It’s unclear exactly when Jiménez hurt himself. Gavin Sheets hit for Jiménez in the top of the second inning, then took his spot in right field. Jiménez grounded into a double play in his lone at-bat of the game, and took the field to play defense afterwards.
Jiménez has only played 201 games over the past three seasons due to numerous injuries. This season alone he’s missed time due to a hamstring injury, another leg injury and an emergency appendectomy.
