On Tuesday afternoon, Chicago White Sox GM Rick Hahn spoke to the media. During which, Hahn provided an injury update on two crucial pieces of the team: Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert. According to Hahn, Jimenez is working to ‘ramp things up’, while Robert is starting a strengthening program.
It’s important to note that while Hahn is being cautious in giving a timeline for return, a ‘ramping up’ in their recovery signals that there have been no significant setbacks. They have also been seen on social media recovering their injuries, both showing positive signs.
Both Jimenez and Robert are sorely missed in the lineup, evidenced by the White Sox currently ranking 22nd in baseball in home runs. Robert’s original diagnosis indicated he would need 12-16 weeks before returning, while Jimenez was projected at five to six months.
