Jimenez, 21, has skyrocketed up prospects ranking boards since signing with the White Sox back in 2013. He is currently ranked as the number 3 prospect in all of baseball, only behind Vlad Guerrero Jr and Fernando Tatis Jr.
Jimenez is coming off his best season in the minors, hitting .337 with a .961 OPS and 22 home runs in only 108 games.
It is important to note that Jimenez has never stepped into a major league batting box and will be making more 5 times the amount of money Aaron Judge is set to receive this upcoming year.
Congrats on Securing the bag, Eloy. Now go win the ROTY and make Chicago good, again.
