Eloy Jiménez has suffered an early-season injury once again. The White Sox DH exited Sunday’s game against the Tigers early with left adductor soreness. Jiménez hurt himself while running to first base in the sixth inning. He grimaced in pain and slowed to a trot about halfway down the line, which made it clear something was wrong right away.

“It looks like Eloy’s got himself a sore leg,” said color commentator Steve Stone on the broadcast. “Right here, something gives way.”

Injuries have plagued Jiménez throughout his career. Last season he missed time due to a hamstring injury, a groin issue and an emergency appendectomy. Still, the 120 games he was limited to were a high water mark dating back to the 122 games he played in 2019, his rookie season. In 2021 and 2022 combined he only managed 139 games.

In the early stages of this season, Jiménez is batting .182 with no walks and two strikeouts.
