Just moments ago, White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez tried to rob a homerun off the bat of A’s Frank Schwindel and appeared to dislocate his shoulder. For a team with World Series aspirations, this is not ideal.
But what’s most worrisome is that OutKick’s Dr. David J. Chao says the timetable for a recovery depends on an MRI. That’s never a good sign.
By video, worry for left shoulder posterior subluxation/dislocation. Length of absence depends on extent of labral tear seen on MRI. https://t.co/SNJyL8uuxP— David J. Chao – ProFootballDoc (@ProFootballDoc) March 24, 2021
Jimenez’s shoulder is out of place by the time his glove hits the backside of the left field wall. And based on the trainer’s body language, it looks like he’s there to console Jimenez off the field. Either way, we won’t know the extent of the damage until that MRI comes back.
It’s possible the White Sox release some information later tonight since this injury occurred earlier in the day, which gives the team some time to get the results. We wish Eloy Jimenez a speedy recovery. Hopefully, this wasn’t as bad as it looked.
