Chicago White Sox OF Eloy Jiménez will miss an estimated 6-8 weeks with a right hamstring strain – The Mercury News

Chicago White Sox left fielder Eloy Jiménez will be out an estimated six to eight weeks after suffering a right hamstring strain, the team announced Sunday.

The Sox placed Jiménez on the 10-day injured list.

“After returning to Chicago, Eloy will undergo further evaluation by White Sox team physicians at Rush and a treatment plan will be put in place,” the Sox said in a team statement. “The club expects to be able to provide an update prior to Tuesday’s game.”

The injury occurred in Saturday’s 9-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins.

Jiménez hit a grounder to third in the second inning, stumbled after crossing first base and fell. He got to his feet but was taken off the field on a cart.

He is slashing .222/.256/.333 with one home run and seven RBIs in 11 games. He dealt with a bruised left ankle for a portion of this season. Jimenez played just 55 games last season after suffering a ruptured left pectoral tendon during a Cactus League game.
