Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez left Tuesday's game after getting absolutely drilled in the elbow by a Jose Bautista fastball in the eighth inning. Jimenez, who hit a home run in the first inning, was 1-2 on the night, walking in his two other at-bats.

The pitch struck Jimenez in the left elbow at 102.3 MPH. Despite his elbow guard absorbing the blow, it was still enough to knock Jimenez out of the game. Bautista's pitch was the fastest thrown pitch this season that struck a batter. Thankfully, the White Sox list Jimenez as day-to-day after x-rays came back negative.

Adam Engel entered the game in place of Eloy Jimenez. Despite the Chicago White Sox loading the bases in the top of the eighth, they were unable to bring a run in and fell to Baltimore by a final of 5-3.
