White Sox top prospect ‘very close’ to being MLB-ready

White Sox

Chicago White Sox fans know they’re going through a lengthy rebuild,but many have been wondering when they’re going to see the next top prospect in their system make his Major League debut.

The answer may be fairly soon.

According to White Sox director of player development Chris Getz, top prospect Eloy Jimenez is “getting very close” to being deemed MLB-ready, at which point a promotion seems likely to follow.

Jimenez, a 21-year-old outfielder, was the prize piece acquired from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for Jose Quintana a year ago. A consensus top-ten prospect in all of baseball, he’s dominated both Double-A and Triple-A this season, including a .376 average and eight home runs in just 29 games at the latter level.

The White Sox held to a very high asking price when talking Quintana trades. They got what they wanted, and it sounds like they may begin reaping the benefits very soon.
