.
Hearing the news on CWS outfielder Eloy Jimenez is not good. Could be out most of the summer (5-6 months) with a torn pectoral @MLBNetworkRadio— Jim Duquette (@Jim_Duquette) March 25, 2021

Chicago is deep with talent, so they should have some answers offensively elsewhere in that lineup, but this is still brutal. It’s never ideal for any team worth a rip to lose an everyday player–let alone a borderline star like Eloy Jimenez.
Jimenez batted .296 last season with 14 homers and 41 RBI. Good luck replacing that…
