The White Sox will once again be without Eloy Jiménez for Game 1 of their Wild Card round series against the A’s, as the left fielder felt some discomfort during pregame workouts on Tuesday.
Jiménez injured his foot sliding at home plate last Thursday in Cleveland and hasn’t played since. White Sox manager Rick Renteria did say the slugger could be available to pinch hit on Tuesday and is optimistic Jiménez can return to the lineup for the second game of the series in Oakland.
