Before Saturday, Eloy Jimenez has been out of action for the Chicago White Sox in spring training, but boy has he made his return known. The top prospect on the South Side and a top-five prospect in MLB, Jimenez is making sure no one has forgotten about just what a beast he is at the plate.
Jimenez hit a two-run homer against the Cubs Saturday, pinch-hitting late in that game. It was a beautiful opposite-field blast against the team that traded him last summer.

Then, on Sunday in his first start this spring training, Jimenez did it again, smashing another opposite-field dinger.
Got a nice ovation, then hit a bomb. Pray for the league. pic.twitter.com/1hbgEHzBbo

He wasn’t done though. The next time up, Jimenez cranked a triple. He finished Sunday’s game with a walk.
So, Jimenez didn’t play for a couple weeks and then when he came back all he accomplished was a pinch-hit home run, home run, triple and a walk in his first four plate appearances in Cactus League games.
Pray for the damn league is right.
