“If not now, when?” That was the Cubs’ explanation for dealing their remaining prospect gold for Jose Quintana in mid July. Jimenez, who headlined the White Sox’s return, seemingly embraced the same mantra, doing more damage with his bat than any other hitter in the minors after that trade. He hit .348/.405/.635 with 11 home runs, 16 doubles and a 37:17 K:BB in 195 plate appearances across stops at High-A and Double-A with his new organization. Unlike the game’s other elite outfield prospects, the chiseled 6-foot-4 Jimenez won’t be contributing with his legs, but profiles perfectly as a middle-of-the-order run producer. He has the raw power to string together 40-plus homer campaigns in his peak seasons, but in this era of widespread power, his potential to hit .290 or better might be just as appealing. With just 18 games under his belt at Double-A, Jimenez’s ETA is difficult to peg. He could be ready for the majors in July, but if the White Sox are disciplined enough to hold him down in a non-competitive season, they would gain an extra year of control.

  2. Eloy Jimenez 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The top international prospect in the 2013 international free agent class, Jimenez showed flashes of his potential with short-season Eugene in 2015. However, few could have seen him making this much progress between his age-18 and age-19 seasons. He led the pitcher-friendly Midwest League by a wide margin with a .901 OPS despite being 2.5 years younger than league average. Jimenez was raking when the weather was chilly in April and May and he kept raking all season long, even when most prospects hit a wall in July and August during their first exposure to a full-season league schedule. He continued to turn heads in the Arizona Fall League, where he became a Statcast darling due to some elite exit velocities. If someone wanted to nitpick Jimenez's offensive game, it would sound like this: "I kind of wish he walked a bit more as a 19-year-old." This is a top-10 dynasty league prospect with the potential to challenge for batting titles and hit 30-plus homers annually in the middle of one of baseball's best lineups.
  3. Eloy Jimenez 2016 Preseason Outlook
    The mere fact that he's even in the minors at his age says enough about Jimenez's potential. He was signed by the Cubs out of the Dominican Republic in 2013 as a 16-year-old pup, and he's already a veteran of two minor league seasons, covering more than 400 plate appearances. While his strikeout rate is a tad high, it's certainly not exorbitant and he did improve in that area (19.5-percent in 2014, 17.2-percent in 2015) for short-season Eugene last year. Understandably, he has a long way to go before he's patrolling the outfield at Wrigley, but seven home runs in 232 at-bats for Eugene as an 18-year-old bodes well for his future. Put simply, you could do worse than to throw a dart at Jimenez in a deep dynasty league.
