The Chicago White Sox are set to get a big boost to their lineup starting on Monday night in Kansas City. After missing the entire season thus far, Eloy Jimenez is expected to join the team in Kansas City and DH for Monday’s game.
That’s certainly great news for the White Sox lineup.
Tony La Russa expects Eloy Jiménez to be in Kansas City tomorrow, and expects to put him in the lineup.

Jimenez suffered a left pectoral injury in late March attempting to dive for a fly ball against the Oakland Athletics. That has sidelined him for the whole season, keeping him out of the White Sox lineup.
But recently, Jimenez was designated for rehab stints to make progress on the injury and he seems ready, as the outfielder is hitting .293/.333/.488 with two home runs over 41 rehab at-bats.
Expect Jimenez to DH for the rest of the season with potentially some defensive shifts mixed in.
