The Chicago White Sox may be down a big bat in their lineup. Outfielder Eloy Jimenez exited early from Friday night's game against the Cleveland Guardians with an apparent leg injury.

In the top of the eighth inning, Jimenez came up to the plate with two outs. After taking a big hack at the first pitch he saw, Jimenez hobbled to the first-base side of the plate and appeared to favor his right leg.

Trainers came out to check on Jimenez and promptly removed him from the game. Adam Engel entered the game in his place.
