Eloy Jimenez Injury Update: MRI ‘Reasonable’; Could Play This Weekend

Sox skipper Tony La Russa did not rule out Jimenez playing this weekend at Minnesota.

Eloy Jimenez Injury Update Status Chicago White Sox

Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa provided an injury update regarding outfielder Eloy Jimenez on Thursday afternoon. The Sox skipper said Jimenez underwent an MRI on his leg that produced “reasonable” results, showing “nothing drastic.”

Jimenez exited Wednesday’s game early due to tightness in his right leg. That’s the same leg he injured in April, which resulted in surgery that kept him out for most of the first half.

After running to catch a fly ball in the sixth inning, Jimenez pulled up gingerly but made his way back to the White Sox dugout under his own power. That scene, coupled with the 25-year-old’s injury history, initially caused a great deal of concern.

But today’s update provides a much more optimistic outlook. La Russa said Eloy Jimenez could potentially play sometime this weekend against the Minnesota Twins. However, he is not in the Chicago White Sox lineup for Thursday’s series opener.
