Eloy Jiménez Biography
Eloy Jiménez (Eloy Arturo Jiménez Solano) is a Dominican professional baseball outfielder for the Chicago White Sox of Major League Baseball (MLB).
Eloy Jiménez Career
Eloy Jiménez was considered the top international free agent for 2013. MLB.com called Jiménez as a five-tool player, noting that during workouts he impressed scouts with his intelligence, speed, and gap-to-gap power. In July 2013, he signed with the Chicago Cubs for a $2.8 million signing bonus.
He made his professional debut in 2014 with the Arizona League Cubs, where he was limited to just 164 plate appearances due to a shoulder injury. When healthy, Jiménez reached base at a disappointing .268 clip. Still, scouts remained optimistic due to his young age and physical ability.
Eloy received a promotion to short-season single-A to start 2015 with the Eugene Emeralds. There, he fared considerably better, improving his on-base percentage to .328, and slugging seven home runs in 250 plate appearances.
Jiménez began the 2016 season with the low-A South Bend Cubs. He spent all of 2016 with South Bend, hitting .329 with 14 home runs and 81 RBIs in 112 games. After the season, the Cubs assigned him to the Mesa Solar Sox of the Arizona Fall League. Jiménez began the 2017 season with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League.
