The Chicago White Sox, in the midst of a massive rebuild that has seen them collect many of the top prospects in the game, have announced that outfielder Eloy Jimenez and catcher Zack Collins have been promoted from Winston-Salem to Birmingham, the latter of which is their Double-A affiliate. Jimenez, who is still only 20 years old, came into the 2017 season ranked as the No. 9 prospect in baseball, according to Baseball Prospectus. With the Chicago Cubs at the time, Jimenez began the season late due to a shoulder issue. In 174 plate appearances at Myrtle Beach, Jimenez posted a .841 OPS with eight home runs. He was dealt to the White Sox on July 13 in exchange for left-handed starter Jose Quintana, and he has hit .345 with a 1.092 OPS and eight home runs in 122 plate appearances since the trade.
